I’ve always liked that song. “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold!”
I used to make friends much easier when I was younger. I would pretty much say that anyone was my “best friend” when I was really little. Then I learned better. I met my absolute best friend when I was little, but we actually became best friends the summer after 6th grade. I am so blessed to have her in my life!
Unfortunately she lives two states away. While we text pretty much every day, it’s still hard to not have her close to hang out with. So I have been trying to make new friends. Living in Nashville, I do pretty much everything with my sister, who is also one of my absolute best friends! Now I live an hour away from her. The few friends I had here from before deployment have all moved away.
I’m determined though! I just recently joined the Fort Campbell Enlisted Spouses’ Club. They do a lot of get togethers and charity events. I was excited to find out about it! Tonight was the first event I’ve gone to. We met at Horsefeathers, which is a pottery painting place. They also have wooden items that you can paint. I didn’t end up painting anything. I just wanted to meet people. And I did! I sat with a couple of ladies and had a blast! I can’t wait to get to know them better.
So hopefully soon I will be posting more about my new friends and the Spouses’ Club!
I’ve been thinking of joining the ESC too.

You totally should!! I’m excited about it and I’ve only been to one event! Hehe.
That’s wonderful! It’s always nice to be a part of a group that offers so much fun and friendship. Happy for you!
