25 – Our Sidekicks

In twenty-five weeks I get to marry the man of my dreams and I will have the most amazing family and friends surrounding me. As I addressed every save-the-date I felt blessed to have you in our lives and to watch as our story begins.

At the end of the day there seems to be a select few that have stood by our side, held us up when we were falling, and was a shoulder to lean on. But most of all, were the ears that heard all about how hard the distance was, listened and took sides when we had a hiccup in our relationship, and cheered us on along the way.

You are the ones that will keep us accountable until our wedding and even when that day is 50 years behind. You’ll look back and laugh at all our fun adventures, the times we laughed until it hurt. You’ll remind us how we met and your first impressions of us. Or better yet, we’ll tell you ours. We will keep you close even when your miles apart. We promise to call you every now and then and remind you how special you are to us. We’ll make sure our children choose to have friends just like you were to us. You’ll be the ones that when we look back at pictures we’ll laugh at what we made you wear or how the styles have changed. We’ll smile knowing you agreed to standing by our sides. We promise to never let our friendship fade.

Friends are special, and in today’s world they are hard to come by. But, hands down we couldn’t narrow it down to less then our perfect fourteen. You’ve been there when we needed you most. You’ve listened, you’ve read my never ending novels, you’ve traveled near and far to watch Seth kick a ball or watch me dance, you’ve listened to our break ups and our make ups, and you’ve been there when no one else was. You’ve prayed with us. You’ve listened to our secrets and promised to never tell. You’ve given us some of the greatest advice. You’ve cheered us on and watched our dreams come true.

We can’t wait to celebrate our day with you. You my friends are so loved! We couldn’t imagine life with out you. You’ll be the select few standing there, beautiful and handsome, in green and blue.

With love, Jillian Lane
