Dear Britt, Brent, George, Louie Mammoth, Jennica’s Worst Enemy, (and the most important title) “Bri’s Best Friend in the actual whole world”,
I love August 21st for the sole reason that a Queen was born today, so Happy flipping, fetching, BIRTHDAY! Lucky for you, I’m really good friends with T Swift. I pulled some strings and I got her to write you a song for your special day! I don’t know about you, but YOU’RE 22! I love you! And anyone that can put up with me and never leave my side deserves a gold medal! In all honesty Britt, I just love you so much! I don’t even know where to begin, I could thank you, but the list of things to be grateful for would go on forever, as would the list of good qualities. You truly are the definition of a good friend and I can’t even begin to think where I would be without you. You have changed my life in more ways than I can even imagine. So for this letter I wanted to thank you for 3 life changing lessons that you have taught me.
True Friendship: You’ve shown me what a true friend actually means! Or maybe what an identical twin with telepathy would be like.. We are literally the same person- you’re hungry when I’m hungry, you’re tired when I’m tired, you have to pee when I have to pee! I thought I knew what a true friend was, until we became friends a year and a half ago. All my life I have been blessed with kind, amazing, people, but to have someone you can literally share your entire world with, is nothing short of a miracle. My life has been completely changed by your kindness, your love, and your ability to eat as much Froyo as I do! True friends make time for each other- no matter where we are in the world I know you’ll be FaceTiming, calling, texting, emailing, or writing me a letter.. at least once an hour! You are such an example to me and if I could be half the friend that you are I would consider that a huge accomplishment!
Trust: Honestly I had lost hope in humanity before I met you. I had known too many egotistical, “always looking out for number one” types of people. The kind that would use your struggles, hardships, and weakness, as brunch conversation with the girls. I was hard to get to know. You have the type of personality that anyone can open up to. You know every detail of my life- the good the bad and the mental! And you would stand by me and keep a secret if your life depended on it. To be able to trust someone and then to still be loved unconditionally? That feeling in itself, has changed my life. I can open up to people I have just met because I know now, that I am enough. My confidence has sky rocketed because of you, your example, and love towards me.
Courage: I literally would not be where I am without you, I frankly don’t know where I would be! To find someone that shares the same dreams as you, can only give you both the courage to accomplish them, and that’s what you’ve done for me. You helped me to realize my potential. I could have never dropped out of school to move across the world, and start my own business, without you! You have given me the courage to take my life into my own hands, by creating a life I am excited to live. You literally changed the course of my life and I am forever grateful to you because of it.
I’m sorry, this is so mushy! But how do you thank your Adele Karaoke Duet Partner properly? I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for you! Thanks for always driving the Vespa- because we would be dead if I ever tried. Thanks for always taking 1,000 pictures of me because I’m insecure and need a ton of options to choose from. Thanks for the cookie dough movie nights, laughing at random words we make up, and skinny dipping in as many countries as we can! Thanks for the late night talks, the car rides, the therapy sessions, and the love! I thank God for you everyday and I’m just so grateful you are my best friend. Happy 22nd Birthday Britt! Have the best one yet! I love youuuu!
