Picture this last night:
the light are out.
Ray is 30 seconds away from falling asleep.
Laura yells “OH MY GOSH.”
Ray jolts in natural defense while thinking we’re being attacked
“TOMORROW IS MINE AND ANNALEE’S FRIENDAVERSARY!”
He’s used to Annalee and I flipping out over random crap.
He congratulates me, rolls over. Falls back asleep.
BUT FOR REAL. Today is THE DAY in HISTORY when I MET MY BEST FRIEND.
Not just one of those “oh hey let’s be best friends for 2 years then stop talking” best friends. I’m talking about a legitimate best friend forever. If you’re more familiar with playground slang that’s BFF4Ls. Or something like that.
she makes me laugh.
According to the Urban Dictionary, a friendaversary is only legit if you know the date you met. Good thing we’ve got Facebook to keep us straight.
and so it begins.
YALL – She is top of the line best friend. You can’t ask for a better one. I don’t even need to explain her awesomeness to you because the joy on our faces shows it.
Words can not express how thankful I am for her. From college, to our first jobs, to engagement, to my wedding… she is my rock.
She was the first phone call on January 8th,
The first hug as an official alumnas of Virginia Tech,
She held me when I collapsed on August 11,
She took care of logistics while I danced the night away as Mrs.
She is the best there is, folks.
She loves sand
I love hills
She loves oceans
I love rivers
She loves an endless blue horizon
I love towering mountains of green, red, orange, and yellow
We both love God, laughing, music, our men,
She’s my rock, my joy, my comfort, my constant.
Here’s to you, leebee. ♥
