This past weekend found me in Columbus with some of my most favorite people for a 21st birthday celebration. We stayed out till the wee hours of the morning. Drank too many shots and way too much beer. We danced and sang along with the music til we were hoarse. It was all worth it when, at the conclusion of the night, the birthday girl declared her love for each of us and said "I'm pretty sure that was the best night of my life."
There's something to be said for spending time with the people who've known you through the good and the bad, yet love you anyway. People who will always have your best interest at heart. People who can infuriate you one minute and make you laugh the next. They're the friends that over time turn into family. They are the ones that make this ride of life more fun, meaningful, and unforgettable.
