I guess that it's definitely safe to say that my friends are all over the USA. I really don't have all that many friends that live close, and the ones that do live close I rarely see.
So with that said, today I'm focusing on one of my best friends - Sarah. She and I have known each other since I was 13 and she was 16, I believe. We met on HSB - because, you know, that's the most awesome place to meet ever! - and have kept in contact ever since. That means we've been friends for over 6 years! Wow, crazy!
Despite the age difference - although not great, we're in very different stages of life - I have always felt like we were kindred spirits, so to speak. We can talk about just about anything, and I always felt I could open up to her.
She now is married and has a beautiful baby girl that she and I joke is my "niece". I can only hope that someday I meet this girl and can give her a big ol' hug.
I know that Sarah and I will be friends for a very long time, and I can't wait to see what is next for our friendship. :D
Mostly, I wish that I had a picture of the two of us together, but I know in my heart that someday we will! :) Someday, for sure.
