Let Me Tell You About My Best Friend...

...we've been best friends for 22 years.  Through middle school, high school, and college, countless seasons, school years, and milestones have come and gone, but we've been there through it all.  It's crazy to think just how long 22 years is, and just how much we've been through.  However, I would never want anyone else to have been by my side, but my best friend.

When I was first introduced to Treat (the new greeting card website by Shutterfly) I began looking at all their pretty cards and I fell in love with their Friendship cards.  I knew that I had to make a card for my best friend to let her know just how much she means to me.  I thought it would be really fun to do a picture card with a 'throwback' picture on it, not only because it was cute, but for another reason.
Card c/o Treat, but opinions are all my own.

I live in New Jersey, which is where Shannon (my best friend) lived until she moved to Texas when we were younger.  Every year she would come back to New Jersey for the whole summer, every summer until last year when she started grad school in Kansas City (which I am so proud of her for!).  Last summer she was able to come back for a weekend, but this year she wasn't able to make it back due to her school schedule.  Since we haven't seen each other in quite a while I thought it would be cute to use a picture from when we were little ones for this card! 
I love how Treat gives you the option to put your pictures on their cards, as it makes them so personal and unique.  In addition to adding your pictures you can put the recipient's name and add your signature to the card so that it is all your own!  If you'd like Treat, will even send it in the mail for you, which makes everything super easy to get cards to the ones you love, like your best friend.
I'm happy that I get to send such a beautiful card to my best friend to let her know how much her friendship means to me.  I'm lucky to have such an amazing friendship and I love that Treat has allowed me to show this.  I cannot wait to write a note to Shannon and get this in the mail to her ASAP!
