*This is a long post, you’ve been warned!* I cannot thank everyone enough for simply existing and being such amazing friends! I can’t express how much I’m so grateful to have all these beautiful, intelligent, inspirational and powerful women in my life!! If I can give the world to every single one of them, I would in a heartbeat! It has been a happy, fun, drunk loving, and teary kind of weekend and I wouldn’t have it any other way (except if @ja_mmminn @bfigg760 and Levonne were there 😁) Shout-out to everyone, including my co-workers for actually being able to surprise me because we all know I’m not too keen on them, and shout-out to my wonderful friends who all knew I didn’t want to do anything but went out of their way to plan stuff while keeping it under wraps (not being in control was hard as eff 😫) I’ve got just a little over a week until I get married to my best friend and love of my life but ain’t nobody said the party is over after, amiright??! Nope, the party just got better with him in it 😏😏😏 Cheers to being able to love and bully each other #4ever4life 😍😍😍😍#cornyass#lowang#gallowe#marriagewhatsthat#friendshipgoals#karaoke#nickiminajrappers#samepenisforever#ohno#lovethesegirls#forevergrateful#aintnobodyfresherthanmyclique#lifetimefriends#natsbabyshowerupnext 🤗
Friends like these are hard to find and when you find them, you just “know” they will be lifetime friends. Our friendship started with Oahu’s highly illegal Haiku Stairs. We met in the middle of the night with headlamps, whispering and full of excitement. Then we ran Maui’s 52 mile Road to Hana Relay, we kicked butt and even made the Maui news. Lol! Shortly after Maui we did Kauai’s Kalalau Trail, a world famous backpacking hike on the Na’Pali Coast. That was the most taxing hike I’ve done in my life but I’d do it again in a heart beat, just not with 40lbs in my pack. Haha. Today we conquered one of Oahu’s most dangerous hikes- Mount Olomana and there was definitely some “ Oh crap” sections but before we got back to our car we were already scheming our next backpacking trip to the Grand Canyon. 😁 So many fun times and so many more to come! #haikustairs#hanarelay2017#kalalautrail#olomana#luckyweliveoahu#mooneyfalls#lifetimefriends
Looks who I ran into at the airport. We missed each other when I came to visit her city, but we saw each other at the airport as I was leaving and she was coming home. Some might say it was luck. I say these are the good things that happen when you have been knowing someone for over 25 years. Love you Nicole.
