It's easy to have surface friends, the people you call when you want to celebrate something: a promotion, a new house, cocktails just because it's Thursday night. Real, true friends are far more rare. The friends you call when your life doesn't go as planned, the person that actually shows up on moving day, ready to get their hands dirty, the friend that will drop everything and fly across the country for you in your time of need. Abra's been my person for 7 years now. She's been a good friend when it was easy, and a damn good friend when it was hard. She's the epitome of a good time, with zero filter that makes you laugh until you cry. I'm so thankful for my bestie, especially on her birthday! (Creeper photo circa 2013).
