An Open Letter To My Besties For The Resties

An Open Letter To My Besties For The Resties

Thanks for being my forever friends.


To the girls who never fail to make me laugh,

Thank you, thank you so much for coming into my life and being such positive little lights every single day. I don't think there is a day that goes by that you guys don't make me laugh at anything and everything. You guys are like, the nice girls.

Coming to college is super scary, I mean how the heck are you supposed to leave your friend group from basically middle school and meet new people? Something I used to be so scared of, but now I realize how silly I was to be scared of meeting you people!! You make going home from break a little sad, which is the best way to be. Because of our friend group, I truly have homes in two different places. You have filled my life with joy, laughter, and Peter Kavinsky.

They always say you meet your lifelong friends in college and then you always hear of people talking about their college days and their college friends. I am so, so, so thankful I have you people as my college friends I get to show off to my future children. We can grow old and force our children to be besties and then tell them about all of our wild cheerleading stunts and trips to Wawa for our special chips. I could not have imagined meeting any kinder, funny, and perfect people than you perfect people.

I love our trips to the SPCA to pet puppies instead of doing our work, our wine nights that turn into cheerleading stunt practice, and of course, Peter Kavinsky. Whenever we are together, it is non stop laughing, and we talk about things other than other people, what a concept. You are the nicest and sweetest people I have ever met, and have taught me what genuine friendship feels like. I truly can not thank you enough for all of the positive energy you have put into my life, which is something I will never ever forget.

Not only do you always put a smile on my face whenever we are together, your never-ending support and motivation never go unnoticed. I am so grateful to have such amazing friends who were literally, always there, with kind words or GIFs of puppies, you do it all. You know when I am going into hard tests and send me motivation, or you know when I will have a long day and inevitably forget to eat so you will surprise me with a snack. You are there for me through anything and everything and supply a lot of positivity, good vibes, and most importantly the dog memes.

I am so freaking happy that I met my forever friends and that you people are those forever friends. I could not ask for any better and kinder people in my life. I can't wait for more of our crumb cake, nights out that really just turn into us taking way too long getting ready because we can't keep it together and then inevitably just giving up and watching Peter Kavinsky.

Cheers to all the fun we haven't had yet!

An Open Letter To My Unexpected Best Friend

You came out of nowhere and changed my life for the better.

“It’s so amazing when someone comes to your life and you expect nothing out of it but suddenly there right in front of you is everything you ever need.”


Dear Unexpected Best Friend,

You were the person I never thought I would speak to and now you are my very best friend. You came out of nowhere and changed my life for the better. I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done to shape me into the person I am today. You’ve taught me what it means to be selfless, caring, patient, and more importantly adventurous.

You don’t realize how much better my life has become and all because you came out of nowhere. I didn’t see you coming. I just saw you on occasion, and now I can’t see my life without you in it. It’s funny how life works itself out like that. Our unexpected friendship filled a hole in my life that I didn’t know existed.

I don’t even remember what life was like before you came along; it most likely had a lot less laughter and spontaneity than it does today. I can call you about anything and you would drop whatever you're doing to help me in any situation. You know when I need encouragement. You know when I am at my best and when I am at my worst. You always know exactly what to say.

I couldn’t have found a better friend than you if I tried. We balance each other out in the best way possible. You are most definitely the ying to my yang, and I don’t care how cliché that sounds. Because of you, I’ve learned to stop caring what people think and to do my own thing regardless of any backlash I might receive. You are my very favorite part of what makes me who I am to this day.

It’s as if I wished up a best friend, and poof—you appeared right in front of me. I am so beyond blessed to have you and I wouldn’t trade the world for all our memories. Thanks for coming out of nowhere.

Love you forever and a day.

To The People I Could Never Live Without

You always did your very best to support me and loved me every step of the way.


Mom, over the years we have grown and developed our relationship beyond what we thought it would ever be. You know I have always been an independent soul, ready to go off on my own from a young age without a single care in the world. As you also know, I am very stubborn and want to do things my own way. Always have, probably always will.

I wanted to thank you for taking such care of me for as long as you did. Knowing you were on your own for the most part, well until Derrick came along. You always did your very best to support me and loved me every step of the way. I still remember you calling me pudding pop for as long as I can remember. I never knew where it came from, but I loved hearing it. Growing up and going through puberty caused a lot of fights for us. You were trying to teach me and make me understand the mistakes I was so hellbent on making for myself. I want you to know that I have always loved you and always will.

Derrick, I honestly can't remember a time when you weren't in my life. You have always been there to support me and cheer me on. You'd pull my baby teeth out when I was too scared to do it myself. You would trick me into thinking I was late for school on Saturday. You watch scary movies with me because I won't watch them alone. We have so many TV series that we've started and abandoned, waiting to be picked back up again.

I want to thank you for treating me like your own, even though I'm not related to you by blood. You have always made me feel loved and cherished and never made me feel out of place. I know I can count on you to be there for me when I need you to be, no matter what. We may not be blood, but you are and forever will be my family.

Dalton, do you know what the first memory I remember with you? Mom was picking me up from daycare after she had gone to the doctors to find out if you were a boy or a girl. I remember that mom and I guessed girl, but Derrick said you were going to be a boy. Mom and I were wrong, obviously, but I remember being happy that we found something else out about you. Even though I was complaining that Derrick was right, I was so excited that we were one step closer to meeting you.

You have been my partner in crime. You watch musicals with me and sing at the top of your lungs when I feel like having a concert in the kitchen. You get involved in everything that interests me as a way to stay close to me. I love you more than life itself. I will forever be there for you for help and advice so don't hesitate to call. If you ever find yourself doubting my affection for you, just remember the time when I almost fought that fake intruder in my towel, fully prepared to fight naked if someone broke in.

I love you all so very much!
