There are big ships, and there are small ships

but the best ships... are friendships.

Readers (all 5 of you), I want you to meet my best friend, Anna.

7th grade Anna is my favorite.

Before I let her bask in all of her gloriousness, I want to take you through a little timeline of our friendship.

Starting with this night:

We had never really hung out prior to this night. It was fun, but things went downhill very quickly. Our friend got entirely too drunk + angry (drangry?) while we were at some stupid party. It got so bad, we locked ourselves in a bathroom for a few hours to avoid her and became instant BFF's. I'd probably consider that a defining moment in our friendship. A building block, if you will. The next day we spotted Jesse McCartney in a limo--another defining moment.

A month or so later, we moved in together.

Actually, reading that, you'd think she became my girlfriend. LOL oops, no. The previously mentioned drangry girl was a mutual friend and she needed roommates for that year, so Anna and I (and Em and Kait) agreed to live with together, though we didn't all know each other. At the time, Anna was dating a guy named Blake, so they set me and Thomas up. We double-dated all the time and it was sUpEr FuN! But then they dumped us. That's ok, we kept having fun anyways!

That year of living together was so awesome. I wish I could re-live it. We had so many great memories:

We may or may not own two pairs of matching pajamas.

And those pictures barely skim the surface of all the great times we had. I never expected that year living together would create such a beautiful friendship. Somewhere between building forts, going to frat parties, listening to each other cry, making each other laugh so hard we cry, dealing with family problems, and lounging around watching Weeds, we built a bond that will never be broken. 

Now that you've seen a cute selection of pics of Anna and me, here are some of my favorite solo shots of her:

Turns out Anna doesn't think a surprise chloraseptic spray is funny.

 (see above)

Sadly, we don't live together anymore. I miss her so much :( Sometimes I just need to go lay in her bed and talk about life. The good news is that the both of us are glued to our iPhones and still talk daily. 

We have conversations like this on the reg:

We wanna be reality TV stars.

As we've gotten older, our friendship looks a little like this:

Obviously, a lot's changed.

I am so blessed to have her in my life. Anna, thank you for being you. You are such a great friend and deserve everything in the world and more. I looooove you!


  1. laughed out loud at the chloroseptic picture. and the cornrows are terribly thuggish- impressive! Can't wait to meet her. Glad you have such good friends!

    1. Lol.. yeah, she didn't like the numbing of the face feeling that came with the surprise spray. Whoops!
