On this day, a beautiful baby girl named Amanda was born. And the world became a little kinder, a little funnier, and a whole lot brighter.
On the day we met, our souls did the Electric Slide towards each and they haven’t stopped dancing like awkward suburban white girls since.
We are both the same and different, which makes our friendship work. Since meeting her, I’ve finally acquired a taste for tea, given yoga a second-try, laughed til I couldn’t breathe on several occasions, and gained confidence in myself.
If you have an Amanda in your life, consider yourself blessed. If you’re not sure, here are some signs you do:
- you’ve had a 30-minute conversation about how donuts are the new cupcakes
- you wore the same exact outfit to an event and didn’t change
- you got the giggles in a fancy establishment after one glass of champagne (seriously, just one glass. you shared it)
- she shares with you her darkest secrets. Like the time she shoveled the driveway in red lipstick
To my dear friend Amanda, you are my favorite forever friend. I wish you the happiest and most special day.
