Big,

It goes without saying that our relationship is one of a kind. Our frightening similarities have resulted in an unshakable bond between us; a connection so strong that everyone can see it. From the moment we met, I knew that you would be a very special person in my life, and I am so fortunate to call you my big.

A Big Little relationship goes beyond the countless, beautiful handmade crafts you made or the times you picked up the tab for coffee. It is more than stitched letter shirts and hitching rides to class; more than sappy sorority photos or wooden paddles. You make me the happiest little in the world because you are you.

We have a connection that sets us apart from being just “regular friends.”

You are my confidant, idol, and the big sister I never had all in one. You made me “your child” and took me under your wing, and I am forever grateful you did. There is no one else I’d rather eat sushi and laugh endlessly with.

Big, I wish you could see yourself the way that I see you. You are strong and resilient, in spite of the obstacles you have encountered. You are full of passion, driven, and extraordinarily talented. You have the kindest, most beautiful soul and a radiant presence. You have the coolest sense of style and the best taste in music. You always remain modest and humble, despite your amazing accomplishments. There are so few people that I admire the way that I admire you. I will never stop bragging about how awesome you are, because you are truly perfect in my eyes.

I mean it when I say I admire you.

Thank you for making me feel special every single day with your loving texts. Thank you for spoiling me endlessly with surprises and little gifts. Thank you for being my biggest supporter, my mentor, and my best friend. Thank you for always looking out for me (especially that time that I tripped and skinned my knee) but also being the one to make bad decisions with me. Thank you for comforting me in times of sadness and being there for me when I need you most. I can never thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me and impacting me in the most wonderful way.

When I take a little of my own, I can only hope that the bond we share is half as strong as ours. I know that I will be nothing short of an excellent big, all because you’ve set such a wonderful example and high standard for me.

No matter what, you are my big for life and I will always be your little nugget.

Love Always,

Your Little
