We are continuing our countdown to Valentine’s Day on Home & Family and today we are celebrating the love for our BEST FRIENDS! So I decided to make a very literal gift to show your best gal pals how much you appreciate and love them. Valentine’s Day is not only a day to celebrate your significant other – sometime’s those most significant to you are the friendships you cultivate.
Ameka and I have been friends for almost 10 years … we met through our Amazing hubbies who have been best friends since they were 10 years old. It feels like it was meant to be! Ameka aka Meeks and I have been there for each other through many trials and triumphs in our lives. She is quite literally my rock – all my girlfriends are. Which inspired this DIY.
