bff birthday wishes.

Today is a very special day… Today we celebrate my bestie, Colby!

Oh boy – this could get long and sentimental so I’ll try and keep it short. Colbs floated her way over to me at our first Alpha Phi pool party in 2001 and we’ve been swimming (sometimes sinking) through life together ever since. We shared a couple 5’x5′ boxes in college (aka rooms), a few hostels in Europe, then a dumpy house in an alley our senior year (no, seriously), put lots of miles on The Beast driving to and from Tucson and although we’ve been separated by state lines since 2005, we haven’t missed a beat. Our cell phone bills are ridiculous, Southwest Airlines should love us and thank goodness instant messaging is free.

Anyone who knows Colbs loves her – including Danny who thinks of her like a little sister (she introduced us)! She has the biggest heart of anyone we know and I’m beyond lucky she’s put up with me for all these years – even when I may have been considered a bridezilla. If you were at our wedding, you probably met Colbs… “Hi, I’m Colby – the Maid of Honor.” She rocked at making sure everyone was greeted and comfortable – that’s just how she is.
I could go on and on but I’ll save that for the wedding – her wedding. Yup, my BFF is engaged and is going to be the most gorgeous bride! 
Happy Birthday, Colbs! You’re the sis I never had and I hope you know that the Ting and I love ya more than a fat kid loves a donuts. 
XoXo, Schramm & Ting
