17 Years of Friendship Instagram Quotes and Captions



17 years of friendship isn’t just something you call out in passing on an anniversary. It’s a journey. 17 years of memories, heartaches, laughs, endings, starting over, growing up, meeting the love of your life and starting a family.



A lot can change in 17 years, but some things will never change between you and your friend. When it comes to the special bond between friends…that is one thing that should stand the test of time.



Being able to look back on those years is a testament to just how much your friend(s) has meant to me. They may have been the best friends a person could ever ask for and you can’t thank them enough for sitting through all those slide shows, laughing at my dumb jokes and letting you be yourself.



Do you want to celebrate such a beautiful friendship on Instagram with awesome throwback photos and cute captions? Here are cute 17 years of friendship Instagram quotes and captions for your use.
