Ok, so I've totally been slacking on blogging. Live got way to busy with work and the holidays, but hopefully I'm back :-)

I had an awesome day today...I got to catch up with my best friend! When we graduated high school she joined the army and was set to be stationed in Germany. Well a few months later 9-11 happened and she was whisked off to Iraq. Over the next 3 years or so I saw her maybe 2 or 3 times. When her 4 years of active service was up she came home to Lancaster. I was caught up in finishing school and my life here and didn't see her as much as I would have liked. Especially when I found out that she had to go back to Iraq. Luckily she finished her time over there less than a week before my wedding and was able to attend :-) That was in July, in November she told me she was moving to Colorado to be with her boyfriend. I hadn't seen her since then until today.

That's one of the things I love about our friendship. It's been 7 1/2 years since we've seen each other almost everyday. 7 1/2 years since we made Turkey Hill runs after soccer practice/games. 7 1/2 years since we took turns driving to church Sunday mornings or youth group game nights. 7 1/2 years since we talked about our first loves and how our lives will be when we grow up. 7 1/2 years since nothing has changed between us. We still are (and always will be) cheeks (chicas).

Sure plenty of things have changed. We've grown up, became women somewhere along the way. Have our own busy lives, and new friends. Live in different states thousands of miles apart. But when we get together it's like none of that matters.
