Lasting Impressions Round Two

Last year, I ran a series on the blog called "Lasting Impressions." I've been thinking its time to resurrect the series. Lasting Impressions were your stories about friendships. The series ran for several months and no two stories were alike, all were relate able.  If you've read this blog for any amount of time, you know my friendships are among the most treasured relationships in my life. Lasting Impressions are stories about those people who, whether in your life for a moment or a lifetime, in some way changed your life. Maybe they are your sister, brother, significant other, a childhood friend, a mentor, a perosn who may have only come in random contact with.

I’d like to hear about your friendships. What made them stronger, what ended them? How do you celebrate your friendships? What are your favorite memories from childhood friendships? How do you define friendship? How do you deal with hard friendships? Simply anything you want to talk about regarding friendships. Friends are something that we all have and we’ve all dealt with.

Even if you submitted a story last year, would you consider writing another one? If you weren't part of the series last year, would you consider contributing this year? The posts will go up on Fridays. Once I find out who is interested, I'll make up a schedule and let you know when I would need your post submitted by.

So what do you say, who's in?

I do remember this project! I can't think of any stories to tell, but I'll keep thinking about it.

I'm in! I have a few different stories I could tell. Just let me know the schedule (and give me a weekish to get a post together) and I'll send one over to you!

This is fun, Mandy :)

I'm definitely in. The tough part will be deciding what friendship to focus on! I can't wait to read these!

I need to go back through your archives and read these posts & many others. I have absolutely nothing planned for the weekend so want to carve out some time at some point to do some blog catching up!!

I'd love to contribute. I'm sure it will bring back a lot of memories. And it'll be my first "writing project" outside of my own blog.

Friendships are so important to me. I cherish my friends and let them know ALL THE TIME how much I love them.

I am not a writer but I look forward to reading all of the posts.

Very cool! I think I'm going to be too up to my eyes to write one of these again, but I will make popcorn and hunker down for each of them!
