Best Friend Swagger and I met in high school, in a program called Model United Nations. We have very different interests in just about every field, but as she so eloquently put it at my wedding, the thing that has held our friendship together over all these years is "our general interest in each other's lives." We have arm-in-arm gone through 2 years of high school (we didn't really get to know each other until about half way through), 4 years of college (my college year count is still going, but 4 for her - woo woo!), a total of 3 visits to New York, 3 trips to Arizona, a couple of Fourth of July's and an insane amount of themed parties.
Happy Birthday, Best Friend Swagger! I love you for who you are, and I'm so proud of everything you're doing with your life.
Enjoy my Ten on Tuesday!
