I love Fridays but this one is bittersweet for me.
You all have heard me mention my beloved BFF Jessica of Design Wonderland on this blog a lot. In my house she’s referred to as a sisterwife because we’re always together. Jess was my college roommate (the best one I ever had) and after college we’ve been together ever since. She’s also the only friend that I’ve NEVER had an argument with – and if you deal with me daily that’s saying a lot.
Well today is sad because she’s making moves and leaving DC/Maryland and moving to NYC tomorrow. I am so excited and happy for her new adventure, for her fabulous new job and for finally being flooded with wonderful opportunities and recognition for how wonderful she is (like I’ve always told her). On the opposite end, my heart is heavy because my lunch buddy, eternal plus 1, tea time partner and more is moving away. At least she’ll always be a bus/train/car ride away and now I really have a place I know I can stay without ever having to ask.
Jessica always says that I encourage her to dream bigger but she always encourages me to dream in full color. She fills my life with creativity, magic and a lot of love and I will miss getting to see her whenever I want. But that just means lots of trips to NYC in my future.
I know that she will make New York her home, that she will shine just as brightly there as she does here and that things will only be better every day. I know that she will be a success. I know that we will always be the best of friends.
