Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. I trust that you are all enjoying your holiday. Yes, I do love my job, this is a busy time for us in the world of travel, if you can imagine, lots of people want to travel during the holidays and there are lots of cancelled flights. So while I do get lots of days off until January 5th, I have been on call. Unfortunately, we have been busy!
Me? I had a wonderful holiday. Spent time with my family here in Chi, hosted some friends at my house, had a wonderful dinner with some friends on Christmas. And was reunited with a friend I haven't seen in a long time...let's just say, I hope to see him again very soon.
Last night, I had a chance to go out with a friend for some cocktails. We tried a different neighborhood...Logan Square....let's just say, it was a different scene. We felt dressed up and cute....which is not necessarily the case when we go out in the LP. And there were just a lot of beards..Gentlemen seriously, lumberjack chic is pretty hot, but not when every guy in the bar is like that. And well, you know me, I like the bald guys.
But anyway....on to my subject for this post. The gorge blonde that I was out with last night (and BTW, it has a little pink in it now) said something that rang true to me...You can tell a lot about a woman by the quality of her friends. And if you think about it, it is so true. How many classy ladies do you know who also have fantastic friends? That usually means she is a pretty good friend. And yes, we all know those ladies that don't have a lot of girlfriends, probably means that she doesn't treat her friends very well.
A long time ago, my mom told me that my uncle told her that if you can count 5 good friends in your lifetime, you should consider yourself lucky. Well, I am happy to say that I consider myself very lucky. For all you classy ladies out there, can you name 3-5 friends that would drop everything if you needed them? Last night, I found out that my best friend (whom I love dearly) was emailing another friend of mine (unbeknownst to me) while I was dating the last douche bag boyfriend to make sure that I was OK as she was very worried about me. WOW, thanks to that BF, it's really nice to learn how much she cares.
So here is my message ladies seriously....it is classy to be a good girlfriend because at the end of the day, men come and go, but you always have your family and friends (and of course, there is also my favorite quote, boys come and go, diamonds are forever, that one works as well). And you need to take care of those relationships. Return phone calls, shoot a text, be mindful of your girlfriends. Practice good girlfriend code, don't blow them off for a new boyfriend all of the time, don't hit on her ex or her potential new BF, be honest, be supportive and just be there when she needs you.
Well, here is cheers to all of you! Happy New Year! This classy lady is fabulously happy and ready for 2015! I hope you all are as well.
......Keep your chin, heels and standards high....
BONSOIR, CHEERS AND CIAO BELLAS!
A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. That's my girl Coco Chanel. Well, being the single gal in Chicago, selling and marketing luxury travel and being a Sorority Director for Gamma Phi Beta, I have a lot to say. So this blog is my random thoughts on everything on love, life, fashion, movies, fitness and beyond and advice on how to be a lady and have some class!
- 39 (AND HOLDING) year old single gal in downtown Chicago who loves Jazzercise, Gamma Phi Beta, friends, family, fashion, fine wine and movies. I will admit I am a SNOB about the following things: wine, coffee, handbags, shoes, cars and men.
