When you're the best of friends...

I consider myself to be a pretty lucky girl. I work with some fabulous people. I married into a big and wonderful family (that makes delicious meals and is always down for cocktails). And my husband is, as cliche as it is, my best friend, and definitely my better half.

(he's so cute.. I'm a lucky, lucky girl!)

But I have another half..... a third? I guess I'm broken up into thirds. I refer to her as the wife, since we always seem to be on the same page, even though we live 1200 miles away (I don't wanna talk about it).
(Look how pretty she is!!)

Katy and started out as a rather unlikely duo. I would see her as I was chain smoking cigarettes (ohhh, the intelligent college decisions...) and she would be coming back from an ass-kicking work out in the pool. She'd wave politely, because I'd probably be smiling at her like an idiot, and we carried on our way. It wasn't until we realized that we both believed Madonna's "Immaculate Collection" to be musical genius in the lobby of Rhodes hall one day that maybe we had some things in common. So we went out to buy jellybeans (in bulk, of course), rocked out to Madge, and in doing so, started this unbelievable friendship that we have now.

In our years of friendship, we have gone through ups and downs, relationships, graduations, engagements, weddings, family additions (of the four legged variety :) ) and lots and lots of cheesecakes and pizzas. I consider myself to be INCREDIBLY blessed to have such an amazing friend that I can call on anytime. No matter how wenchy I am, she never judges me. No matter what off-color remark I have, she'll never tell me I'm rude. Idk how we always wind up so completely on the same page, but we do. And it's that kind of friendship that makes me a lucky lucky girl- even if she is forever away.

Happy Sunday, my friends! I hope everyone is able to reflect on and be thankful for the strong, positive people that you have in your lives!
