There should be more celebration of friendship. With all the songs about love I have yet to find my friendship anthem. Romantic love is wonderful but most relationships come and go. It’s the friendships that last. This photograph is my small anthem to friendship, and to one friend in particular.

We met at the beginning of the year but she has so integrated herself into my daily life that I have started to talk like her, and one of my friends from home thought we were dating. I took this picture of my galentine during one of our many impromptu photoshoots, where she always makes me look far better than in real life.

Thanks to my gal for being the backbone of my Instagram, the willing recipient of daily meme tagging, the cheerleader for all my pursuits and the listener to all my woes. I’m grateful to have a friend like you.
