Twenty-one reasons why.

5 Aug

I just got back from spending the weekend in Virginia. I went to visit my best friend Skidmore to celebrate her 21st birthday with her. Since today was her 21st birthday, I thought I’d dedicate this blog post to her. So Skidmore, here are 21 reasons why I love you (even though there are so many more):

  1. You are the truest friend I’ve ever had, and I’m so grateful every day to be able to say that I have someone like you in my life.
  2. You are the least judgemental person I know. I still remember the night at Salem when I finally opened up to you about my past. You were the first person I opened up to, and realizing in the very beginning that you would just be there to listen meant so much to me.
  3. You’re the best hugger I know. Seriously.
  4. You’ve helped me realize what it means to believe in myself. Even though I still have pretty low self-esteem, I’m working at it, and your belief in me to be who I truly am gives me strength.
  5. You love Taylor Swift and country music as much as I do. Who else can I belt out Josh Turner with?
  6. You’ve converted me into a VT Hokie football fan. No words can describe how much I love that. πŸ™‚
  7. You introduced me to Middleman, even though we haven’t watched it in forever. I still want a teddy bear suit though!
  8. You’re a kickass apparel designer. Seriously…the dresses you made for the fashion show were amazing.
  9. You have a giant Scrabble board made out of duct tape. We’ve been best friends for 5 years, and I still can’t get over your amazing duct tape skills.
  10. You’ve fully supported me while I’m working on my memoir, and I’ve loved your feedback. There’s nothing I can say to express how much it means to me that you’re invested in my writing.
  11. You have the best dog in the history of the world.
  12. You’ve helped me develop a sense of style, and for the first time ever, I actually really love shopping for clothes. Who ever thought that day would come?
  13. You love Jodi Picoult as much as me. One of these days we’ve got to go to one of her book signings.
  14. You’ve made me see that true friendship can’t be broken by something as simple as distance.
  15. You’ve helped me realize that I can literally talk to you aboutΒ anything, and that means so much to me.
  16. You introduced me to foot massagers and back massagers. They’ve changed my life.
  17. You are an example of a true Salem sister. I’m so glad that Salem brought us together, but more than that, I’m glad that we have proved that true Salem bonds can never be broken.
  18. You’re probably the most unique person I know. Actually, I take that back…you are the most unique person I know.
  19. You introduced me to Sid, who is an amazing photographer and took some great pictures during my first photoshoot.
  20. You introduced me to V8 Fusion. My life will never be the same.
  21. You are the most amazing best friend I’ve ever had, and I’m so happy that I get to say that you’ve been in my life for the past 5 years. I wouldn’t be who I am today without you, and I love you so much!
