It takes a long time to grow an old friend

How cute is she? Char is one of my best friends and I honestly don't know what I'd do without her. We've grown up together, ever since I was 4 and she was 3. We've built brick houses, climbed forts her brothers made, got tied up by those same brothers, dreamed the best sort of dreams about growing up, how we'd change the world and have little bakeries and chocolateries next to each other!

Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty - Sicilian Proverb

I love that I can be completely myself around her and she still likes me! We're very different in lots of things like fashion, family (I come from a family of 9 kids, she's one of 3), personality, etc. But in the things that really matter, we are very much on the same track. We share a love of food, a love of books, a love of movies (some call it obsession:) and we share our faith.

Love is like the wild-rose briar;
Friendship is like the holly tree.
The holly is dark when the rose briar blooms,
But which will bloom most constantly?
- Emily Bronte
Laughter is a key foundation in our relationship and there's plenty of it let me tell you! Sometimes I don't even know what we're laughing about but that's not really the important part, is it? Visit this beautiful girl at lonely cities.
