There is a special bond between women that no man will ever understand. As much as we try to explain it, the words never come.
There is an honesty and realness between two women. It is a feeling to which there is no description, but it allows us the comfort to be who we really are.
We open up to one another. Talk about our fears, our dreams, our lives...
Friends are there for us--through life's ups and downs, the happiest days of our lives to the saddest days that we just need someone to let us cry on their shoulder--whether that's person to person, a phone call or even online.
Your friends may be ones that you've known for years. Or maybe you have never met them in real life, but rather have known them for years, months, days through your blog. I know that I have made so many of my friends online...and they? Are amazingness.
***What is This About?***
In 1999, Kappa Delta Sorority created National Women's Friendship Day and in 2009, the celebration was expanded to the entire month of September. In 2010 it is expanding to International Women's Friendship Month, the celebration offers all women the opportunity to honor their special friends. (source http://nwfd.kappadelta.org//)
***What Bloggers are Doing***
For the month of September a small group of women bloggers have come together to celebrate friendship. All month long we will be hosting events, contests, reviews, giveaways, and Twitter parties all in the name of friendship!
