This is my friend Cree. She is a beautiful girl. She is stunning on the outside and even more beautiful on the inside. Her smile lights up the room when she walks in and her laugh cannot be mistaken for anyone else. We have been friends since 8th grade. Let's see...that's a total of 10 years and counting. I am thankful for her and though we do not get to talk every day, and we haven't seen each other in a while; I know that we will always be friends. Our friendship is solid and not surface level. It does not stem from using one another to benefit ourselves. It is pure at the core. Since I have been in New York, I have been missing home. And going through photos taken last winter, I came across these and just had to share! Friends make the world a better place because they make us better people.
