So my wish came true!
I was able to go to the beach with an amazing friend of mine, Emmy (kirbyfullyloaded).
It was nice being able to be away from the dorms.It felt like the first time in a long time since I had been away from school related things.
Emmy’s mom is amazing. She made us breakfast everyday. In fact, this morning she made us chocolate chip pancakes and we ate them watching the high tide with the early sun.
Chocolate. Sun. Sand. Ocean. What else could a girl ask for??
Anyways, after breakfast, we both changed from our pajamas into our bathing suits (although it probably wasn’t the best idea considering my massive food baby) and ran to tan on the deck of her house. We listened to Maroon 5 together and made plans for our next weekend date! Hopefully we will be able to surf and bake a bunch of fattening goodies.
Weekends like this really let me value my friends and realize importance of spending time with good people.
Being able to stay up late with Emmy, snacking on random cookies, seaweed, and digestive wheat crackers (trust me, they taste absolutely amazing), just to keep us awake while we talked all night until the early hours of the morning was great.
Painting our nails for hours, singing along to music, critiquing singers for foibles in their voices, and not being able to wake up from staying up so late…priceless.
It lets me step back and realize how blessed I am with my friends.
Thank you Emmy for letting me stay at your house this weekend.
You are an amazing girl. Never change.
