As they say, time sure flies, and boy that is what has been happening with me this year. I have been going through a lot of changes and have been getting caught up in the day to day of life and have been ignoring the blog. I have said it before and I will keep saying it until I get my act in gear and keep up with it. I am sorry and will try better.
Another year of friendship has passed with me and Giselle. And truly, the friendship that has formed between us is very special to me and more important than I would have guessed. They great thing about this year was that we got to spend our friendiversary together.
The date was August 12, which fell on a Friday this year, but the actual day was Sunday the 14th. So here is what transpied.
I was at work on Friday August 12th, and I got a facebook message from Giselle. We ended up chatting through facebook for most of the day right up until I was about to get off from work. It was a lovely conversation. Right before I said goodbye it hit me that that day was 4 years since we first met. So I ended our chat with the following:
On the sappy sentimental side of things, happy friendivesary. 4 years ago on August 12th, I walked into a little crystal shop in Sedona and thus began this wonderful, not always easy, but certainly interesting and entertaining friendship. The actual day is Sunday which is pretty cool since we will be seeing each other, but the date was August 12th. Anyways, I am eternally grateful that it was written for us to cross paths that day and for the friendship has grown from it. I Love You.
Then as noted in my message we did indeed see each other on Sunday. Giselle had come down to Tucson to perform her show and as usual, I went to see the show and then we spent the night hanging out chatting and drinking by the pool at her hotel. It was wonderful as it always is.
I love that somehow we manage to see each other multiple times each year and of course chat and email and talk on the phone a well. It is still a budding friendship but it has strong roots and I look forward to many more years.
