I can honestly say that my marriage love language & my friendship love language is completely different. In my marriage, my love languages are words of affirmation & touch. In friendship? Teasing.
I know that isn't exactly the most positive expression of love, but it's me.
Because of this quality, I have been known to recite a friendship disclaimer to newcomers. If you haven't heard it yet, you should be educated so as to not offend you in the future.
It usually goes something like this:
"Ok. If we're going to close friends, you should be aware of something. I tend to show affection through sarcasm and teasing. If I really meant the things I say, I wouldn't be saying them. Honestly, I like to avoid confrontation. So, don't be offended or take me seriously. If I give you a hard time, it means I like you. If I offend you, please tell me so I can correct it. Deal?"
Speaking of friends, I have awesome ones. My 4th of July weekend was amazing because of them! My white self spent a LOT of time at the lake with my girlies. Thank the good Lord for sunshine! Lake time, BBQ, friends & fireworks = awesome sauce. Here are a few of my favorite pics from this weekend.

Maui Waui's at Cruisers. Yum!
Now, my skin is recuperating from all the sun. The tomato face is now a nice tan. I just need a nap and I'll be good.
I love my friends. They're worth the lack of sleep.
