Gracie is one of those friends that as seasons go by and seeing one another becomes slightly less frequent, we always resume just like no time has passed. I find that striking, and so beautiful. That is a true friend.
Gracie and I have known each other since we were nine. We homeschooled alongside one another and grew up together. We began to walk on slightly different paths with different journeys and interests, but the love and friendship never grew old.
Every time we are together, I know we could visit with one another for hours, whether it is talking about our faith, plotting out travel dreams, or planning local adventures. I always leave so refreshed and inspired.
I think we both have a huge hunger and desire to see the world, explore different landscapes, and be engulfed in different cultures. I love that we fuel each other's travel bugs. I hope and pray that someday these dreams can come to fruition.
I'm so thankful for this dear friend, our past memories, and the ones we will soon make.
