A Little Surprise

I've talked about my friend Morgan before.
I've also showcased this picture before...It's currently my iPhone background

Morgan is my longest friend (she's the blondie on the left I'm on the right). The friend who always let me be Barbie when we played barbies (she was a really good Skipper), the friend who I started a band with ("Reality"), my favorite friend to road trip with, one of the few people who actually calls me out on numerous things...and I don't mind it, the friend who I spent every summer at the pool/tennis/golf with from 8am-8pm almost every day, the friend who I mailed a journal back and forth with during college, so we could still have those real deep heart-to-heart conversations. 

Morgan is also the friend who has lived around 2000 miles (I checked on Google Maps) away since college. We've gotten used to the fact that we see each other a few times a year (usually during the summer/holiday season when she visits home), and then at least once when I go visit  her in wine country. Thanks to text messaging, FaceTime, and hand written (gasp) letters our friendship hasn't changed in the slightest.

So when I got this text on Saturday morning, I was thrilled:
*Regarding the "h" after "Emmy"...Morgan is the only person who can get away calling me by my middle name, and  Emmy
We met at our favorite restaurant this past Tuesday. It was the Best week night I've had in ages. We talked, and talked, and talked. We laughed just as much as we talked. We ate so much delicious Mexican food... Then we talked more. It was such a great surprise, and made the rest of my week incredible. 

This coming Monday is her 25th Birthday (and she'll be back home in NorCal). So to Morgan: Happy Happy Birthday. I hope you get everything you want, and MORE this year... You deserve it. I hope it's full of life, light, laughter, and love. You are one of the most Godly, kind, happy, stylish, and beautiful women I'm blessed to call a friend. Thank you for being real, for being my friend, for always being there for me no matter what, and teaching me that inner beauty will always surpass outer beauty. I Love You Morgie. Happy 25th. 


  1. How sweet! I love my friends who I don't see often, but have such amazing relationships with still! Happy birthday to your sweet bff!

  2. This makes me want to call my best friend immediately! She's also long distance (and also in the Bay Area) and I completely understand the excitement that goes along with those visits. What a fantastic Tuesday night!

  3. This is so sweet. Aren't best best BEST friends just the greatest? I'm so happy for you that you have such an incredible friend in your life!

  4. So sweet! I am attached to my very own personal Morgan. I love that we can go months without talking, but pick up right where we left off when we do see each other. xo
