Throughout life you encounter friends that will last a lifetime, from elementary school to high school and everywhere in between. They've shaped who I am and they'll always be my forever friends. No matter the time or place, I know they'll always be there for me whenever I need them, and that's what makes them so special.
To My Forever Friends,
As we part in a little over a month, I find myself thinking about all the adventures, late nights, and memories we've made together. Whether you were a childhood friend or my best friend in high school, you'll always be my forevers. Growing up was a lot easier with you guys by my side, and your family became my second family real quick. I was able to gossip about all the exciting times throughout high school and a slew of firsts became that much more exciting. Proms became a full day event; tanning, hair, makeup, and dress up, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Having you guys by my side helped me through life's roller coasters and abrupt roadblocks. You picked me up off the ground when I needed it and never failed to brighten spirits in minutes... Thank you
From crazy road trips to ballet auditions, to summer programs, to shopping sprees, and everything in between you guys have been the greatest influences in my life. You are all role models to me in a numerous amount of ways. I've looked up to you for advice on everything from tests, to how to correctly tie a point shoe, to makeup, to even something as small as which lipgloss goes with which outfit. I've seen some as a brother figure I never had, I've seen some as a sister I never had, and I wouldn't have wanted to grow up any other way. I can't believe how far we've all come and how we've managed to stick through everything, our friendships must have just come with a lifetime warranty. They always say you find your bridesmaids in your first year of college, but I think I already found half of them throughout my childhood.
Some say distance makes the heart grow fonder, so I hope that throughout our college years our vacations back home bring us right where we left off, maybe even closer. You are family, the kind of family where even though you're not blood-related my kids will still call you their own aunt or uncle. Your family dinners, and our adventurous drives out on the town with the windows down and country blasting will be missed. If one thing is true, though, you'll always find your way back home to the people you love most; next summer is already awaiting our arrivals!
I'm sad to see all of us part, but I'll hold all of you close to my heart, no matter where life takes us. Snapchat streaks will always remain, and Facetime will be receiving way more use than ever before. I love you guys so much for making my childhood and transition into adulthood one to put in the books. I'll love you forever and always to infinity and beyond.
Your Forever Friend
