a year later…

As I get ready to finish my last week in my current rotation, I can’t help but think about what an incredible year this has been. There are a lot of things I could talk about (and at some point likely will because I have learned so much this year), but as I said goodbye to Maria tonight (she’s leaving for P-town to start law school), I can’t help but think about just how amazing it is that one year after moving here I have such an incredible group of girlfriends.

In fact, just tonight, I was reminded again of when I met some of them last year during a weekend in Rhode Island (some I knew before that trip, but have gotten to know much better since). I had no idea at the time that these girls would become some of my closest friends here in the city.

Reflecting on that, I can’t help but think about just how blessed I have been my entire life in the friend department. Following my “common denominator” logic, I would like to believe that I have been a good friend and, therefore, have been able to have good friends. But I know that there have been times when such has not been the case, and yet I have still been blessed. I don’t know how I would be where I am today without the friendships that I’ve had and continue to have (including my family, as I consider them my best friends).

I’m so glad that when I interned here two years ago, I ended up living where I lived because it was in the same building as Sara and Alisa and, as a result of those friendships, I now have the loveliest little group of friends I could have hoped for. And while some of them are moving on, I am so grateful for them all.

And with the next Rhode Island trip just around the corner, I can’t wait to see what the year ahead holds and the fun adventures we will go on. And I promise to start blogging more about those adventures and less about my whiney pants pity parties.

  1. We were reflecting on hitting a year living here just a couple of weeks ago, man does time fly? I'm glad your my friend Chloe you're awesome!

  2. Aren't friends some of the best blessings? I am so so grateful for good friends, like you!And please don't apologize for the whiny posts, we all do it, and, even though I'd rather my friends not go through hard times, sometimes the "whiny" posts are the deepest and most personal, which really are my favorite.
