Ever since the book came out, I've received feedback about how it's made women think about friendships throughout their lives, as well as who is in their lives now. The goal of this blog is to open up and create a dialogue about friendships: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Each week I will post my thoughts, experiences, as well as various articles, topics or quotes that I feel are important when examining female friendships. Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to hearing from you!

The Power of Inside Jokes

I love to laugh; it’s one of the best feelings in the world.  When you experience a moment with a friend – something funny is said or you both witness something humorous – it becomes a cherished inside joke.  It reconnects you two and allows you to re-live a hilarious or memorable experience.

It also provides a moment that only you two can truly understand.  If you try to explain it to someone else, it’s usually not as funny or is too complicated.  Have you tried explaining an inside joke?!  I usually get weird looks or “I don’t get it” responses.

Think about your friends – are there specific moments that cause you to laugh when just thinking about them?   Is there a phrase you tell a friend that has a certain meaning only you two know?
