I have a friend who is amazing. Ours is the type of friendship that started (as most of my closest friendships have) with the wrong impression. I thought she was weird. Well, at the time she was. =) She thought I was stuck up. Well, I probably was. Anyway, we were both 15, so we had a lot to learn, and a long ways to grow. I am so thankful that 15 years later, we are closer than ever. We would take hour-long roadtrips in an instant to meet eachother for one afternoon. We share a love of hand-made delights, simplicity, and hot tamales. I could write pages of memories we’ve shared. Like the time I forgot that she was coming to visit me, and I wasn’t home. No one was at our house, infact, and she was forced to camp outside under a tarp for almost 24hrs and use the Burger King bathroom across the street… until I remembered that she was coming to visit me and I high-tailed it back home. She was comfortably settled under our maple tree, with a blue tarp above her. I apologized profusely, and somehow, we’re still friends.
She is also the queen of creativity and thoughtfulness. Such creativity and thoughtfulness is usually wrapped up in a fun package that finds itself in your mailbox on just the perfect day.
Yesterday was one of those days. I received a package from Sarah with the enclosed hand-made headband. It suits Betty absolutely perfectly.
Cheers to friendships that last and grow and better with time. I love you, Sarah!
