Today, came home to a package from friend emily (lowercase is to denote that this is a different Emily than previously mentioned; also, that is how she signs her name). Opened it to find a card, cookies, chocolates, a screen print and a sticker, all sent in the name of friendship.
I’m thankful that Parks and Rec created a holiday for ladies to celebrate ladies. But I’m even more thankful to know emily, who met me at the soul-sucking student newspaper more than 7 years ago and has spent the subsequent years commiserating over the challenges of being in our 20s, despite the many states between us.
Here’s to emily and more years and more Galentine’s Days.
