I know there can be disagreement within the hive and some pain point issues that always start rather heated debates. However, I find this community to be overall very supportive, kind, and helpful. If there is a bee (or 10) who has helped you, whether it be through providing advice, support, or just a laugh, call her out on this thread and say THANK YOU 🙂
I will start (in no particular order) and add more later:
@Sunfire: You always provide thoughtful, supportive advice. You really take the time to emphasize with someone’s situation and are never judgemental. Your posts are genuine and truly helpful. It feels like you care every time you post!
@Nona99: You are always hilarious, honest, and provide perspective that is easily missed when you’re tangled up in an emotional mess. I know so many people appreciate your advice, and I always get excited when I see you have responded to a thread because I know I am in for a good read.
@adoc86: You are truly inspiring. Despite the challenges you have faced, you are sweet, understanding, and forever positive. I think people can learn a lot from you and the perspective that you have gained from your life.
@badabing88: I think we were separated at birth (except you’re far prettier, lol). I always agree with your posts and I love your honesty. I have never met anyone (other than myself) who is so quick to get to the root of an issue. You do it in a funny, unapologetic, and yet caring way.
@weddingbound: My wedding inspiration! Your posts are always positive and try to build up brides who are feeling insecure. You take the time to help people, provide thoughtful advice, and tips that can be used. You always provide support to build self esteem and you do so with class!

@BoxerLady: What a nice idea for a thread! And thank you so much for your kind words.
I would like to express my appreciation for these Bees:
BoxerLady – Of course! I don’t know you well yet but I’m enjoying reading everything you post! You’re witty and intelligent and a very sweet person.
Nona99 – I love you, girl. My long lost sister! You’re beautiful, brilliant, kind, funny – there are no words. And hands-down BEST writer.
Badabing88 – Beautiful, talented, sweet. Another spiritual sister! 🙂
ThisTimeRound – So wise.
Vorpalette – We would be friends IRL, I admire you!
Gemstone – You keep it all together, thank you for being a friend and always there – for me and all of us.
Zhabeego – Another Bee I don’t know well yet, but I find myself ALWAYS agreeing with everything you say!
Deetroitwhat – The coolest Bee EVER.
Hyperventilate – So in love with your husband! I feel the same way about mine. 🙂
Jacqui90 – The sweetest Bee!
MyPinkShoes – The Bee I envy the most. Retired at a young age, beautiful and independently wealthy. Always gives wise advice!
Peachacid – So SMART!
IAreBridezilla – OMG. You are funny as hell, girl. You should be a comedian for a living, seriously.
I love all the Bees!

@BoxerLady: @Sunfire: I am having SUCH a shitty day and when I opened this it all melted away :’-) Thank you both so much, you made me a little teary :’-) Seriously, that is incredibly kind of you both…
I’m SURE I’m going to miss someone:
-BoxerLady: yes, you are spot-on, we most definitely on the same wave-length…I feel bad for the people that interact with us in real life 😉 I cannot IMAGINE if we were in the same pack…someone would get punched. You crack me up and I can always count on you to “get” me.
-Lia: sweet and funny, always makes me chuckle 🙂
-Vorpalette: she is hilarious and down-to-earth, and alot of her advice makes me take a step back and adjust my attitude.
-Sunfire: she gives such straightforward and compassionate advice and will be honest with you. I really appreciate her counseling me on spiritual matters as well 🙂 She’s someone I look up to.
-s2bmrscook: my ring twin 🙂 you have super great taste and I feel like we have alot in common 🙂
-Gemstone and Somethingaquamarine: you guys are so friendly and collected 🙂
-Hyperventilate, Zhabeego and Detroitwhat: you guys always call a spade a spade and you say what the OP (usually me) needs to hear.
Like I said, I missed SO many people, but suffice it to say I love you all and I’m thankful to “know” each of you. I dont really have relationships like this IRL, so the Bee is very valuable to me 🙂

@badabing88: Aww you’re so sweet! and I agree! I’m pretty sure we’d be bff IRL
Nona99: always makes me laugh and seems like a very genuine, no bullshit kind of woman.
HiroshymaTetrastar: I feel like we have some kind of black diamond bond! she’s basically my soul sister! Even our FH’s have the same name:)
weddingbound: She always offers such sound advice to everyone and is never condescending about it. Plus her pics offer up the best hair and makeup inspiration!
pengoala (spelling?): I always look forward to seeing what she has to say and she’s always super positive

Aww, thank you so much! That made my day 🙂
What a wonderful thread! Lets see… I haven’t had a lot of direct communication with these bees, but they have made an impression on me…
@BoxerLady: You, of course, lol. I tend to agree with most of your posts and I think the threads you start are really interesting and create positive dialogue. I think it is also really apparent that you put thought into your responses and really try to help/give the best advice you can to the OP.
Nona99: Seriously you write the funniest responses. Ever. But I also think you give amazing advice when you’re addressing a serious topic and not kidding around.
This Time Around – Even though I don’t always practice perfect etiquette, I always love when you respond to an etiquette question because I feel like you really know what you’re talking about, haha. I’m not sure if you just happen to know all these things or if you’re looking them up, but I pretty much accept all of your advice to be fact and think its really helpful.
Beachbride1216 and Hyperventilate – I almost always agree with your guys’ posts. I like that you’re honest and straight forward with the OP.
weddingbound – You are always so encouraging and positive! I think you give constructive criticism in a way that is really helpful to brides that are unsure of themselves. From your posts I think you seem like a really sweet person.
badabing88 – I love how honest you are with people, but not in an abrasive or unkind way. I also think a lot of your threads are really funny, like your nail saga or all of the threads about conversations between you and your Boyfriend or Best Friend.
