With everything going on in the world right now, it’s so important to show those closest to you how much you love and appreciate them. With that in mind, June 8th is the holiday that we don’t want to miss – National BFF Day!
With this holiday around the corner, we started thinking about the beauty of friendships and what it is that draws people from different backgrounds and walks of life into a lifelong bond. In good times and bad, there’s no one like your best pal to share in the laughs, tears, and hugs. A BFF is a soulmate in our book and yes...you’re allowed to have more than one best friend! In the spirit of celebrating our besties, we asked the Yummie team about their BFF’s and the qualities they value most in a friend.
What are the top three qualities you look for in a BFF?
Kristin, Wholesale Customer Service Associate: Kind, trustworthy, and loyal
Ashley, Marketing Coordinator: Trustworthy, easy to be around, and funny
Geri, Account Manager: Loyal, down for whatever, funny, there for me anytime, and most importantly thinks I’m funny
Kai-Rhie, eCommerce Customer Service Associate: Loyal, kind, and witty
Give a shout out to your BFF: Who are they, how long have you been friends, and what do you love most about your friendship?
Geri, Account Manager: My BFF Dallas!! We have been friends since college, and no matter how much long it goes without seeing each other it’s like no time has passed at all.
Kai-Rhie, eCommerce Customer Service Associate: My BFF is actually my husband! We’ve been friends since we were in kindergarten and have been there for each other through every major milestone in our lives thus far. What I love most about our friendship is that even though we’re married, the foundation of our relationship has always been our friendship and we can always share a laugh no matter the situation.
Kristin, Wholesale Customer Service Associate: Kelly. We've been friends for 40 years. We have a friendship where no matter how long it has been since we spoke, we pick up as if we speak everyday.
Ashley, Marketing Coordinator: I have three best friends and they all came into my life at different times. Kristina I've known since we were in kindergarten, Jair, since high school and Tanisha since college. I just love how easy it is to be around them. I love that we all know the importance of friendship and recognize that effort has to be put in on both sides for it to be happy and healthy. These girls mean the world to me!
We can all use some best-friend love and support during these difficult times. How will you be celebrating BFF Day during these times of social distancing?
- Kai-Rhie, eCommerce Customer Service Associate: Since I’m lucky enough to live with my best friend and BFF Day is actually the day after our oldest son’s birthday, we’ll probably be eating leftover cake and watching Star Wars movies together!
- Geri, Account Manager: Thankful for Facetime!! It has made it easy to stay in touch with my BFF during social distancing.
- Kristin, Wholesale Customer Service Associate: Checking in to make sure Kelly is well and sharing a laugh or two.
Ashley, Marketing Coordinator: A lot of wine over a lengthy video chat seems ideal!
Treat Your Bestie to the Best
We’ve been making a list of how to celebrate with our besties in a time of social distancing and we’re thinking a Zoom happy hour or movie night may be in order. To make things extra special your bestie, why not send over a super soft and stylish loungewear set to wear for the call? Most of us haven’t been able to physically see our friends in a long time, so sending them a chic, comfy gift like this is a thoughtful way to show you care. For gal pals near and far, a Slub Knit Cocoon Wrap Cardigan with Belt and a pair of Rachel Cotton Stretch Shaping Leggings from our WFH collection helps your bestie feel fully ready to tackle any at-home project in style.
Cheers to soft support from Yummie shapewear and strong support from your lifelong friends!
