To My Best Friend

I don't thank you enough.

To My Best  Friend

To my Best Friend,

I could probably write an entire novel expressing how lucky I am to have someone like you in my life, let alone as my best friend. It’s funny how we use to hate each other, we would never get along, and you were a stranger to me whenever I saw you. Thankfully times have changed.

Thank you for being my shoulder to cry on whenever life gets rough. I know I can always count on you to be there for me whenever I feel like giving up. You are the first person I call whenever I am upset, or whenever I get hurt, it’s because I know you will listen to me vent for an hour about whatever happened and talk to me until I am done crying about it. If it wasn’t for a lot of our long phone conversations I don’t think I would be who I am today. You help me through the toughest problems I have to face and because I have you, I know I don’t have to face them alone.

Thank you for your honesty. I love how brutally honest you are with me, it’s one of my favorite qualities about you. You are the one person who tells me the things I need to hear, not the things I want to hear and I am so thankful for that. You always tell it how it is, whether it’s about the choices I am making, the boy I would be talking too, my outfit choice, and just about everything else. I know I can trust you to be honest with me and that is why I value you so much, you are the only person I can rely on to tell me the truth about every single thing. There have been times where your honesty has made me upset, or causes a fight between us, but we got over it because you were usually right about whatever we argued about and I just didn’t want to hear what you were saying.

Thank you for all the adventures so far. By adventures I mean long drives with no real destination, our sleepovers and housesitting duties, our trip to Florida and our countless camping trips. My favorite adventure was probably my graduation party, I loved celebrating with you because if it wasn't for you I probably would have spent most of my senior year slacking off and crying. You helped me so much that year. No matter what we are doing I am always having a fun time with you. I honestly just like being around you, you always make me laugh, and I know I make you laugh too, that’s the best, laughing with you. I enjoy our long drives blasting music, mostly One Direction or Gnash, while I sing along very loud and obnoxiously and you just look at me and shake your head. Our silly sleepovers where we usually stay up all night long and regret it the next day because we seem to forget that we aren’t 6 years old anymore and we actually have things to do and stuff to accomplish the next day. Those are the best though because that’s when we have our most meaningful talks and I love it so much. Well, you know house sitting, nuff said. Our trip to Florida started off as a joke but soon became a reality and still till this day I want to go back and do it again because I had a blast with you. Every time I think about our camping trips and that damn kayak, I can't help but laugh, we sucked at that. We’ll get better. Every time I am with you we create the best memories and I can’t wait to continue creating more as we get older! We have already experienced a lot of firsts together and there’s so much more to come. (CANADA!)

Finally, thank you for being you. You are not only my best friend, partner in crime, but you’re my family and I know no matter how rough things get we will always be there for each other. I hope you know I will always have your back, I will always look out for you. You’re problems will be mine and you won’t have to go through anything alone. You’re the greatest person I know. You’re so full of love and kindness and even though you hide it you truly care about the people in your life. You are absolutely beautiful and I don’t tell you enough. You’re much wiser than you think, and life is only just beginning for you. I know I am only a year older, but listen to me when I say, the things you are going through now, won’t matter a year from now. I promise you. Don’t let them get you down. You deserve the greatest things that this life has to offer. I don’t thank you enough for all the crap you do for me. Without you I truly don’t know what kind of person I would be. You are my rock and I am so lucky to have you. Please remember that no matter what I will always be here for you, just like you are for me. I can’t picture life without you, I want to experience everything with my best friend.

Thank you for being you, for being my ray of light on a cloudy day, the air when I can’t breathe, and my best friend. You are more than appreciated. I love you so much.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
