A Stylish Five Year Blogiversary Celebration Week: 2009/2010

I am very excited about today because all week I have some awesome surprises for my readers! This coming Saturday marks 5 years since I created Stylelista Confessions and to me five years is a huge accomplishment! It has been an amazing five years and I couldn't be more grateful, but I am excited to recap the past five years over the next 4 days. Every day this week I am going to share my favorite post from the past five years and on Friday I will share a very special celebration for this blog that has become such an important part of my life. You might recall that I started my blog back in September 2009 as an outlet for me to share my inspiration. Since 2009 was short I am combining 2009 and 2010 for today's flash back post. This was one of my very early posts and it blows my mind to see how far I have become not only as a person but as a writer. In this post I share my thoughts on my friendships. Five years later I am still lucky enough to be friends with some of these girls, but reading this post makes me realize even at only 19, I still knew the value of a friend.
"A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are"

If that quote doesn't sum up friendship I honestly do not know what does then. So I know I have written a prior post about my friends but a lot has changed and I have been blessed to have been given more friends that I can honestly say will always have my back no matter what., 

You know I mention B a lot, and while she may not know this I admire her so much and look up to her as a person. She has such a great sense of composure and strength through even the hardest times and I respect her as a person and am blessed to call her one of my closest friends. 

S who I have known since I was 14 has basically been through it all with me. With every broken heart, fight with our parents, fight with each other, and the best times ever she has been there for me. I so wish she could be here in Arizona with me but I know that for the rest of my life she will be my best friend no matter what. 

F, who has recently become one of my closest and dearest friends has been there for me when nobody else was. She talks me through every major situation and batttle I fight, and would fight till the end for me as I would for her. Her strength loyalty and beauty--- on the inside and out-- makes me so glad to call her my best friend. 

S, who has been my friend since the age of 5 has been the one and only person who completely understands everything about me to the tee. He is the most motivated and amazing individuals I have ever met and his passion for his work is so intense it gives me goosebumps. He has been through some of the toughest times and has always come out on top even better than before. This is someone who I will have as a friend until the day I leave earth. 

And finally L, she is the strongest and most beautiful individuals on the inside and out. Her life is not easy and her composure and strength is so admirable I envy it. She is being put through such hard times but her dedication and loyalty to her family is immense. She has had my back through my darkest days and has been someone who will drop everything to help another person. I am so glad I have her as one of my best friends.

Those are my closest friends and while I can't include everyone each one of my friends knows my love and gratefulness for them. I wouldn't be where I am without them and of course my family. Being a Stylelista isn't easy, but I get by with the help of my friends.
So until next time... Live Stylishly

Tomorrow I will be sharing my favorite post from 2011 so make sure to come back all week for a new recap of the past five years!
