Today, my dear friend Emily successfully defended her dissertation! Exclamation point y'all! And when she called me tonight to briefly gab about it, we had a sweet moment at the end of our phone call that made me cry. I always tell you guys how much I love my friends, and seriously – it is not an exaggeration – I will go to bat for them, support them, laugh with them, cry with them as much as they need me to – and I'm so happy to do it because these people, they would do the same thing for me. So, EK – if you ever see this (we're not discussing it because tears are for babies) I am so glad to call you my friend and equally as glad to be yours. Love you.
