If you ever decide to be jealous of me for something, it should be the stroke of luck I had when I crossed paths with Shannon on the softball field in ninth grade. I was minding my own business waiting for my time to shine during tryouts and she was bouncing around center field talking to anybody who would be still for a second. It took all of ten seconds and I was hooked. I know what you're thinking. Yes, that is who you have to thank for me going from a quiet little bookworm to the chattiest person you will ever meet. Ever.
|Jesus, we're adorable.|
I remember the first time I saw this quote on (what else?) Pinterest. Who the f was stalking Shannon and me and decided to come up with a quote to describe our friendship perfectly? Don't get me wrong, our respective boyfriend and husband are so so so much more than just guys we have fun with, we love them both an insane amount and they are definitely our soulmates too, but she is my soulmate on whole different level. She is my rock, my lobster, my best friend, my sister.
She is the person I can't wait to tell things to, miss everyday, and who I don't hate when it's her birthday instead of mine. I love you, you sweet, beautiful, funny, strong, amazing woman. Your only flaw is that you fell in love with and married a man who insists on living two hours away from me. But, hey I did the same thing. This is where I would insert a picture of the two of us with our boys, but I don't have one. How have we forgotten to make that happen? I bet they're pretty ok with the fact that we're too obsessed with each other to even realize they're with us.
Happy Happy Birthday to you, Shannon! Give yourself a giant hug and kiss from me. I love you so so many.
