Do you have a long distance friendship? I do. One of my best friends lives approximately two and a half hours away from me. Although not being able to hang out with her every day sucks, it makes the times we do get to see each other even more special! As I've met up with my friend over the years I've discovered that there are things that happen every time we meet up.

1. When one of you suggests meeting up.

Of course you want to meet up! You haven't seen them in what feels like ages and the best part is you might be free next week!

2. When you still aren't sure your meet up will actually happen.

Obviously you both want to see each other, but will you? You each have busy lives, not to mention the fact that you live so far apart, and sadly getting to see each other is almost never on the agenda.

3. When your plans to meet up become definite.

Not only are you free next week, but so are they! Finally, the two of you will get to hang out with each other like normal friends!

4. When you just cant wait to see them.

In the days leading up to seeing them, you can not contain your excitement at getting to see your BFF again. After all, it's been months since you last saw each other, and you honestly feel like you cant wait a minute more.

5. Thinking of all the things you will do when you finally meet up.

All the time you spend waiting to see your BFF is spent planning every moment of their visit to make up for the time you've spent away from each other!

6. When the day finally comes.

Woohoo! You've waited all week for today, and it feels like a Friday in a week full of Mondays.

7. When time seems to slow down as you wait to see them.

For goodness sake, you've already waited all week, so why do the hours leading up to seeing them have to feel like eternity? Everything else about today seems unimportant and boring knowing that you get to see your best friend later.

8. When you see them.

Finally, their car pulls up! They hop out, and the long wait to see your best friend is over!

9. Running to meet them.

Normal people may walk up to greet on another, but not you and your best friend. The two of you run at each other like two football players trying to tackle one another. Honestly it's a miracle that my best friend and I haven't injured one another doing this.

10. Finally getting to hang out with them.

Finally, the two of you get to make up for lost time! After all, hanging out is what friends are supposed to do right?

11. Filling each other in on the things that have happened since you last saw each other.

One of my favorite parts of seeing my best friend is listening to all of the things that have been going on in their life and telling them all of the crazy things that have happened to me since we last saw each other. Whether its filled with laughter, tears or ranting communication is an important and wonderful part of any friendship!

12. Knowing that your time together is coming to a close.

In the last part of your visit, the excitement of seeing your best friend starts to recede while the dread of having to say goodbye starts to close in on your time together.

13. Having to say goodbye.

Goodbyes are the worst, especially goodbyes to your best friend.

14. Making plans for next time.

However, saying goodbye is much easier when you know when you will be saying hello to your best friend again!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
