To My Best Friend on her last day in Orlando,
It’s hard for me to imagine you being more than a 5-minute drive away. I can’t believe how quickly these last few months have passed. It literally feels like yesterday that you were telling me your plans to quit your job, move away, and follow your dreams… something we’ve been talking about for years. And just like that, it’s here. I’ll never be able to express, in the way it deserves, how proud I am of you. You’re doing something that most people spend their whole lives being too afraid of. You’re staying true to yourself and placing all of your bets on you. But nevertheless, I’ll miss you an insane amount.
We’ve been on quite the journey together over the past 6 years. Starting with sorority rush, to becoming roommates, to traveling adventures, 6am rides to Queens, becoming pet parents (twice), the infamous cruise, themed parties, Friendsgiving, all of the concerts, shows and movie nights, graduation, first jobs, being broke, Script & Song, all of the sleepovers and nights out in-between, and to becoming family.
You’ve gotten me through some of the hardest times of my life, related completely when anxiety became too much, laughed with me, cried with me, and laughed until we cried. You’ve become a constant in my life and Orlando is going to feel a little less like home without you.
Go show ‘em what you’re made of and I’ll start the countdown until our next reunion.
Love you so much!
