Last week my best friend and I decided to take a full day off from work and spend it with each other. Although we live in the same borough–we have almost opposite work schedules so finding time to chill is an effort.
We decided that we wanted to have the most chill day possible so where else would we go but to the beach? It was a perfect 80 degree day, the sun was present, the breeze was just phenomenal… I strapped on my miraclesuit and made my way onto the hot sand.
You guys know I am always running, running home, running to events, running to the gym and sometimes just plain running races! So to lay down on the beach without not one care in the world was simply awesome.
The best part was the sun on my skin. I must have needed some vitamin D desperately because when I was lying there it almost seemed as if I was being refueled and replenished by that great big ball of fire. While the bestie and I caught up, we both enjoyed just being so close to the water and giving all attention to each other and ignoring everything else.
Did I mention we went to Coney Island? This area has become a bit of a tourist area since my day. Back in the day *only* Brooklyn people would come to Coney Island because only Brooklyn people could survive Coney Island. Now there were plenty of tourist spots and shops–a far cry from what it used to be!
It was so nice to put life on pause to spend time with my favorite girl. The one who is always there to listen to me moan and groan about pretty much everything, who I can laugh myself silly with and confide my deepest fears to. From being an excellent Godmother to being an even more excellent friend, I am so blessed to have her in my life!
