This week one of my dearest old friends is visiting me in Austin for the week. We've known each other since middle school, and only continued to get closer over the years. We have so many memories from childhood, high school, visiting each other in college, and now in adulthood: being teammates on the cheer squad for years; picking lemons off of Kasey's neighbor's tree in the middle of the night to make lemon ice cream; exploring LA together; her standing next to me on my wedding day as a bridesmaid.
We have both changed in so many ways since were kids. We have totally different professions, and live very different lives in our respective cities: while I write, edit and do marketing here in Austin; Kasey has always been a science-minded girl and is studying to be a Physician Assistant in Denver.
Friendships like this are quite rare. The kind that stand the test of time, and endure no matter which way life seems to go. I'm so thankful that she's here with me this week, helping me through the rough transition I've had to living in this new state, and reminding me that not everything in life changes or goes away.
Tell us all about a lasting friendship in your life...
