Happy birthday bff

6 Feb

Sometimes people are destined to find each other. When I was in kindergarten, I met Erika. I don’t remember exactly how our friendship started, but it’s pretty clear we were meant to be friends. We grew up on the same road and are exactly six months apart – destiny, right? I guess we’ll never know for sure, but I know I’m lucky to have her in my life.

So happy birthday Erika! (And happy half birthday to me!)


Life just wouldn’t be the same without you in it.


I get by with a little help from my friends

3 Aug

I had one of those aha moments yesterday at a happy hour with some coworkers. We were all sitting around a table outside at a little Mexican restaurant, sipping on margaritas and munching on chips. There was a lot of laughter, funny name-guessing games and storytelling.

When I got in my car to drive home, I realized how lucky I am to have people like this in my life. People like my best friends Erika and Lindsay, my siblings, my parents, Sebastian, my coworkers – everyone helps me get by each day.

It’s easy to let life get you down sometimes. From stresses at work to missing my boyfriend to figuring out future plans. But I have great friends. They bring laughter into my life when I can’t find it on my own.

Thanks to all you wonderful people.
