Here is a pic to help you understand. They are 8 or 4 person boats normally and you race down a river. Well this is where it all started. We met during this little sport and began a friendship that was bound to be inseparable. Little did we know that we had the same interests and were connected by mutual friends....Agriculture, Barkow, and Potter
Leo's Lodge. (I suggest anyone that travels to the Lansing area you eat there.....best food ever!!!!) You tend to form a family while in college. The people that you can always lean on and run to. These were my people. While we slaved away at college we got the bright idea to take spring break to Vegas....and that is when the traveling duo began!
In Vegas in front of Bellagio
In ChicagoWe went from Vegas to Texas. Then decided to try out Miami and many trips to Chicago. Even took sailing lessons in Chicago. It is the type of friendship that one calls the other and says lets go on vacation, we look online, find what we want, book it, inform the significant others, and off we go. We also got on a groupon kick....anything that looked interesting we tried from sailing lessons to horseback riding lessons....why not?
Celebrating graduation together
The best part about our friendship is that we maintain it states away. We can go weeks even months without talking and then when we meet up or call it is like we pick up where we left off. Sometimes you never know if people realize how much they mean to you so that is why I writing this post. I am so blessed to have such a great friend!!!
This dear friend of mine also just had an amazing event happen....SHE HAD A BABY!!!
I'm not going to lie...when she first told me she was pregnant I was extremely happy for her yet sad all at the same time. It felt like my little compadre was gone. Like I was now a lone ranger. However thankfully that was not the case. We still had adventures together and it was like nothing had changed. Now she is a mother. It is incredible how proud and excited and amazed you can be with someone! Friend you amaze me everyday and I am so happy to be able to call you a friend! I look forward to many more adventures together....with the little nugget too!
I guess this is what growing up is all about!
