When I was 4 years old, my family moved to the Central San Joaquin Valley from Gilroy, California.
It was a big move. We had no family or friends here.
But we began attending a little church shortly after our move and Toya & I immediately became friends with a crazy little girl named Larissa. She was fun and silly and she loved to play dress up just like my sisters & me.
We quickly became best friends.
Our moms homeschooled us together, Larissa's mom taught us to sew, we had thousands of play dates, swim parties, even a super secret club. shhhhh :)
We experienced life together.
Over the past 20 years, we've changed and grown and developed different interests, but we've managed to stay good friends.
& today, I will watch my dear friend marry her soulmate.
May your life with Brandon be filled with joy, laughter & bliss...
and may the next years of our friendship be even better than the first 20.
