This weekend I was lucky enough to get together with my very best girlfriends to celebrate the most fabulous Mindy’s 30th birthday. Today is officially the big day so I thought what better place to publicly dote on her amazingness than right here. Mindy is one of those people who just has it all together. She is gorgeous, she is smart, she is incredibly stylish, and most of all, she is queen of the one-liners. I mean really, she can make us laugh like no other.
It’s hard to believe that Mindy, Leslie and I have been friends now for a DECADE! We all met in college at The University of Oklahoma and this weekend we spent much of the time laughing about all of the crazy things we did in school…and out of school.
We often talk about our soul mates in a romantic sense, but I think those terms can apply to the realm of friendships as well. I was so blessed to find my soul mates, or as Anne Shirley would call them, my kindred spirits, in college and have held onto them. We’ve been through highs and lows together, we’ve laughed a lot and cried a lot, we’ve lived down the street from each other and hundreds of miles apart, and our friendship has never wavered. We may not talk everyday like we once did, but when we are together it’s like we’ve never skipped a beat.
So today, here is to on of the best–Mindy Stowers! I’m glad to have been a part of 1/3 of your first 30 years, and am excited to see where the rest of our lives lead us..because we’ll be there together through all of it. The best is yet to come.
