An Open Letter to My Best Friend ( On Her Birthday )

Happy birthday! It’s so hard to believe that today you turn thirty. This has been a long time coming. Hasn’t it? 😀 I know that it’s scary to step into this new phase of life (I  would be scared too) but I’m so thankful that when I step into it I will have you to go through it as much as you have me to go through it now. You are the person I turn to for absolutely everything, big or small, ugly or beautiful and that means the world to me. I’m not sure how long I could live without being able to tell someone my exact, step-by-step thought process about overthinking something that won’t be important in 2 weeks. You save me from my own insanity, and I couldn’t be more grateful. 🙂

I am so thankful for the times that we’ve been inseparable and the times that we’ve grown apart, because in the end, both taught us that we need each other in our lives. I don’t know what I would do without you, if I’m honest but I know truly that there’s so much more for us in the future my BFF.

You’re one of the best people I know to just sit down and talk to for hours over tea, or dinner, or shopping. You’re one of the best to adventure with too—even if our adventure is just going to a new part of town that we’ve never been to before or a new concert we never thought we’d go see. or sitting at the same beach front watching the moon come up or the sun set. I look forward for more adventures with you this year and many years to come.  You’re the most down to earth person I know. And I’m so thankful for that.

In your thirties, there are a lot of new opportunities that you will have. I hope that you find each and every one of them and embrace them with arms wide open. I hope that whatever your heart desires, it’ll find. I hope that you find happiness in the mundane. I hope that you find adventures everywhere you look, and that you can travel to the places that you want to see (and that I can come along most of the times hehehehe)! I hope that you’re able to go where you want to go and be who you want to be.

I remind myself that it’s okay if we don’t go out and do something, because the party is right wherever we are. we wine, laugh, gossip even cry together but alas we get up the next day with headache and smiles…and say to the new day and the beauties it will bring.

Every best friend relationship is different—they grow from being new friends, to good friends, to best friends, to basically being sisters. Every step of the way to you becoming my family has been emotional, exciting, nerve-wracking, and absolutely beautiful.

I have absolutely zero idea what I would do without you, and I have no intention of ever finding out. Sorry love, you’re sorta stuck with me, and I know we wouldn’t have it any other way. I love you, girl! Thanks for being my best friend! Here’s to many more to come!Happy Happy Birthday Princess Trisha!!
