This weekend I had the amazing privilege to finally meet one of my very best friends for the first time. His name is Ben, also known as @macerswiftie on tumblr! He is truly all sorts of incredible. We’ve been best friends since October when I harassed him on tumblr to reblog a picture of me in my dress for 1989 Tampa. We followed each other’s blogs and the rest is history :)
Ben is one of the sweetest, funniest, most loving people to ever come into my life. I am so thankful that I get to even be internet friends with him, let alone best friends who make scenes in Starbucks and geek out over you together. The past three months have been the toughest of my life, between losing my little sister, beating an addiction, and fighting late-stage Lyme. I couldn’t have made it this far without him, Taylor. He always checks in on me, encourages me when I’m down, and he makes me laugh EVERY DAY. He jokes about us getting married and once went to a monogramming website and put “She lost him but she found Ben and somehow that was everything” on cloth napkins and I still haven’t recovered from laughing. (About the napkins, not the marriage. He’d make a bomb husband.)
Thank you for bringing such a wonderful person into my life when I needed it the most. I am forever grateful.
