I am thankful for friends – new friends, old friends, close friends, friends who are far away friends who are literally across the living room. Today I’m especially thankful for Stevie, one of my first good college friends — we met freshman year, look how young we are! We were babies!! — and someone with whom I am so grateful to be traveling this journey of engagement with. We can rejoice and commiserate in the joys and trials of planning for weddings and planning for marriage, and I’m so thankful to have a friend like her to grow with. Plus, we stay up talking and cooking random things and playing with the pup instead of doing homework — and this alternative is always much more fun. To my other sweet friends that I’ve come across today, thank you for being a part of my life. You are so precious to me.
