Friends are a dime a dozen, but a genuine best friend is a rare find. The best way I can describe my bestie is that she is my missing puzzle piece. I don't know what I would do without her by my side at all times. Even when we're not together, I'm texting her constantly, so with National Best Friends Day coming up on June 8, it's the perfect time to show your appreciation to yours by posting a sweet Instagram pic with one of these best friend quotes.
You might even want to send her a hand written card telling her all of the reasons why you love her, and include some words of wisdom about the power of a great friendship. Plan out a besties-only day of going to your favorite restaurants, watching your fave movie, and serving up some BFF cocktails (if you're 21 and up). There's truly no one else in the world who makes you laugh so hard you could cry, and understands you even when you're making absolutely no sense, so you want to show her how much you care.
I'm sure picking out the perfect bestie pic will be difficult enough for the 'Gram — because you have so many good ones — so make the posting process easier by using one of these 20 quotes as your caption. Happy National Best Friends Day to you and your person.
