My best friend and I insist on hugging each other. Primarily we do this in place of just saying ‘goodbye’ or ‘see you later’ after we’ve hung out for awhile. We do this to let each other know that we care about each other a lot and want the best for each other. The physical closeness brings an added layer to our friendship.

We are going to be there for each other through thick and thin and what better way to remind each other of that than with a hug?

Tomorrow (2/27.16) we’re going to go out and have coffee and simply just be around each other. I have plans on taking him bowling – or sledding just so he can do something fun and not have to be couped up in his girlfriends house.

I also bought him a six-pack of his favorite beer. It’s a difficult to find Italian beer that I think will be a nice surprise for him. It’s just another way for me to let him know I love him as he deals with being unemployed.
