Before school started in 7th grade, I went to a new school in a new town to tour my classrooms and meet the teachers. I was scared and felt very, very small. I saw a girl that day with blonde hair, glasses, and the same kind of white sneakers I liked to wear. I told myself that day that I wished I could make her my friend. Ten years later, she's one of my best friends and my favorite people of all time. We don't get to see each other much, and I hate that, but I think she knows I love her all the same. Before I left for Montana, she gave me an all "eco-friendly" going away gift that included a big bag of wild flower seeds that if planted, would attract butterflies. I haven't seen any butterflies, but the seeds have been planted and I'm reaping the benefits of their beauty. Callie's getting married next month, and because of school I can't be in her wedding. I'm very upset about this, but I wanted her to know that I think of her every day, when I look at these flowers.
I love you Callie!
