house guest

this week my bestest friend in the whole wide world is in town. this makes me VERY happy to say the least. you see, she lives in CT, so we don't get to see each other very often, but when we do, we have a blast. we always make plans to do a ton of stuff, but usually never get around to doing all of it...or any of it, but still manage to have a great time. the first few days she was in town, she stayed with her brother while she was studying for her board exams and took them over the weekend. then on monday night she came over for a home cooked meal (with yummy wine in hand) and a slumber party! it felt so good to have her here.

yesterday evening she left to take a little road trip to visit a school she's been thinking about attending. which would mean that she would live in the same state as me. which would make me so very happy. she's coming back tomorrow afternoon and i can't wait to discuss all the details of her trip and plan the next phase of her life with her. she deserves this more than anything and i'm so proud of her for taking this next step with such courage. this photo explains how i feel. :)
