10 Years of Summer Sisters

Today I'm hitting the road with my lifelong best friend, Jamie. Jamie and I celebrated our 15th friendiversary last fall by going to see New Kids on the Block, as you can see in the above picture. It was awesome. 

Jamie and I sat beside each other in the fourth grade. We pretended we were married to Dean Cain (Me) and Jonathan Taylor Thomas (her). We fell in love with NSYNC and saw them an embarrassing amount of times in concert. We swam every day of the summer of 96, taking breaks only to watch Days of Our Lives. We took ballet together. We went on our first dates together. She's my maid of honor.

In the summer of 99, Jamie accompanied me to New Jersey to visit my grandparents and go to New York. It became an annual summer tradition; together, we've traveled to NJ/NY five times, to DC twice, to Memphis, Atlanta, Charleston, Lexington, KY, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Charlotte, Virginia Beach and who knows where else. We went to Graceland together, and almost cried! Today, we're hitting the road to go to NJ/NY, to sleep in twin beds in "our" room at my grandparents' house. I am SOOOO excited. 

I've still got some blog entries scheduled to go up this week, so stay tuned. 

We'll be seeing our good buddy Bret, who lives in NYC. 

This is us, at FAO Schwartz, in 2002.
