The Friends That Made Me Me – Katy W

I adore this Friends piece by Katy W.  It’s a remarkable tribute to “those lunatic girls” and makes me wish I’d had a group of friends like this growing up.  I love that the written word kept these girls together when they all went in different directions.  I love that they still laugh, travel, write [...]

The Friends That Made Me Me: Bex

One of the things I love about reader Bex (who blogs over at The Olive Dragonfly) is that whatever she does, she commits to one hundred per cent.  She doesn’t just look forward to things, she gets I-can’t-breathe excited.  She doesn’t just take a couple of pictures, she takes a whole exhibition’s worth.  And she [...]

The Friends That Made Me Me – Carly

This is bordering on one of my favourite Friends That Made Me Me of all time.  Fantastic, evocative writing aside, it’s a true celebration of the sheer diversity of female friendships and what we give each other.  How different friends can fulfil such different roles.  It’s a magical thing, isn’t it?  This is perfect Tuesday morning [...]

Real Married: The Friend That Made Me Me

It was a long time ago when Esme first asked me if I could post her Real Married piece on exactly the 14th May.  I’ll let Esme explain why.  Suffice to say, that these two are so very lucky to have each other, they know it, and they don’t take any of it for granted.  There’s a [...]

The Friend That Made Me Me – Jessica

***Competition Winner!  A couple of weeks ago we introduced the fabulous The Sewing Cafe on Weekend Wonderings.  Becky and Fay very generously gave away a bunting kit for one lucky reader, and the winner is Hollie (comment no.4).  Hollie is planning a surprise 50th wedding anniversary for her husband’s grandparents and wanted the bunting to [...]

The Friend That Made Me Me – Joan Hunter Dunn

One of the things that I love the most about the Friend That Made Me series is how each person has such a different approach to it.  The lessons we’ve learnt from the people to whom we pay tribute are so varied, and the situations we met them in so profound, often entirely unintentionally.  I [...]

The Friend That Made Me Me {Anna}

It’s been a while since we had a Friend That Made Me Me post, and we’ve missed them. So we were super pleased when Anna sent us her FTMMM post and couldn’t wait to read about her friend, because hey, this woman is cool, the friend that made her her must be *very* cool. And [...]

The Friend That Made Me Me – Ginny

I debated running this post because making it public makes me feel reserved and British and oh-this-is-far-too-self-aggrandising-and-good-Lord-stop-trumpeting,-woman.  But I’m doing it.  In the name of ignoring our critical voices, I’m doing it.  Because it’s beautiful writing and if it was written about anyone else I’d have it up on the blog in a nanosecond, no questions asked.  This is [...]

The Friend That Made Me, Me – Penny

I get a lot of emails from people who love the “made me, me” series.  Whether it be books, or friends, these series shed light on what makes members of the AOW community who they are, on their stories and histories.   Penny‘s written for us before, writing that makes you want to break out [...]

The friend that made me, me – Anna

This mini-series in which Aisling talked about L and I talked about Hel, was all the brain child of Anna (umm…like most of the amazing content on AOW at the moment actually – she is ON FIRE). When Anna suggested the idea, we just *knew* she had someone wonderful in mind (Anna is the type of [...]
