There is an unthinkable number of reasons as to why this girl:
has been my best friend for 12 years. 

Here are a few of them...

-We have a routine called "Stanky Fish"

-She's the reason I joined my sorority in college

-She read The Hunger Games (on my recommendation) and then we devised a plan on how the two of us would win the hunger games---she would find berries and grass to keep us alive and I would kill people

-She made on of our high school teachers eat a booger flavored jelly bean

-She informs me of when International Noodle Day is (it was yesterday) and then this happens:

-When I need her, she's there

-When she needs me and I am there for her, she apologizes for not being there for me

-In high school she gave a demonstration speech on the different ways to cut a pineapple

-She knows EVERY.THING about me (more than Jason, more than my mom)

-She cracks up at the word "Werther's" and so do's not even an inside joke, the word just makes both of us laugh

-She didn't bat an eyelash when I suggested going to Disney World for our Senior Year Spring Break trip instead of getting wasted in Mexico
to be fair, I didn't bat an eyelash when she suggested going to Long Beach for Habitat for Humanity the year before. 

-She's the most beautiful person I've ever met (inside and out)

-She is an incredible speller, which is great for me because I am not

-When I suggested we go to "Summer Movie Camp" (a camp for little kids, we were 16) she excitedly said "OK!" Then when I said we should instead make up our own pretend and much cooler camp she even more excitedly said, "Let's call it Tom and Peach's!"

-She still takes "pissed" pictures with me, even after all these years
-Every major thing I have been through, both good and bad, she has been by my side and my wedding day will be no different.
