This glowing face of my best friend is 4 days away from leaving me. She is also 4 days away from one of the biggest journeys thus far. Claire begins her cross country roadtrip to her new home of Columbia, South Carolina.
For one year, she will get to explore a different culture, pace of life, and (most importantly) food. I'm kidding about the most importantly part, but you get the picture.
We have spent our entire lives living and breathing Northern California. #norcalbabes
all the way. We have traveled and adventured in places all over the nation and beyond, but a part of Claire has ALWAYS wanted to be on the east coast since the day I met her. South Carolina may have not been where she thought she would land first, but it's closer nonetheless.
So, my best friend and sister is leaving for a year before leaving probably for good. The thing is, I am too. Different timeline, different locations. But our friendship, the title of family, and even the blog working relationship has not come into the face of doubt.
Whether she knows it or not, this year will be life changing (as every new road is). She may not be overjoyed everyday, but each day will be a blessing and adventure regardless.
You're gonna kill it babe. And you're welcome for making final cross country wardrobe decisions. I look forward to our Skype dates and meetings.
All of my best wishes and love,
