I am such a happy girl today, because my best friend in the entire world is home for the holidays! She has been living in Costa Rica for the past year and a half, and I have just been missing her like crazy. We had another one of our tearful goodbyes (there have been too many) about 7 months ago as my brand-new husband and I were exiting our wedding reception en route to our honeymoon suite. We have been friends since before I can remember (together enduring Catholic grade-school, shaving our legs, first crushes, and geeky prom dates), but our lives have unfortunately taken each other in very different directions over the past few years. She has been traveling the Spanish-speaking world, meeting ridiculously handsome Latin men everywhere she goes, and I have resigned myself to the daily 9-5 routine, settling comfortably into a happily married life with the man I truly believe to be my soul-mate.
But, for ONE WHOLE MONTH... she's home! I am so overjoyed!
Welcome home Lisa, I've missed you so much, you're the best Christmas present I could ask for!
