I am very excited to share a little about my friend Joanna… I call her Jo. Sometimes Jo Jo.
She is awesomeness. She is quirkiness. She is hilariousness.
I met Joanna in middle school when I had very little friends. We had P.E. together. She let me borrow her Umbro shorts more than a few times but we were never really friends.
In high school though we became friends and I have now known her for 16 yrs. I am very proud of that length of time considering how friendships can be tricky.
People change. People move. People lose touch.
This is Joanna.
Her facebook “about me” states:
“one nation, under a groove!
good mornin’ ladies and gentlemen…
boys and …………’ girls
this is your captain with no name speakin’
and i’m here to rock your world!”
That is why I love her. She is the most fun person to hang out with. She makes me laugh. She has seen me cry. She has made me laugh when I was crying.
She is a photographer, a dancer, a drama geek, a fashion fanatic, kick ball star, kickboxing chick and wonderful friend.
She has been a part of some very wonderful memories…
I was at her wedding and when I asked if she could be in my wedding she said “I’ll make it happen” even though she was booked for a wedding two states away the day before my wedding. She drove some crazy hours to make it and I will never forget that.
She is that person you can go a month without talking, but when you do, it’s like you had just seen her.
She is… low maintenance, high energy.
I don’t always get to tell her how much she means to me, but words would not suffice to explain how much.
I just love her… for accepting me, for letting me be a part of her life, for being that person who knows where I came from.
I just love us. The us that changes and disagrees and make mistakes and creates things and continues to be friends.
