I've made a few *true* friends here in Florida, probably less than a handful of girls I'd actual consider to be real friends. Emily is one of those girls. She is one of the absolute cutest, sweetest girl I've ever met. She's smart, she's fun, she helped me learn to knit! She just has a very tender disposition which makes her very easy to like.
Facebook says we became friends June 2, 2011, but we actually met at Panera on Thursday, May 26, 2011. It has been a growing friendship (one I was super excited about!) and then a couple weeks ago, I found out she's moving to Georgia. *sigh*
This is an awesome opportunity for her career, and it's selfish of me to want her to stay here, lol. But it's definitely pretty depressing for me to see her go.
Anyway, I just wanted to let her know how much I appreciate her friendship; and how hard it is to say goodbye. But Atlanta isn't that far away, and I know we will keep in touch. (plus, I'm kind of pressuring her into starting a blog of her own so that I can keep up with her life;)
"A friend is a hand that is always holding yours, no matter how close or far apart you may be. A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care. A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart." ~Henry Nouwen
