On this morning I opened my eyes and in typical Jess fashion she was sharing my pillow. “Happy 30th!” - @jesssyhope “Happy wedding day!” - me
I’ll never forget that ❤️
Happy birthday to the human I don’t see as a bestie, more like a big sister. Funny thing, Jess didn’t like me when we first met. (13 years ago) Her X changed my flat tire randomly and I thanked him by accepting a date. A week later I started my first bartending job in college, where she worked and vowed to have me fired by the end of the weekend. Welp, a couple shifts and calendar shoot later we were in love.
A couple years ahead in school she advised which professors to take. Her sister worked at my restaurant and she also liked to advise me about scheduling, especially around the holidays lol. I’ll never forget calling her during sunset at the park telling her I left corp, was going back to school and didn’t want to be in Florida anymore. She advised me to stay. “It takes 2 years at least for a place to feel like home and finish your classes as an in-state student.” Then she planted the LA seed. Since college, I haven’t made a decision without her weighing in and distance meant nothing! Every holiday since she moved whether I lived in Boca or Miami she stayed with me for either Thanksgiving or Xmas. One of the determining factors about moving to LA was to be closer to her during the toughest transition period of my life and to be apart of her growing her family. Jess, I know your theory but I’ve been here 4 months and it already feels like home having you near by. I love and cherish you! O and now I love you too @callingdrfine #MyBigSister #HerWeddingDay #BestThrowBacks #DidWeWearClothesInCollege? #SheHatesTheBeach #IStillLoveHer #CollegeBesties
