One of my dearest friends (ever) will be leaving the Portland area, and moving down South- to Ashland Oregon. She was accepted into OHSU nursing school, and I could not be more proud of her.
You've been by my side through all our major life's events- first loves, graduations, Backstreet Boys, room-mating, fights, make ups, weddings, 10k's, puking after 10k's, marathons, babies, break ups, forever loves, and acceptance letters into our dreams.
I could not be more proud of the woman you have become, and the path you have worked so hard to walk on.
I hold your abilities and achievements to the greatest of respect- knowing you are changing this world by being the best Lyndsey you can be.
You're move to Ashland is beyond bitter sweet- but do know, every day you're gone, studying, reading, learning, growing; I will be thinking of you, and continually cheering you on, supporting you, loving you, missing you.
I'm so proud of you.
