#ThanksMonth Vol. 1

November is a month of giving thanks and today I'm kicking off #ThanksMonth. I know that I'm a little late to the game since it's already the 18th but as far as I'm concerned it's the thought that counts so here goes.

Today, I'm giving thanks for one of my best friends. We've been best friends since sophomore year of high school when we bonded over our failures to understand math and until college we were pretty inseparable. We went to different colleges but no matter how much time passed between seeing each other or even talking on the phone, things don't change with us.

Last summer she moved to Colorado with her fiancé for his shiny new post-grad job and we started up our long distance best friendship again. We're back to playing phone tag for weeks on end but no matter what, we eventually manage to make contact. And when I'm having a bad day, or I'm struggling with the fact that I'm 25 and I don't have anything figured out, she is there. Ready to hear me out, give me a reality check, make me laugh, and remind me that no matter how old or stressed out I get I did that thing senior homecoming that she'll never let me live down.

Friends like her are incredibly rare and I am lucky enough to have a few friends like that so today I'm saying thanks for her but also for all of my amazing friends. I'm blessed to know all of you.

Happy #ThanksMonth!
