HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY!
“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.”
One couldn’t agree more with this beautiful quote from the literary legend. Everyone has friends to lean on to, during good times and bad, who will be there with you through thick and thin.
From planning homework sessions together and attending horror movie nights with popcorn, to becoming your secret-keeper and your ultimate mischief partner, your friends feature in almost all your fond memories. And we all wish that this friendship lasts forever. What better way to mark your friendship than with a unique band.
