We forget what the Holidays are truly about, because we’re caught up in work, wrapping paper, and emotions. Sometimes, we spend too much time holiday shopping and not enough time thanking the ones we love for being a part of our lives. The beautiful people I surround myself with will always be better than my designer favorites, and egg nog. Without them, I’d be less me. Without my best friend, I’d be lost.
Gab, it feels like we met a million years ago, right? We were so young and silly. I remember the first time you came over to my old house and it was as if we had known each other forever. Nothing was ever awkward or uncomfortable with us. Of course, we have stories we will take with us to the grave (oh, the teenage years lol). Our late night talks and mixing horrible drinks led to a lifelong friendship.
Remember the wood’s party we went to, and everyone who came with us split up? I couldn’t find anyone! My dad came to get me and I was frantic, and smelling like a brewery. I looked around at the drunk idiots around me and I could hear the cop sirens. I look up and somehow you found me, despite all of the craziness…I took a deep breath, because at least my best friend was still by my side. I knew after that night we’d always be best friends. We take each other’s phone calls no matter what (and there aren’t many people I always answer for); if there’s ever an issue we solve it together. There’s never anything I can’t tell you, no matter how the words sound. What’s you is me, what’s me is you.
I could spend hours talking to you about anything and you’re always all ears. You know me insanely well and vice versa. You accept me for the crazy, adventurous, outgoing person that I am. You know my flaws and my stories. You’re the sane and rational half of me, thankfully. Someone needs to keep my head on straight 😉 We’re adults now and despite any struggles or fears, it’s less scary because we’re writing the same chapters. I can’t wait for our weddings and for our kids to grow up horseback riding together. I know our adventures are far from over, and there’s so much we have to look forward to. We will travel the world, bit by bit 🌍 We’re going to take lots of photos and dance on some tables.
Let’s beach it up in Long Beach island, and go on a DIY retreat this summer; forget about the craziness of our daily lives 😀 I love you and I missed out on having wine 🍷 with you tonight, which is a bummer. I wish you the brightest of holidays with your family. Lots of love to the fam & to Molly ❤️ Thank you for being my side kick! You’re the best and I couldn’t have asked for a better bestie. Xoxox
