I normally don’t write the most personal posts, but today I really wanted to write about two of my best friends, Samantha and Abbie, both who live out of state.
Samantha has been my best friend since the day I was born, literally. Our moms were friends in high school and had us two weeks apart. I moved away from San Diego when I was 11, but luckily, with Facebook, we stayed connected. We saw each other once in the four years through high school, but that did nothing to stop us from being best friends. Recently we have been able to see each other on a more regular basis and in the past year and a half we have seen each other about 5 times. My life would be completely different without her by my side, and I am so thankful for her.
Abbie and I have only known each other a little over a year, but I love her so much. We met while in training for the job I currently have. We bonded over FireFly and Dr Who and were basically inseparable after that. No joke, we worked the same shift, the same days and sat right next to each other, plus we would normally spend weekends together since we always had the same days off. Unfortunately, for me, Abbie moved back to her home state Minnesota in September. She is more than a car ride away so we haven’t been able to see each other since she left, but she is visiting in March and I am so excited! We text and talk on the phone, but I am in desperate need of a shopping trip with this girl.
Anyways, sappy post over. I just miss these girls a lot. Does you best friend live in a different state? How do you guys stay up to date on each others lives?
