The "For Sale" sign staked in front of her house. Making it all too official. She's moving. My best friend here. To a really far away place. For forever. She's my hang-out friend. The friend with cute kids close to the same ages as mine. The friend I can call up spontaneously to meet us at the park. The friend who carpools to preschool with me. The friend I call to watch the kids for the couple of hours. The friend whose laid-back personality helps balance me out. The friend who has adorable style that inspires me. The friend I can borrow sugar from. The friend who is an awesome cook and always has goodies to share. The friend with a super generous heart who is always there, always understands, always willing to help. And now... she's moving.
And I... am a sad mess.
