While Galentine’s Day may only sit on the calendar once a year – it’s a holiday that Caitlin and Danielle celebrate 24/7/365! This is a moment in time for Dolls everywhere to stop what they are doing and celebrate the magic of Friendship. The Dolls have kept their relationship thriving over the past six years by practicing a little thing called compersion. Keep reading to find out what that means…
Caitlin + Dani are wearing Alexander McQueen shades from Glasses, Ltd in Chicago’s Gold Coast, LAGOS Jewelry, Heart Sweaters + Sweater Skirts from Goodnight Macaroon with Naturalizer Boots (so comfortable).
When we met (at a fire and ice party) we instantly became friends. Shortly after – we became best friends and even roommates. We were in similar spots in our lives. Two twenty-something socialites with a craving for all things beautiful in life. We are forever grateful for the magical moment in time that brought us together.
Throughout our friendship, we’ve had ups and downs. We have both evolved – and that’s part of life! While the events of our personal lives could pull us in different directions, we choose to stay by each other’s side and cheer each other on. Get ready for the secret to our friendship’s success.
We are often asked if we are ever jealous of one another. The honest answer is no… quite the opposite actually.
Compersion: The opposite of jealousy. When you feel joy for someone else’s wins, joys and successes.
Compersion is a practice that is front and center in our friendship. It is what has kept us strong over the years! Here’s how it works… When one of us has the opportunity to do something special in life, the other celebrates that! Whether it’s a wedding, a baby, a world travel excursion, a talent, a new love interest, a personal investment… even a new hairstyle. We celebrate all the wins for one another. It’s. So. Much. Fun
Once you start practicing compersion, you can step out in light and love with your best friend. This is how to stay successfully stay connected through all the twists and turns of life for years to come… That and buy each other presents!
We decided to go all out this Galentine’s Day and gift each other some designer shades. We headed to Glasses, Ltd. on Oak Street because their selection is INSANE. When we see something so nice – you know we buy it twice! There’s nothing like matching your bestie on Galentine’s Day… or every day for us.
