(Bosom) Friend Fridays

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Lacey Gault

I can’t believe I haven’t told you about Lacey. This girl is a VIP in my life, a hall-of-famer. Two years ago, I went to church.  It came time to “greet the people around you” which, let’s be real, is my least favorite time of the service.  Usually I plan my bathroom break around it. …

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Graham Stoner

Sometimes, you find a friend that you didn’t even realize you needed until he’s there, fixing things around your house and giving good hugs. I hired Graham Stoner (aka Handy Graham) off the internet in 2008.  He had just been voted Nashville’s Best Handyman, and shoot.  I needed a handyman.  Simple as that, our friendship…

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Charlie Hardin Murphey

I have this list of “favorite” friends – not necessarily “closest” friends, but the ones who, without fail, make my world happier whenever I see them. Charlie Murphey is one of those friends. I mean, look at him.  A V-neck cardigan with nothing underneath.  If you know Charlie, you know OF COURSE HE WOULD. I…

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Greta Weisman

If you’ve read this blog for any amount of time, you know about Greta.  I mean, she has her own tag and everything. Greta is the most delightful little pixie of a friend – she loves bubbles and snowflakes and fairy tales and red lipstick and goat cheese and sand dollars and road trips and…

(Bosom) Friend Monday: Laura Nelp

We haven’t had a (Bosom) Friend Friday in a coon’s age – and let’s be honest, it’s not even Friday.  But if there’s anyone worth resurrecting this series for – even on a Monday – it’s Laura Nelp. Laura and I met when I was in 6th grade, and she was in 7th.  We had…

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Ginger Morby

This weekend, I’m flying to Phoenix for Ginger Morby’s wedding. Small detail: I have never met Ginger Morby. I became blog-acquainted with Ginger and her sister Valerie eons ago, and then we started emailing, and – yes – even Facebook video messaging.  If you are wondering how I could grow to like someone enough to…

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Hunter Lane

On my 25th birthday, I was hanging off the back of a boat on Lake Washington, all barfy and miserable.  But without that wretched experience, I never would have met the boat owner – who later, after I moved to Nashville, put me in touch with Hunter Lane. And now that I know Hunter Lane, I…

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Meg Allison

It’s not every friend who has starred on a reality TV show.  But then again, it’s not every friend who writes amazing songs, sings like a bird, and is gorgeous to boot. Blog, meet my dear second-soul, Meg Allison. Meg and I met after I saw her play at the Bluebird Cafe in early 2008. …

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Christina B. Ward

Friendships forged in fire can never be broken.  When you experience horrors side-by-side, the bond is forever.  When you see things that no human should ever have to see, experience atrocities that will never be spoken of again, and somehow live to tell the tale – that is what authentic, everlasting camaraderie is made of.…

(Bosom) Friend Fridays: Miranda Runcie

When I started this blog at the dawn of time (2007), I really didn’t think that anyone apart from my mom and the dozens of boys who loved and wanted to wed me were reading it. I was wrong. You want to know who was reading it?  A complete and utter stranger named Miranda Runcie.…
