Just a quick post to celebrate hanging out with this lovely gal last week.
Do you have friends where you feel connected in this sibling way? So, I don’t mean in a soul-mate kind of way or in a you’ve-known-each-other-for-20-years way, but in a easy-going, you-can-rely-on-this-person-totally way?
That’s Steph for me.
She’s nothing like anyone else in my family (and she’d probably say the same for me), but I don’t know. We’re not cut from the same cloth, though we both hail from Long Island. We don’t share DNA, though we devour books, travel and anything by Elizabeth Gilbert.
I just feel like we must’ve been sisters in another life or something.
She’s almost done with a crazy accelerated bachelors nursing program and I could not be more proud of her. Having her visit on a whim last week was the best.
Our pre-visit conversation went something like this:
S: Hey, so I don’t know how busy you are, or what your schedule is, or if you’re around…
Me: Steph, stop. What do you need?
S: Oh, I was just wondering if, maybe, and you can say no, but if I could, um, stay at your place on Tuesday night?
Me: OH MY GOD YES OF COURSE YOU CAN. THIS IS THE BEST NEWS EVER!!!!
I mean, I like hosting people at my place, staying up late talking and cooking breakfast in the morning, but this was a treat. She was only in town for two and a half days, and I basically got to hang out with her for 24hrs. Just magic.
Wishing her a happy last 8 weeks of school – you’re in the home stretch!
