My Best Friend Hannah!… by Taylor

It’s been a while since I’ve written, and it feels good to be back and express all the good and sad things going on in my life. Today I would like to write about my best friend, Hannah. No one could beat her. I’ve written about her before, but I feel like she deserves to be written about again.

We were friends a few years ago and then lost touch with each other. If you read my other missive, then you know this. During the summer, we started hanging out again and almost immediately became close friends again. To be honest, we are closer now than we’ve ever been. We see each other at least once or twice a week and try to get together more often than that if we can. If we go three or four days without being around each other, then it feels like it’s been weeks.

She has helped me overcome some of my darkest moments. I used to feel like I had nobody until she came along. I lost my old childhood best friend and thought I wouldn’t be able to find someone else. Once we started hanging out, I knew she was going to be my “4Liferâ€. I can’t count the number of times I have prayed that we never lose each other.

We are always there for each other, helping each other with school drama, family problems, and so much more. I know she will have my back no matter what, and she knows I will always have hers, too. I never realized I could be so close to someone that wasn’t family. Actually, it feels like Hannah is a part of my family.

We have an inside joke, and we can’t help but laugh when we share it. We make fun of each other but love one another for it. We lift the other up when they feel down or insecure. We get mad at the other when we’re self-critical, and we make the most of our time together. We push ourselves to the limit to help each other. We have trouble just being mad at each other because we feel like we could then lose our best friend.

We made plans that when we finish college; we are going to buy a bus and make it a recreational vehicle to use in traveling. Hannah wants to make it “boho†themed, which is like a hippie theme. To be honest, she is way better at decorating than me, so I’ll let her do whatever. We want to travel the world together. Then, we want to settle down in our thirties to make our own families and live our lives.

I’m planning on making a bucket list for us. We can do all the things together that we never thought we’d do. She is the one person who I feel like I could do anything with.

I can’t wait to order her a Christmas present and then watch as she opens it. I also want us to have a winter photoshoot. Christmas is my favorite holiday, so I am so eager for it to arrive. I also want it to snow like it did last year too.

I hope that we always stick together and never become too distant. She is one of the best things to happen to me and I will always try my best to hold on to her and not let go. I hope everyone finds the friend they need, like I did with Hannah.

I would also like to let Hannah know I dedicate the song “Count on Me†by Bruno Mars, to us 🧡.
