But the core of this blog is truly the friendship that started it all.
Eighteen years ago. If our friendship were a child, she would be going to college this year!
As a culture, we don’t talk enough about modern friendships between adults. How do you “break up” with a toxic friend? Can you still be friends, if you don’t talk for months? Rom Coms and novels feature endless romance stories, of course, but your best friend isn’t the sidekick in your love story. Friendship is an adventure wholly independent and worthwhile on its own.
So, this blog is about our friendship, and it’s also about each of us.

But none of these differences can cause a rift because we’ve been through the thick and thin together. Moving across the country or overseas, a wedding, losing our jobs–these experiences have brought us together. At the end of the day, there’s no hack for this type of friendship.
