I remember one time when we were just fellow blog commenters, I saw a post by Holly [similar to this one] about how she was a total dance diva and nailed it on the dance floor [with pictures and all!]
I knew at that point that she was awesome. Then, I remember sitting in a parking lot while running a work errand. I was reading Holly's post that day about life and school and careers and following your dreams. It was a pretty deep post for the usually light-hearted and upbeat Holly that I had been reading. I liked it. I commented and she wrote me back and it was the beginning of our blog best friendship.
Before I knew it, we were emailing each other, texting, and sending each other care packages full of stuff we both loved [because we are soul sisters and love the same things!] We may even dress alike... Okay, I totally copped her style here.
And then she checked in on me during my drive out here. And I knew no matter how many friends didn't show up for me throughout my twenty-something years on this Earth, all it took was a friend like Holly. I look up to her so much. I look up to her positive attitude, her desire to change this world for the better, her desire to be present and loving for those she cares about. And then she's friggin' hilarious on top of all of that. Refer back to those pictures of her above :)
Holly, you're a doll. My blog bestie. I don't know when the day will finally get here but I know we will be reunited. I say "reunited" because I feel like I've known you for years. Just move to California already ;) I'm so grateful to know someone as wonderful and funny as you!
