Monday Nights Are Family Game Nights, So Monday Nights Are My Favorites

I wouldn't dare miss a Monday.


My entire life, I have lived a three-minute walk from my grandma's house. That doesn't mean that I always saw my grandparents, though. In fact, as I grew older and became busier, I saw less and less of them.

So, last summer, I decided Monday nights would become game nights with my grandma and cousins.

And let me tell you, they're now my favorite nights of the week. I love getting to spend time with my family. We play some board games, eat some dessert and just talk about our week. They are memories that I will hold dearly.

My grandparents won't be here forever. I am heading off to college soon, and I won't always be a three-minute walk from their house. My cousins are getting married and starting lives of their own. We are all growing up, and life is flying by.

Monday nights are a time when we can all come together and make new memories. I love Mondays.

And when life blows by (like it does), and one day my grandparents are no longer with us, I will look back at Monday game nights and smile because of the time I got to cherish with them. I will look back at living only three minutes away and be thankful that I was able to create such a loving relationship.

I would not be who I am without my grandparents. They have shown me a love that I know some of my friends don't receive from their grandparents. I am forever grateful that I can call my grandparents some of my best friends.

I have loved spending every Monday night for the past year making memories with my family.

For The Best Friend Who's In It For The Long Run

This is as cheesy as the title comes off to be.


Dear Best Friend,

Thank you for always being there. I have lost many best friends in the past simply because the universe had you for me. You and everyone reading this knows who you are. Other best friends made me laugh, but you were the only one that stayed and dealt with my bullshit for the long run.

You didn't move away or find new friends. Even when we did move away to different colleges and found new friends, our connection never broke. We'd always come back to each other and fall right back where we left off. I'd drop you off at your house, and we'd end up talking and catching each other up on our lives. My mom would call me worried because she didn't know where I was. Thank you for being supportive of my dreams. I don't get to see you very often, and I wish our schedules allowed us to be together more, but whenever we hang out, it never changes between us.

You were there when my first dog, Wylie, died, even though he growled at you when he stepped on your art project. You were there when I called you crying on the phone cause of boy troubles.

You were there when I blew up a bottle of suicide sauce while eating at Bajas.

You laugh at me and with me, and I couldn't have asked for a better friend than you. I love everyone in my life, and all of the people that I have met and come across are amazing and loving souls, but you are one of the big blessings in my life.

You were the first to stay and make a mark in my life.

Thanks, Analise, I love you, bitch.
