One of the best things about being a woman, if you ask me, is the friendships. Those friendships in which you are secure- where you don’t have to talk everyday. Where you know you both still love each other, and will be there when the other one needs you to be. The friendships which may live a thousand (or more) miles away, or you might be right up the street. Friendships where you can both say what is on your mind, and share life with each other. I have several of those and I cherish each and everyone one of you!
On Friday I got to see one of my friends who is just that- my friend Ali. You see, Ali and I have known each other for almost 20 years- I think about 18- or at least since the 8th grade. And I haven’t seen her in 8 years. EIGHT. Oh we keep in touch via Facebook, and Twitter but seems like we’ve just missed each other the past few times she’s been home because Texas is where she grew up too. She lives in Cali now, so she’s referred to as Ali from Cali. I’m so funny. You can stop laughing now!
Anyway, here’s the evidence (and I should tell you- she looks amazing- she’s had a baby even!):
Part of me wants to hate her. But I can’t!
I had fun, and I hope I don’t have to go another 8 years before I see her again.
