Oh Joy!!! I don't even know where to start with this post. You entered my life in grade two and literally shaped me into the person I am today. I can still vividly remember us dancing on top of my furniture to Kelly Clarkson's break up songs and re-enacting Lindsay Lohan's music videos with my stuffed animals. I also remember how we used to be neighbours and would talk to each other outside our windows. I'm pretttttty sure everyone heard our conversations!! 😂

Once I moved away and changed schools, our friendship didn't change one bit! You visited me almost every weekend in middle school. We would always bike to Metro to pick up a box of mac & cheese or to the convenience store for coca cola slushie and beef jerky.. or BOTH! We would explore all the parks in my neighbourhood and carve our names on a tree or fence to mark our territory. We also took lots of silly pics while we were at it! We would get so creative with our photos by hanging my digital camera on a tree branch, balancing it on a bench or finding a way to prop it up in the grass. This blog was a keepsake for all the memories we made.

Once we entered high school, we still remained super close! Instead of exploring my neighbourhood, we were now exploring the city together! We were constantly on the hunt for the best macaron. If we weren't out and about, we would be making tents in my bedroom and trying to take artsy photos with my camera's flash. 😂

After all these years, it's so amazing how strong our friendship still is! Despite all the new friends we've made along the way, we're still the bestest of friends! You're literally my favourite person to do anything with and also... nothing with! Even though we don't see each other as often as we used to, we both already know that we're going to be here for each other no matter what and that we are welcomed at each other's houses any time!

Joycelyn, you're still the same outspoken, kind hearted and adventurous person from the first day we met. The only things that really changed... is your hair length and height! 😂

I'm forever grateful to have someone like you in my life! Happy 22nd birthday biffle! Can't wait to celebrate many more birthdays with you!!!!!! 💘
