no introduction necessary...

Me & Crystal, circa 1999
Crystal & me, 10 years later

one of the greatest things about living in LA (there are lots of great things) is that it's a place everyone comes to visit. whether or not they're coming to visit me is irrelevant, i get to see them. and yesterday i got to catch up with my high school friend crystal - we're the type of friends that, even though we haven't seen each other or really even had a conversation in YEARS, picked right back up as though no time had passed. it was so nice.

she's living in rural N. Carolina in a big house, brewing beer, studying to be a registered nurse (she has a 4.0, so proud of her!) and floating around her giant herb & veggie garden, which i'm supremely jealous of. we talked about old friends & new loves, tattoos & travel, our decade of debauchery & settling into ourselves, and i think we determined that we're exactly where we need to be. we always have been. just look at us, we're still exactly the same, only better.

i am so grateful & happy for:
~ friendship that withstands time & distance
~ memories
~ sitting in the quiet night air with a beer & good conversation
~ my present life

xo! n.
