When I think of my early 20’s, I think of my dear friend Holly.
That’s when we met you see.
Both of our younger brothers had just started freshman year in high school, were good friends and thought that both she and I should meet.
They were right!
The moment Holly and I met, it was like we had been friends for the longest time yet, it was the most perfect timing to meet because we needed each other so.
We shared so many of the same interests, music, art, crafts, photography, food, candy, nail polish…
In my kitchen, around my kitchen table, we spent endless nights talking, and with the help of Natalie Merchant, Jewel and Bob Marley, we mended our broken hearts and formed a beautiful friendship.
Holly has been living in Vancouver for quite some time now, is married, has a successful business (Mimosa) and is the beautiful mama of two gorgeous boys.
Although I have not seen Holly for over a decade, I know that the day we meet again, it will be like no time had gone by at all.
I can’t wait for that day.
To see her and to meet those two boys whose sparkle in their eyes twinkle just as bright as their mama’s.
