A jellyfish! From Seed To Stem
When I think of my friends, I can feel it, I’m so incredibly lucky. My longest friendship now, has been going on for 24 years, since kindergarten. I have new friends, that I’ve met only a short few weeks ago, that will now be long time friends. And I have friends everywhere in between. I have friends here, near, far, and oceans away. It’s amazing to know that anywhere, I can call someone I care so much for, and have silly banter back and forth or meaningful catch-ups with, at any anytime. I’m a lucky girl with really amazing people in my life. One of my silliest, and most loving friendships, belongs to my long-time friend, Katie. I’ve had some of my craziest adventures with her, that still make me smile from ear to ear, or actually laugh out loud— pretty loud, when I think of them. And I was even her prom date, when my brother refused to go (I was a better date anyway— obviously). Katie has sent some of the best and most thoughtful packages to me and M. The only thing that could make them better, is if she came inside too.

Thank you Katie, I’d be lost in space without you (really, maybe, cream cheese too).
