To My Best Friend on Her 26Th Birthday,
I can hardly believe it has been 7 years since the first time I came to visit at State and we became instant friends. Since that weekend, we have been pretty inseparable. I used to look forward to you coming home for a weekend or a holiday and of course a good trip to Raleigh to visit you. We have had some really good times.
In case I don’t tell you enough, you have been an amazing friend to me. I am grateful for you every day. You have laughed with me, cried with me and laughed until we cried with me. You were the first person I called when I found out I was pregnant and luckily you were in the car behind me when I got engaged. You stood next to me on wedding day and you have done nothing but cheer me on all these years and I thank you so much for that. It’s nice to know I always have you on my side. As the years have gone on, you not only have grown as my friend but as an extension as my family. Aidan’s Aunt Amanda and Adam’s second wife. Ha ha ha!
You are an amazing, beautiful, strong, independent person and I thank you for being my friend. Thank you for at times being my savior. Thank you for keeping secrets. Thank you for being like a sister. I love you so much and I don’t know what I would do without you. I am so, so, so lucky to have you in my life. Cheers to you on your 26Th, I can’t wait to be an old lady with you!!! Happy Birthday!!!
And what's a good blog post without a little photo montage of our good times...
