Just 11 days ago, one of my best friends growing up got married.
She is my oldest and closest friend yet to get married and I really couldn’t be more excited.
Brittany met Eric just a mere month after Andy and I got married, so for the past 5 years I have been waiting for her to join me in wedded bliss!
So that morning on November 3rd, Brittany turned to me and quietly, but excitedly, says “I’m getting married today.”
At her saying that, a billion memories and emotions hit me all at once leaving my breathlessly happy for my friend to marry her prince.
I couldn’t have been happier to join Brittany as she walked from our hotel room—where she prepared for the greatest day of her life—to get in the limo that was whisking us away to the wedding ceremony, where she would be becoming one with her love. I couldn’t be happier to stand up with Brittany as she declared her unconditional love for Eric. And I couldn’t be happier as I thought of the amazing life they were about to embark on, together, as one.
It’s in those small little moments that I feel the importance of our friendship, and in almost 20 years, through many ups and downs, our friendship is stronger than ever.
P.S. Here’s one of the oldest photos I have of us on our last day of eighth grade. Brittany, be thankful that I don’t have access to the awkward hoards of Girl Scout photos. 🙂
