Today is National Best Friends Day, and what better way to celebrate than with the person I luckily get to call my blogger bestie, Nancy (Happily Ever Nancy). Between our full-time jobs and what we have working on the side, it always means the world when we get a moment to just chill and not be so busy in our heads brewing up ideas or working on The Casual Creatives! Just this last weekend I had the opportunity to finally catch up with Nancy after she came back from her travels abroad to have a moment to share happiness with one another over a casual picnic!
Now a little history on our friendship if you don’t know already – Nancy and I met a few years ago on Twitter and connected over our blogs and interest in that community. When we finally met in person, it was like we knew each other for so much longer! Since then, we’ve gotten to share moments of happiness by going to Disneyland, making trips to LA, and of course eating great food and having coffee.
But sometimes we don’t always have time to do fun adventurous things like that, so what’s an easy way to share happiness?
A Picture Perfectly Planned Picnic!
Okay, we might have overdone it just a bit, but we like our aesthetics and we are always up for the perfect photo op and picnic spread!
But the real key to a perfect picnic? Snacks and great company! Since I’ve got the company thing down having my bestie back, let’s talk snacks! Now, I’m not talking just any snacks either! I’m talkin’ everything from fresh fruit, crackers and cheese, and of course the best part of it all – Pocky! I’ve always been a fan of Pocky growing up (would literally beg my mom for it at the grocery store) and have always loved bringing it along to share with family and friends. So it’s only fitting to bring it to a picnic and share these bits of happiness of chocolate coated biscuits with Nancy!
What it Means to #ShareHappiness
It’s those moments of laughter from taking trying to capture those aesthetically pleasing photos, those awkward run ins with strange situations, those late nights we spent up creating cool things, and those moments to celebrate our friendship over simple things like snacks (hint: we love food).
Pocky has been one of our favorite snacks to munch on while we’re up late creating and it was the perfect snack to share for us to catch up over! So it’s incredibly fitting that Pocky’s slogan is #ShareHappiness, because it’s what Nancy and I do best when we’re together!
