February is my Blog Post a Day Month and so i have jumped onto the blog wagon and will post a blog a day based off of the prompts given by @blogherblogging. This month's theme is all about family.
NaBloPoMo Prompt of the Day (Feb 8): Do you have a friend who is practically a brother or sister?
The answer would be a resounding YES!!!
By the time that this posts, it will be 36 days til i visit California and get to see my best friend Melissa who is like a sister. We have been friends since high school and she is the first person i call in any situation. She is my sounding board as well as support and is always positive and uplifting no matter what the reason is for my call from the midwest.
We have so many funny stories from college and our adult life which have continued to bring us closer together.
One of my favorite memories involves a year that i showed up as a surprise for a party which was also the first time that i met Melissa's future husband. He immediately walked up to me and introduced himself and said that he had been instructed that he had to kiss my butt if he wanted to date Melissa.
As a result of this there is photographic evidence that he kissed my butt. See below...
Since i live in the Midwest, it is hard to see each other all the time but we have the kind of relationship where nothing is missed by distance... things just pick right back up.
