One of my oldest friends Lauren & her girlfriend Ang came all the way from Ohio to visit this week. This lady has been my pen pal for 12 years, since freshman year of high school when she stayed with my family for a weekend. We exchanged addresses and that was that, now she knows more about me than almost anyone, she has supported me and encouraged me for 12 years. She has believed in me in a way I've felt from very few people and she has always been on my side. We don't email, rarely talk on the phone instead its pages of letters on fluorescent paper, stickers, random doodles and life that we mail back and forth to one another. I'm so grateful for this awesome woman and now she's here for the week! I haven't seen her for at least 6 years in person so it rocks!
