Amy came to visit at the same time as my folks, and Ashley came a few weeks later. I forgot what it felt like to have friends so close. I mean, Yes-we talk on the phone almost every single day but having them both here was WAAAY better.
I love each of them in different ways:
Amy has been my friend since I was 15. We met freshman year of high school and never looked back. After high school-SHIT!- we tore it up.. we were just as badass as the bad boys we hung with. She is the friend who knows all my secrets.

17 years old
We have seen each other thru good times, bad times, and everything in between. We have our own lanugage so that we can talk to each other and know what they other is saying when we don't want anyone else to know. I feel so honored to call her my best friend especially after 19 years!

Now Ashley, is kinda a different story. It sounds bad to say but a mutual hatred of someone brought us together (long story). It isn't the glue that binds our relationship anymore and hasn't been for some time but it was definatly a stepping stone on our friendship "path", so to speak. See, Ashley is the wife of Justin, who has been my friend for about 15 years. He was 15 when I met him and was a groomsmen in mine and Paull's wedding. I had heard about her casually over the phone one night while talking to Justin about his love life. His exact quote was "Jen, I think I found-THE ONE". I officially got to meet Ashley in 2003 and we slowly started to become close.

After they were married and Ashley found out she was pregnant with their son Ethan, they asked me to be his godmother. Something I truely charish to this day. Once Ethan was born we started talking almost everyday and fast forward to now, she is one of two of my closest friends ever. I can go to her with anything and same for her and no matter what it is we-never-judge each other.
