But first, let me pay homage to all the friends I have called "best" throughout my lifetime:
In pre-k there was Erica. All I remember is that she had a sandbox in her backyard, she had a dog named snowball, her mom let us eat chicken noodle soup with straws, and she moved to Pennsylvania (where her family was from) before kindergarten.
In kindergarten there was Natalie, she was my best friend pretty much all through elementary school. She lived on my street, we were both kind of shy, and we both loved dance class. We did lots of stuff together and I love Natalie and her family. After 5th grade my family moved away, but our families still kind of keep in touch. Natalie and her mom surprised me by coming to my college graduation party and it was so touching it made me cry. Now Natalie is a married mama of at least 2 little ones.

In high school Desiree was my best friend for sure; we had lots of fun together. We spent a lot of time at each others houses, giggled about guys together, and did crazy things together. I was always so thankful for Desiree's friendship....and I still am thankful for it! We still keep in touch and now she is a beautiful mama to little Christian. My other close friends in high school were Leslie, Karen, and Rebecca.
In college I didn't really have one, central, best friend. My closest friends were Paula, Stephanie, and Kristen, among others.
