Those who have participated in the CAbi Experience understand the power of friendship. Spring and fall Collections have come and gone, but one thing remains the same season after season–the deep and meaningful friendships that are formed. So many lives have been transformed because of the caring circles of friends formed through CAbi. What starts out as just shopping turns into so much more.
This Valentine’s Day, along with celebrating significant others, let’s celebrate near and dear friends. Do you swap recipes with anyone, or share stories about raising your kids? Maybe you have a go-to friend for shopping expeditions and fashion advice? Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to show your friends how much they mean to you and that you value their friendship. Here are some suggestions on little things you can do to show you care:
- Send a beautiful card you can personalize with a thoughtful message, or give a framed photo of you and your friend.
- Organize a Valentine’s Day lunch, or you could offer to host a dinner for a group of friends.
- A spa outing is always a great way to reconnect with friends and decompress together while enjoying a little pampering.
- And then there’s chocolate. Yes, it’s Valentine’s Day, so all things chocolate–samplers, candies, even a decadent, cherry-topped frosted cake–are spot on. Plus, what pairs perfectly with chocolate? Wine! Have a few glasses with a friend and you are sure to be laughing and sharing fun stories in no time.
We’re so busy nowadays that it can be tough to maintain our valuable friendships, but these are the people who give meaning to our lives and stand with us on good days and bad. We couldn’t think of a better quote to describe friendship as this one, “Hold a true friend and don’t let go for a true friend comes once in a lifetime.” What better excuse to share those chocolates with someone?
Add your comment below and tell us about a friend who you couldn’t live without. How have they touched your life, and what message of love and thanks do you have for them? Happy Valentine’s Day!
