How many people can say they've been best friends ever since birth?? Not many I'm sure. I'm lucky enough to be able to say that though!! Dianna was born almost 2 years after me and we grew up next door to each other until she moved to Florida when I was 12. The distance didn't hurt us though, if anything it made us stronger. I know I can call her or email her anytime and she is there. We have an amazing bond--she is one of the few people that can read me like a book and sometimes I think maybe she knows me better than I know myself. At least she has more faith in me that I do. Sometimes we go a couple of years without getting to see each other, but when we do, we pick up right where we left off.......as if we've never been apart. We got to see each other this past March for a few days. I was so excited. And we did have some really special moments but we also had sick kids so that kind of put a kink in a lot of the things we wanted to do. But now I have the opportunity to see her on the 16th and 17th. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Her husbands company is flying some of the employees and their wives to Alton IL for their holiday party. That's like right next door!! So Todd and I are getting to drive down the afternoon of the 16th and spend all that evening and all the next day with Dianna and Preston until they have to get ready for their party that night. It will be so nice to have some grown up time together and get to do some fun things in St Louis. I'm scared to death something will happen to ruin this get together. I'm trying so hard not to worry. I just need to see my girl and have some awesome time with her. I love her as if she is my family. (I guess she is, we did the whole "blood sisters" pact before she moved away!!)
DIANNA---only 8 more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
