Happy birthday to my best friend in the whole world, Christy (the little brat is only turning 27, must be nice)!! Who knew that I would find such an amazing friend through coaching high school softball? When I needed to find a new junior varsity coach I made an announcement at a staff meeting at school. When no one responded with any potential candidates I gave my favorite football coach a call to see if he could recommend someone. He let me know that his daughter had graduated from UC San Louis Obispo and would be taking over a Chemistry position for the second part of the school year and was interested in coaching. I gave Christy my “is this person fun or not” test and asked her if she would like to get together to discuss the position in my classroom, or out for margaritas. When she chose the margarita option I knew that I was dealing with someone I could relate to.
Years have gone by now, we were both involved in each other’s weddings, our husbands are great friends and teach at the same school, we bought houses near each other, we are pretty much inseparable. Christy is one of the smartest people I know, she gives excellent advice and supports me through thick and thin. I consider myself extremely lucky to have such a wonderful friend and I love her so much!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTY!!!
