October was crazy with work and planning new shoots so adding travel to the mix was a little stressful, but very worth the stress. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I have been back and forth between LA and San Francisco lately. A big reason for that is some of my closest friends live there so we spend a lot of time visiting each other as much as possible. Every year they become more and more important to me and I smile knowing they feel the same way about me. If there is anything I have learned in the last couple of years it's that the circle of people in your life is something you create; it's not something that just happens. I have friends who are like family and I know it's not because I just got lucky. In your 30s you start to reevaluate friendship and who you really want around you for the long haul. It's not about convenience and quantity anymore, it's about quality. Its incredible that my closest friends not only date back to high school and college, but also just five or six years ago and still going strong. They make the effort to stay close just as much as I do and I'm so grateful. It only gets harder to do as we get older and I'm so proud that I have surrounded myself with people that not only find it equally as important, but also don't consider it a chore. Whether we live down the street from one another or across the country, we make the effort to check in, facetime, etc. and it never feels like an obligation. It feels like a necessity and that is amazing. When we have a trip planned it's all we talk about for weeks and literally count down to our next dance party (it's a thing). Speaking of which...please click here, turn up the volume and scroll down. You're welcome.
Thanks for capturing this ridiculous moment in time Elyse :)
