Kendall from c.w.f.h.l

hello readers and friends of fairy tales are true.  i’m kendall from c.w.f.h.l and i’m honored to be guest posting here today!!  I was a little nervous when sarah asked me – she has so many readers and this is my very first guest post.

sarah and I went to college together.  with our other best friend Ashley.  We all met first semester – ashley and I lived on the same hall and sarah and I had american history together.
Everything was perfect.

Then we all graduated.  And lived in different states and countries.
It was hard being without these two - but over these last 5 years we have learned lots of ways to stay connected.   Can I share a few with you??

  1. start a book club.  this may sound silly since you won’t actually be able to meet up but using a site like goodreads.com helps.  It’s a nice feeling knowing they are reading the same book as me.
  2. send snail mail.  There is nothing better than getting a card or postcard from a long distance friend.  Sarah and Ashley are the best at this!!!  
  3. start a blog.  It’s perfect when a few days or week has gone by with out a phone call or email.  I am able to get a little sneak peak into their lives. 
  4. plan trips.  It’s hard.  It requires a lot of planning.  But make it happen.  At least once a year.  There is nothing better.  I promise.
i am very blessed to have these two in my life.

many many thanks sadie for letting me guest post. 
i can’t wait to see all the photos from your trip.  xo kendall

  1. i had no idea you two went to college together, let alone knew each other! SO AWESOME. i think planning friends-only trip is a necessary extravagance! definitely a great idea which takes lots of work...but so worth it.

  4. this makes me feel so much better - me and my best friends from college all moved far away from each other. I moved to France for a year - so hopefully this August we'll be doing a big get-together!

  10. My three best friends from high school and I still stay connected even after all these years (and each of us living in a different state).. and one of the ways we do that is by a blog that the 4 of us share. It's such a great way to communicate to everyone!

    Love the book club idea though.. must. check. it. out.

  15. P.s. I did not know that you went to flagler college in st. Augustine FL, what a beautiful college! My family stopped in st. Augustine on a road trip to Disneyworld and we loved it so much, it was the most beautiful little town ever!
