In 2006, I took a position at a camp in Virginia.
I had been falling in and out of trouble in Los Angeles at the time, and Virginia was a much needed escape for me. Little did I know that that summer I would meet the best friend I have ever had.
Now, here we are 8 years later, and we are still as close as ever. We have been single together, gone through break-ups together, laughed together, cried together, helped out with each other’s engagements, been one another’s Maid of Honors, been through hard moves, high points, low points, in between points, and now she is helping me navigate through motherhood.
Recently, her and her husband came to visit us in Colorado. While the men went off hunting in the mountains for the weekend, the ladies (plus River) got some much needed face time.
Man how I miss her.
