Friendship Friday

This week I dedicate my Friendship Friday to my "Little Sister" from my sorority. I knew from the moment that I met Liz that we were going to be BFF, and she just had to be my "Little Sister". I had some of the best times of my life when we were in college together. We have traveled together- Spring Break in Key West, Spring Break cruise to the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, visits to see her in Virginia, she came home with me to Illinois for my college graduation party and we almost went on a extended trip through Europe after she graduated from college. How could she have possibly chosen furniture over a Europe trip? Always the practical one, she is. It might have been for the best, though, because we did not have the best of luck when we traveled together. After a broken down rental car, her car being broken into and all of our clothes stolen the night before our cruise, lost luggage, unexpected expensive travel bills, hurricane, etc. , we decided that maybe we just shouldn't travel together anymore. We developed a bond that has withstood many moves and many states. Life gets busy, and sometimes time has gotten away from us without being in touch. What I love about Liz, though, is that we can always pick back up like no time has passed. I love to have in depth conversations with her because she always gives me her complete attention and listens to every word that I have to say. She will tell me how she really feels about something too. That's a good thing. We have been in each other's weddings. I was the one she chose to stand up with her in the middle of a hurricane in Florida!!! I want her to know that I was honored beyond belief that she would choose me!!! She even paid for my bridesmaid dress. (When you have been in 20 weddings, that is huge because it does get very expensive) She is always so thoughtful, and sends a card for everything. If I have been going through a rough time, I can always depend on receiving a card in the mail from her. She even sends cards to my parents. That's a good friend. She has the best laugh- big belly laugh that takes over her whole body. I love that about her. Liz is a kind, sincere, thoughtful, beautiful person inside and out. I am so blessed to have her in my life. Love you Liz!!!

Happy Birthday!
Glad you clarified that was your little sister from sorority. Otherwise, people might think you were biological sisters! Other bloggers I know have not clarified it so much which led to confusion on our part. How nice to be able to get together and enjoy each others company!
