Relationships are the zest of life. Whether your “us” is a friendship or romantic relationship or both, connections with others bring different dimensions and perspectives to your world. Some are more significant than others, but they all have one thing in common: one second that person was not in your life, and then the next second they were, and that is the moment your life in some way changed forever.
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!
What happens when you or one of your friends moves or no longer lives close by, and that convenience of just “popping over” or meeting at the coffee shop is no longer a possibility? While saying goodbye to a close friend can cause heartache and uncertainty, we do have some control over what happens with these friendships. I’m so excited to share some tips from my own experience on how to make a long-distance friendship last after a big move! I have found that sometimes our long-distance friendships can become some our closest relationships!
What makes the invitation to “meet for coffee” or “talk over coffee” so warm and alluring? For me, it is knowing that during that conversation, something as strong as the coffee I am drinking is going to take place. I never know what it is going to involve, or at what point of the conversation it will happen, but I know it’s a guarantee that I will leave that conversation somehow different than when it began.
