project 31. day 15. ::day one::
write to encourage a friend. inspire her beauty.
the second I read this, I knew exactly who I was going to write to. katherine. it was no question. because to me, this post translates as: write to a friend you find beautiful. inside and out. I guess it’s different than that… but that’s where I’m taking it. so, there. if you’ve been following my blog at all, I’m sure you’ve heard me mention her, a time or twenty. and though I’m lucky enough to have more than one beautiful girlfriend in my life… this one has been such a breathe of fresh air for me. have you seen “I love you, man?” you need to. highly hilarious… my relationship with this amazing woman always reminds me of the relationship between paul rudd and jason segel in this movie… insta-friends. sometimes when you know, you just know… but I digress. get to posting already!
I thought a lot about this post. I wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to express what you mean to me. you’ve been such an incredible friend to me this past year. you were one of the first people I told I was pregnant… and you kept me going as I puked my way through it. then, when g shocked us by coming a month early… you were right there to support me. reassuring me that nothing I think/thought/did would shock you. you were so real… so nonjudgemental… such a true friend. I cannot even begin to thank you for that.
there is something about you… that I can’t quite put my finger on. you’re obviously beautiful. you’ve created a beautiful little family. I cannot imagine you being married to anyone other than jon ::could you guys BE any cuter? I mean seriously::… and everly? don’t even get me started. I’m pretty sure she’s the most beautiful, smart, inquisitive little girl babycakes on the planet. no question. you did that.
you have the most contagious laugh. I’m pretty sure you could infect the friggin’ grinch with that laugh of yours. you know who you are… which I think is rare in our age group… and you never apologize for that. which I love. you are the easiest person to be around… fun, relaxed, HILARIOUS… you are such an amazing mother. you should be so proud of yourself for that alone. you’re always there for everly, but you also take time to take care of you… which I think is essential in being the best mama you can be. but honestly, I’m pretty sure you’re the one that taught me that. your blog is so much fun to read because you write how you talk… which cracks me up. I can literally hear you when I’m reading your posts. oh, and our tmi talks… they provide a much needed daily dose of comic relief!
there is no need to inspire you’re beauty… you are easily one of the most beautiful women I know. inside and out… but I thought I would let you know just how incredibly grateful I am to have you in my life. I’m totally looking forward to what our futures bring. I hope you know, I’ll be right here, giggling along with you.
I love you, brosef…
