My BFF is coming!

Cinthia and I go way back. I mean WAAAAAY back. 1985 back. That's the year we met. We were probably around 10. But we didn't like each other at first. Well, not exactly. It's more like we had a completely different group of friends for the first four years. We sat on opposite corners in class, and we hardly ever talked at all.

Cinthia and I, side by side, TOTALLY by accident at that time.

It wasn't until high school that we became best friends. And after that we became a force to be reckoned with! Inseparable! We sat side by side, talked all the time during school hours and still came up with reasons to call each other on the phone 4, 5 times a day! We even had a joke about that. We would call and say: "Nothing..." (meaning, "I have nothing to say, but I called anyway").

In High School.

During our senior year, we were ALWAYS skipping classes! You would have a better chance to find us roaming through the halls of our school instead of inside the classroom. It was a good year!

In college we didn't see each other so much anymore, but we kept in touch.

We ended up going to the same University, although we studied in different campuses, so we never saw each other. Not long after that, we didn't even talk on the phone everyday anymore. We had new friends, new boyfriends, new routines, but still, our friendship remained.

In September of 2000, she was there, at my wedding, as my Maid of Honor.

Cinthia was my Maid of Honor.
She was waiting for me at the airport after I spent 2 years living abroad.
We became pregnant almost at the same time.
We were at each other's Baby Showers.
I was there when her son was born.
My son had his first sleepover at her house.

Showing off our preggo bellies. Our sons (yes, we both had boys!) were born one month apart.

I've been living in California for 5 years, and next month, for the first time, Cinthia is coming to visit me! Yeah! She and her son are staying with us for a week and we are both super excited about it!

We've been BFFs for 20 years! And here's to the next 20! Love you, girl!

PS: by the way, BFF, I spent the whole day digging up all those old pictures of us!
