Jenny and I met one another in the 4th grade. I was the only Asian in the class, so at the time I remembered our teacher told me to take Jenny outside into the hallway so I can speak Chinese to her and learn more about her...then report back to the class. Little did our teacher know that Jenny already spoke English, but we decided to take the opportunity to hang out anyway. We stood outside for a bit, kind of awkward, but finally got to know each other during our first recess. That was how it all started and we've been best friends ever since.
Two years after we met, after 6th grade, I moved from our small town to Seattle. She remained in that town for two more years before her family moved to St. Louis. From there, she's moved to New Jersey, Cincinatti, Boston, and now resides in NYC. But through all of this, we've remained in touch. For 19 years, we've never gone more than a few days without writing one another. Prior to email, we'd send pages and pages of handwritten letters. Letters filled with mostly news about our latest crushes on boys. Now we email almost daily and I can not be happier to have her be present at my wedding. Friends like Jenny are hard to come by. She's my blood sister...literally! In 8th grade we agreed at a certain time, we'd poke our fingers and let our blood drip out on a piece of paper and then mailed that piece of paper to one another. That was how we became sisters! Silly, I know...but we're THAT close.
Note to self: Jenny and I don't have enough pictures together. I need to remember to take lotso while she's here.
Another note to self: I really like my hair this length...I need to chop this fussy hair off immediately after our honeymoon.
OK, so onto my OOTD. This top was bought at Nordstrom years ago and I don't even remember who it's made by. Probably either Free People or Flounce. I bought this as a clubbing outfit, but it works for work as well! Ha!
