When i got the text “I GOT THE JOB” from my best friend… I was so filled with emotion, both good and bad, that I almost exploded!! I was filled with so much excitement and happiness for her because she was starting in on a new adventure, a new location, new job, new friends… California was totally new and how exciting is that?! I was was also filled with so much sadness. My best friend was leaving. No more lunch dates, shopping sprees, random drop bys. nope. gone. She wouldn’t be around to watch Lawson grow up and I wouldn’t get to see Cohen’s cute little doggy face whenever I wanted. But the excitement and happiness for her totally outweighed my selfishness for wanting her to stay. Besides, with technology today, she’s just a phone call, facetime, or text away! not to mention facebook, instagram.. you name it.
Then it came to me. ONE LAST EPIC ROADTRIP. We loaded up what she could fit (with two extra humans, their stuff, and a carseat included) and took off. Just two best friends and their kids.
First stop… Colorado! Lawson loved seeing the waterfalls.
Next up… the Grand Canyon!!
and finally… after a crazy day that we will forever remember… San Diego!
Now my best friend is literally 1,500 miles away and living the life she wants!! Just a beautiful soul and her silly dog! As much as I HATE that I cannot see here, in person, whenever i damn well please, I’ve always known that Nebraska was just a short stop on her adventure. So, Tammy, cheers to you and Cohen. Thanks for having lunch with me on that first day and not being offended when I asked if you were adopted!! I love you, Biffy!
