As the days fly by and days turn to weeks, weeks into months and months slide into years, my definition of a friend has evolved. As has my friendships.
Today I want to take a moment to shout out to an amazing woman I met long before I considered her a friend. Like most of my friends, we worked together. Fourth floor has a way of bringing people together, usually over beers at the local watering hole.
My day in December 2013, she had shown up at a coworkers going away party. I thought “oh my goodness” I shouldn’t be socializing with all these non management people. But then I stopped caring. Not because I didn’t love my job, because I do, but because I wasn’t doing anything wrong. I am clearly of drinking age. I am always safe and never talked about work stuff everyone already didn’t know.
So, a few weeks later, we were out together again dancing our asses off. We got along great. We laughed, we practically cried. We were in similar situations. We could compare notes and encourage each other along our little milestones.
We tubed the Wolf River together. Did the Ice Bucket Challenge. We drunk our fair share of Tattoo Bombs. We played obnoxious music on certain people’s birthdays. We celebrated our divorces and our birthdays. I made us breakfast, bacon and coffee. We celebrated our love of football, the Badgers, the Packers, Buffalo Wild Wings and Apple Pie. We joked about my throat being threatened, men who clearly had too much of our amazingness. And we are always there for all the stories. Our love of memes and horoscopes is undeniable.
The last twelves months have been a blast and clearly God intended us to be besties! By far the only soulmate I need is my best friend!
So brave ladies, love your significant other. I hope he/she is your best friend but hold your true friends close.
This is how we feel about marriage (that end in divorce!).
My selfies are not the greatest, but we know how to have fun!
Hey hey- I wanted to be apart of the four eyes club, at least for the picture.
Carving it up!

Well I look good, NOT!
Gladiators! Always a bad decision!!
Her first Packers game! Hard to beat front row tickets for her first game!

Thank you brave lady! I’m proud of you! I’m inspired by you and I love you!
