What up, Kate? I think you’re awesome.

This is my friend Kate. And her bf Tom. And me.

That’s her 4 years ago.

This is her last summer.

That’s me and my bests. Last summer. I love them.

Anyways, back to Kate. This is the thing: she’s amazing. wonderful. She’ll watch an entire season of any TV show you want in one sitting, ice cream and snacks in hand. She’ll also finish an entire tub of hummus and celery sticks with you on her roof over a pitcher of sangria. She’ll also go to the museum with you, and have something intelligent to say about just about every artist there. And even artists who aren’t. She’ll watch Oscar-nominated films, indie films, and bad chick flicks with you, and enjoy them all. She’ll defend you to the death, cut someone with a shank for you, if she needs to, and makes sure to always say “please” and “thank you” and “Is there more coffee?” She’s pretty much my fave. And she, my friends, is also a ridiculously talented writer. (I know, you’re not surprised. I wasn’t, either.)

She has been published here. Go read it. I’ll wait.

SO good, right? I just love her. Check her blog out, here. She’s totally worth it. I promise. (Like an extra set of crunches, or that extra handful of cranberries on your morning cereal, or that last episode of Full House about the time they lose Comet.)

You can thank me later.


About sorellaaglio

I am 26. I love nature. I love trying new things, and I love children. I love cooking, baking, and sometimes even cleaning. I am an organized mess, and yet manage to eat three meals a day and get eight hours of sleep a night. If you stop by, I'll feed you and make you a mixed CD. Oh, and I am a fan of you.

    I WOULD cut someone with a shank for you. You are correct.

    This made me cry. You are so amazing. I miss you so much.

    She’s a very good writer. Though I would argue (obviously) that getting married is not about checking of a box and getting some sort of validation (well, at least not for everyone. There are obviously ladies who freak if they’re not married by 25 with a bun in the oven, and I don’t like those ladies.) There are a lot of things I want to do and none of them are any less possible after Travis and I get married. Or more possible. They are unrelated. Our commitment is already there, whether or not we “rush” to get married isn’t really relevant: the wedding is about gathering up everyone we love and having a party. The marriage is about letting me into the hospital room if there’s an emergency and possibly making our taxes less complicated. I understand when people don’t want to settle into a serious relationship just yet, because they want to travel/”find themselves”/sleep around/whatever, first. But once you’re IN that relationship, shit doesn’t change that much when you get married- once you’ve found a person, it’s just a matter of when you feel like having some cake.

    Woah to JP who wrote such a sweet blog about an amazing person.

    And Woah to Katie, who is not only a published writer (yay!) but a smart, funny published writer (those are my favorite kind) Great piece, Kate. And now I’m going to stalk your blog.

    I miss you both and I’m glad that you seem to be doing well and that you have each other!
