The one where I get mushy

Last weekend, I got to be a part of one of my best friend's weddings. I was so happy to be included because she is literally one of the kindest, most thoughtful people in the world. And I even love her (now) husband! I'm incredibly protective of my friends, and have been known to tell it like it is to their significant others if they aren't being treated well. That said, Cecil is a total keeper.

I'd be lying if I said I was just excited for the wedding. I was finally reunited with my best friends in the whole world, some of whom I haven't seen in 3 1/2 years. And it sounds lame, but being with my friends again made me feel so amazing and whole. I like to think we're the type of friends that can not talk for years and then pick back up in the same place like nothing ever happened.

My friends also happen to be my Alpha Phi sorority sisters. To those who are anti-sorority, hear me out. Some people say joining a sorority is buying friends. If this is the case, it was money well-spent. Sure there were people in my house that I didn't get along with. But to come away from the experience with 6 friends that I know would be there for me regardless of my life situation is worth everything to me. We're all very different people in all life situations. Some of us are getting married, some of us are single, and some of us have kids. We live all over the west coast, and yet you can throw us in a room for a weekend and it's the best thing ever. And as much as I love the friends I've made in Reno, there's absolutely nothing in the world that could ever replace them.

So between best friends, endless laughs with Mr. Bee, harassing underaged cousins, NINJA TURTLE ICE CREAM, intense photobooth seshes, and so much more, it was the best weekend I've had in the longest time, and one of my favorite weddings ever. I wish I could freeze time and live in last weekend.
