We've known each other since my first semester in college, September 2007. We met in a computer class that we later named "Myspace 101". Facebook wasn't "it" just yet.
I'd like to think we hit it off right away. We both arrived early and had to wait outside the class to head in. It was there that we struck up our first conversation. We naturally sat beside each other and the friendship grew.
I remember when we had yet to hang out outside of school and I brought in Josh's one year anniversary gift to show here, a scrapbook. She loved it, a little too much. haha! She ended up commenting something on my myspace about the scrapbook and I had to take it down before Josh would see. We still laugh about that.
I'm trying to remember our "first time" hangout. Oh! I think I remember..she invited me to go Christmas shopping with her and her daughter, Alyssa at Pittsburgh Mills. Man, that was fun. That was the first time I met Alyssa too. What a little sweet heart, I just love that little girl!
We eventually got in the habit of going on a weekly outing. We ate at so many different restaurants and saw so many different movies. This one time we wanted to see Juno in theaters and it was all sold out so we punched in her gps for another location, we had to have drove at least 40 minutes out of the way to this random, hidden movie theater where we finally got to see Juno. It was such a great "adventure".
That's just it though, there's always something with us and I just love it. We've had SO many great memories and I really wish she lived closer, I definitely don't get to see her enough. She is one of my best friends and we make it work. She's visited us here and I/we try to visit on occasion when were up there. She even came out for my sisters 21st Bday.
So yeah. She asked me something yesterday that just really made me happy to be her friend and to know she loves me and thinks very highly of me as her friend. I know she will always be there for me and of course I am there for her in return.
I love you girl!
