She's pretty funny. As you can see.
She calls me Alisha Pie, or Pie for short. I like that.
And I like her a lot, too. She was one of my roommates in college (shout-out to Sara, too!) and a bridesmaid in my wedding.
You probably have a friend like her. You know - one that you can call up after it's been way too long and talk like you saw them yesterday. One that you can borrow clothes from. One that people ask, "Are y'all sisters?" whenever you're out. One that you can pray with, have long talks with, and cry with. One that fasts with you for forty days (long story) and then at midnight on the last night you binge eat with. What? You don't have anyone in your life that you did that with? Oh.
Well, Jill (I really like to call her Jeej, but she doesn't like that), this little tribute is not just to tell people about your new Etsy store online right here (that's right, go check it out everyone!), it's to tell people about how awesome you are and how blessed I am to have spent such a pivotal time in my life with you. Thank you for teaching me so much about myself and for letting me learn from you!
So, Jill, for all the trips to Salvation Army,
all the Papa John's bacon pizzas we shared,
all the space you gave me in the pew at Common Ground,
all the nights I was actually in bed by 9pm,
all the "What happened to Y2K?" buttons we made,
all the trips to Monroe,
all the 25¢ cones from Sonic,
all the times we watched The Wedding Singer,
all the chocolate milks we consumed,
all the times we listened to Shane&Shane or Jolly Napier,
But seriously people, go check out her store because she makes amazing stuff!
And if you find them, I want those shorts back...
