heres to you, angela

happy 18th birthday.
i hope its wonderful, you deserve it.

six years ago angie passed me a wadded up piece of paper in band class that said "hey." and the rest is history. we've been attached at the hip ever since. i don't think i could imagine life without her. i go to her for everything. we've done everything together. we've dated best friends and we've dated brothers. we've grown into country girls together. she is truly my best friend ever and no one will ever change that or come between the two of us. we know absolutely everything about each other, and we trust each other with our lives. she is the sister that i never had. it doesn't matter what we are doing, we have fun doing it. we've basically grown up together. i will never forget the bajillions of memories we have had together. when i look through the hundreds and hundreds of pictures of us on my computer, i feel nothing but gratitude. i cant thank her enough for all that she has done for me. she's always been there, with every heart break and every argument with family. we complete each other. we can look at each other and know exactly what the other is thinking. we can have a whole conversation just by making face expressions. sure, me and angie get in our arguments and we get annoyed with each other on a daily basis, but we cant be mad for more than five minutes, because then we have to tell each other something. i cant put into words how amazing these last six years have been. my teenage years would have been so different without her. i am so grateful for angie. the memories we have together mean the world to me. when i think of my past, angie is in almost every memory. she's always been there to laugh and be crazy with me. no one will understand how much she means to me.
i love you angie, happy 18th birthday.
