Proof of her loyal involvement in local philanthropy– signing the DPC Beam for the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Orlando.
I’d be lying if I said that I’m not heartbroken, and although we’ll always be sisters, not having her 5 minutes away will be a trial in itself. I’m a firm believer that as every door closes, another one opens, and maybe my next open door will lead me somewhere meaningful, too. I’m only 25, and I know I have the world at my fingertips. It’s all about building up the courage to enter into unknown waters, which is everywhere for me (born and raised in Orlando– yes, we do exist). Plus, now I have an excuse to visit The Capital every few weeks.
During one of our 30508046 sleepovers this past year, S came across an article (“22 Ways Your Best Friend is Actually Your Significant Other“) on how to decipher if your friendship is actually a stronger bond than your romantic relationships. I’m proud to that say that we are officially a fr-ouple, placing much higher importance over each other than on any of our significant others, with the number one indicator being the amount of pictures we take together. Observe. This is 8+ years of history, y’all (note: blonde hair purposefully omitted).
These are some of my favorite S&S memories, ranging from spontaneous New Years Eve plans in Atlanta, GA to making it on the Ch. 9 News for no explicable reason. Unfortunately, PicMonkey wouldn’t let me create a 200×200 picture grid to display (what.the.heck.?) to fully capture our near decade of friendship. S, you are and forever will be my sister, and I love you to death. Now leave me to listen to Spice Girls’ “Goodbye” on repeat and watch The Office Season 2 alone in bed. I’ll be in hibernation mode for the next few weeks. Sorry I’m not sorry.
