A Letter to Robin

I've been putting off this post for a while now...mostly because I couldn't even think of how to begin. I think it's finally time to write it.
Dear Robin,
I want to begin by saying that this is not a goodbye.
But, I've been putting this off for soo long because it's not simple. We have been best friends since 9th grade. 9th grade! We have seen each other through the best and worst of times, from heartbreaks to engagements. You have lived within driving distance to me since high school and now you're a plane ride away. It still hasn't sunk in.
So, instead of continued tears, I want to reminisce. It will help me keep you here and stop me from dwelling on the distance and permanence. This letter will be filled to the brim with happy memories to make you smile. ( warned, most of these pictures are severely awkward beautiful pictures of us from high school)
Seeing Allison at your going away party reminded me of all of those years going to Enchanted Forest with our group. Remember that really hot guy that ran the chair lift that we all practically stalked? Yeah...looking back, not so attractive.

And who can forget all of those years at the barn?

Hanging out with our favorite teachers/nurse...


Don't forget about dance class!

Country concerts! (and the car serenades that come with them)

Your boyfriend in coral shorts.
The Emotions Game
Other happy memories:




 Kevin misses you too
So, after you stop cringing smiling at all of those pictures from high school, store all of those happy memories in your head for when you need them. I'm missing you tons (already) and I'm doing the same.
I love you. See you soon for our weekly Skype chat! :-)

 Another chapter in the book
can't go back but you can look
And there we are on every page
Memories I'll always save
Up ahead on the open doors
Who knows what were heading towards?
I wish you love I wish you luck
For you the world just opens up

Totally just quoted a Miley song. I had a hard time with it due to the recent hair shenanigans...but, since they're fitting, I'll make one exception. ;-)
