Happy International Day of Friendship !

Today is International Day of Friendship, a day to show your friends how much you care about them. No, I must admit, I didn't know that it existed either until an email pinged into my inbox ! I decided to go looking for a clever title for this blogpost and came across some classic quotes about friendship :

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”― C.S. Lewis

This TOTALLY sums up my online bosom buddies !

“Tis the privilege of friendship to talk nonsense, and to have her nonsense respected.” ― Charles Lamb, The Life, Letters and Writings of Charles Lamb

As does this one !

“A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.” ― Elbert Hubbard

Aww, very true.

“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.” ― Linda Grayson

And this one is just perfect !

As well as coming up with a range of friendship-inspired gifts for those special people in your life - there are thank you cards and personalised keepsakes, including my fave, the emergency chocolate bar ! - Hallmark have created The Friendship Report, a research project to discover how modern friendships work and the qualities that bring great friends together. They have created a fun infographic with the results, including the top 5 ingredients for a close friendship, the average time spent socialising with friends, the best pick me ups when you’re down and many more. (Click on the picture below to see it full size.)

So to all my online friends (and any offline friends who may be reading this !),  this is for you ! :
