I finally got to see Alyssa!!
Little background story: We became friends in Orchestra toward the end of freshman year in high school and best friends throughout high school. We ended up parting ways in college. Fast forward four years later and she has graduated, gotten engaged, and gotten into graduate school in Colorado.
How great is her life right now? Because of the distance, we never got to hang out or talk like we did in high school. Do I miss it? Of course. But I understand. We’re all growing up and living our lives. I still see her as one of my best friends and though we’ve made other best friends in the process, I hope she doesn’t forget about me. If that day ever comes I will be a very, very sad camper.
Anyway, we met at Cheddar’s. I had such excitement running through when I saw her and all I wanted to do was grab her hand to see the ring and oh, the ring. It was so gorgeous and she was glowing.
She told me the proposal story on how Greg planned a hiking trip that led to 36 red roses and a picnic. Then we caught up with grad school and work, circling back to weddings.
I hope one day she and I will work in the same company and if not, at least live in the same city so that we can continue our friendship and hang out and have fun.
Greg is a very lucky guy and I am so happy for my friend.
Time to unwind. Another busy day tomorrow at work. Bleugh!
