I am sitting in a hotel room right now. As in I am away from home for work for an entire week. Y'all last night I went to Lognhorn and ate BY MYSELF! It was wonderful. (Of course I ate the left overs tonight and I am staying in.) The upside to this trip is how close I am to my best friend since high school. We are planning on getting together while I am here and I will be in heaven with her new baby boy. She is my Gulley.
What is a Gulley you might ask. A Gulley is a friend who has your back, is the one you call when the big things happen, and the one who your favorite memories are linked to.
Melanie Shankle's newest book (and my favorite of the three), is called "Nobody's Cuter Than You" and is all about friendship.
I loved reading all about the multiple friendships that Melanie had growing up and how she met Gulley. I especially love that she tells it like it is. We all have our husbands but we desperately need girlfriends too. Because as much as I love my husband and he is my best friend, I can't imagine not being able to call my best girl friend when the big things happen.
In a way, I wished I had saved this book for this week because I really need something to read and I already re-read it. I highly recommend heading out to your local bookstore (I heard rumors it's even at Walmart) and share it with your Gulley when you finish.
**I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for my review but I would totally have bought it either way.
