It's been over 20 years that started back in our Brownie days when we would run around a church while our moms handled things for the troop. It was grade school days that included meeting in the hallways between classes, weekend movies and being a part of the Ecstatic 8. It was college days filled with picking up this stranded Delaware girl from a gas station to transport her safely home, broken hearts cured with some donuts and vodka diets and picking each other up when needed.
We have helped each other through hard moments meant to break us, celebrated the best moments and nurtured a lifelong friendship. She has been the friend I have been blessed to take so many journeys through life, who's spunk is never ending and who always deserves the best.
Today. I get to watch her take her journey to be a wife and start the next chapter of her life and I am honored she has chosen me to be beside her as she starts this special journey.
Shell, I am so happy and excited for you on your wedding day. I know our friendship will only get stronger and I can't wait for all that is to come for your future. I love you my dear friend
