thankful for childhood friends who turn into adult friends. close friends. best friends.
Devin and i have spent a few days a week together for the past few weeks. and we wouldn’t have it any other way. we take on the town. we listen to each other tell stories. we listen to deep life stories. we drink wine. alot of wine. we giggle and laugh hysterically. we cry. we plot. we plan. we play detective. we panic when we can’t get together soon enough. she gets me. i get her. we’ve lived parallel lives at times. we’re real friends. we stumbled into each other’s lives and became real friends.

remember THIS story? about having more than one dream where my high school crush appeared. THEN i actually saw him at a red light?
well Saturday night, our paths crossed and i couldn’t be happier. it was St. Patty’s day per green in photo. it was later in the night and my friends and i ventured into the bar that i knew he called home. sure enough… i’m at the door and find out there is a $3 cover for the band playing and i have no cash, i tell the bouncer. i hear someone (him) yell “i’ve got her!” after a few beers and the strongest hugs ever, we sat side by side until 230am talking up a storm. and just as i knew it would be, it was like no time had passed. we can pick up where we left off. and i miss the friend he was in my life. and i’m hoping to not lose that completely again. after this week of losing another high school friend in my life to death, way too soon, it makes me value the others that much more.
and so it was a night i wouldn’t trade for anything and i was school girl giddy once again. i now know there was a reason why i ventured into that bar i never go to.

happy birthday, dear friend.

today is Groundhog’s day. but it’s also one of my childhood friend’s birthdays. one of the very first friends i’ve ever had. playing in the backyard on swing sets. pretending we were Nancy Drew. imagining adventures together. creating real adventures. and just being kids.

HAPPY birthday, danielle marie. cheers to lifetime friends.

and here we are first day of kindergarten. yep…! i’m the one with the awesome purple socks. notice my matching accessories. bracelet and necklace.
