A very close friend is getting married in 10 short days.
We’ve been friends for 2 years, although it feels like I’ve known her for a lifetime.
The first day we ever spoke we discovered that we both love our dogs with that crazy kind of love only dog lovers understand.
The same year we both lost our dogs and we shared a pain that only we could understand.
We’ve had some unforgettable holidays together.
Taken about a hundred pictures like this one in different places.
She’s my perfect shopping partner.
She loves Van Gogh’s Starry Night.
These are the Starry night-inspired birthday cupcakes I made her.
She has an eye for the most beautiful things. (Check out her Pinterest boards here– you’ll see what I mean)
If anyone looks good in anything- it’s her.
We’ve eaten everything together- from a Wasabi chocolate cake to deep fried crabs on a beach.
She’s attracted to colourful things like a bee to a flower.
We shamelessly love Shahrukh Khan together.
One morning when I was miserable, she left a warm blueberry muffin at my desk with a little note.
It’s as though we’ve had many years of friendship and fun, all packed into 2 amazing years.
And now she’s leaving, and I want so much for her to stay.
But what I want even more is for her to begin her fabulous new life, with her wonderful to-be husband, and just be insanely happy in whatever she chooses to do.
I’ll miss you Shriya, and I feel so lucky to have found a friend like you.
I know for certain we have many, many more amazing memories waiting to be created by us together. Love you!
