Happy August, friends! It’s so hard to believe that it is coming up on the 6 month anniversary of my blog, Citrus and Sun! In this post, I am so excited to be accepting the Sunshine Blogger Award from a very special friend who I cannot wait to introduce to you! I wanted this post to be so much more than just a recognition and acceptance of this special award. I am so thrilled to use this post as an opportunity to celebrate the amazing community of bloggers that I am so excited to be a part of, and to highlight some of their “sunny” places in this massive online world!
So first I need to disclose the fact that since starting this post on friendships, I’ve naturally rediscovered the song “I’ll Be There For You” by The Rembrandts. Yup, this song has been playing on repeat in my head, along with visions of our beloved characters from Friends falling onto that big comfy couch in the middle of the city. While I have never blissfully danced around a big beautiful fountain with my friends (although this is totally a life goal), we have had some pretty amazing experiences together throughout the years.
“If we could sit together a moment
and talk forever just to pass the time…”

“It seems strange
How we used to wait for letters to arrive
But what’s stranger still
Is how something so small can keep you alive.”
-The Arcade Fire (We Used To Wait)
