A couple years ago when we were in the process of switching churches, I met Nichole.
She and I hit it off right away - being very similar in both our mannerisms and the things that we like and dislike.
She and I become great friends over the last few years, going through many things at the same times --- including some problems, trials and some great times.
I have always felt like I could talk to Nicky about anything --- guys, friend problems, things going on in my life. Somehow she has always been someone that I could easily open up to, and I think she feels the same way about me. ;)
In the end of August, Nicky left for college - a college over 6 hours away. I miss my friend that I went shopping with, went to the movies with, had sleepovers with, talked to all the time. But I also know that this is another step in her life, and we're going to stay friends throughout the whole thing.
We've talked on the phone a few times since she's been gone, and it's like nothing has changed --- we were able to talk about our lives as if she wasn't even gone. But Thanksgiving is coming FAST, and I can't wait to see my best friend!
God definitely knows what he's doing when he brings friends into your life. At the time I met Nicky, I hadn't had many friends that lived close to me --- most of them lived in different states, and then he gave me Nicky. And although she now lives in a different state, I was so glad to have her close, and I'm anxiously awaiting her times homes from college.
And, although I know I have no say in this, I hope that she decides to stay home from college next year. ;) I just miss my buddy. :)
I love you, Nicky!

My mom has decided to start a meme over on her blog all about our friends! I haven't posted on my blog in a while, but I decided this was a great reason to start back up, since I have so many great friends that I should be bragging about!
So, without further ado, I'd like to introduce you to one of my best friends, Samantha.
I met Sam in 2007, via HomeschoolBlogger. Those were the good old days --- when HSB was the place to blog for homeschoolers, and everyone hung out there all the time, writing blog posts and keeping up with great friends! I met a lot of people that I am STILL awesome friends with (probably will be posting about them later on.)
Sam and I met exactly five years ago, almost to the day, and we've been great friends ever since. We talked on HSB for a while, then started instant messaging, then talking on the phone. I don't know what I would have done without her friendship over the last couple of years.
We met for the first time at the New York LEAH convention in 2009. Mom and I were there in a homeschool booth and she came to meet me. :) We've seen each other four times since then, and this year she's been going to college about 2 1/2 hours from me!
Sam was actually supposed to be coming to my house this weekend for a visit, but ended up being sick and wasn't able to come after all. :(
One of the thing that I love most about Sam (I call her Sammers), is that we can be crazy together and think nothing of it. We can talk, laugh, do crazy things, and we know that the other won't be like, 'what the heck did she just do'?
With 5 years of being friends, I can't wait for another 5!
