Nashville has been good to me. Nearly five years ago, I moved here for the journey that was grad school and ended up filling the pages of my life story with more adventures than any girl could dream. While things haven’t always been easy or as I wanted them to be, life was kind and handed me more laughs, smiles and a perfect love that I still don’t think I deserve.
Looking back, I should have known the third day I lived here Music City would define the person I’ve become and the person I’ll always strive to be. I would have never felt at home without the love and friendship of someone I think of now as the big sister I never had. Her warmth towards others and ability to make me (and any of her friends) feel like we are the most important person in the world has forever made me strive to be half the friend she is. After counting while packing my boxes, I must have received well over 100 cards from her in five years and each was, and is, just as meaningful to me as the one before.
