Aly and Liam
Aly and Liam are one of our amazing couple friends that we just seriously love to death. They moved away- what seems to be a couple years ago now- to Arizona. It broke our heart to say goodbye to them! They are one of those friends that we always just have a blast with and get along with so well. Aly and I are so much alike, and what I love about them the most is that we are always open and able to talk freely with them about whatever is on our mind. They sometimes disagree with what we think, but what is so special about them is that they never make us feel bad for believing in the things we do.
That's what I feel can be really hard about friendships. Sometimes others don't (or won't) have an open mind to differences that each person has. I have some friends who I choose what I share with wisely, based off what I know they will make me feel like if they have a differing opinion. Aly and Liam are not. We have some HUGE differences in ideas when it comes to some pretty heated topics, but again, like I said, what is so special about them is that I feel like we can have a very mature conversation with each other. We respect them like they respect us.
Before they moved away, we would get together every Sunday and make dinner, desert and play Settlers of Catan. I miss those days so very much. They were so incredibly special to us! But now, we just make it a point to have sleep overs and game nights every time they visit us. What is also really nice about our friendship is that no matter how far they have moved away from Albuquerque, we pick up like we never really left it off anywhere in the first place. Sometimes we don't talk everyday, but when we do it's like no time has passed at all.
I actually knew Liam before I met Aly, and I love the fact that I was with him the night that they met. I never knew what kind of relationship Aly and I would eventually form, but I am so so so glad it became what it is today. I felt so honored when she asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding party!
I just love you guys, so much. I know you know that, and I don't even need to tell you. But today you both were just on my mind like crazy. I can't wait to see you- hopefully really soon!!!
