My best friend and co-Maid of Honor Jax shared this hot hot pic on Facebook last night and it gave me all the feels!!!!! I think this was before a school dance circa 2001? As you can see, I was already channeling my inner Stepford Wife, 15-going-on-37, while Jax was really feeling the Britney vibe. (She could probably still rock that crop top, though.) We’ve known each other since we were babies and grew up down the street from each other, and now she has a baby of her own and lives walking distance from both our parents. This photo simultaneously made my week – and also made me desperately homesick, and envisioning an alternate reality in which I still lived close, could take her spin classes every day and hear her in person (instead of via text) telling me to take a freaking chill pill and stop worrying so much. Aside from that daydream (Jax, I MISS YOU), here are the other things getting me through this hump day…
