Way back in March I started this series, with a post on my darling friend Naomi. Since then many names have gone on my list of people I’d like to feature in one of these posts but life and love and work and moving have conspired to stop the series progressing. But tonight, finally, I can tell you about my second member of the gang.
The lovely Jenna! (a.k.a. Jenga….um…..if you’re me!)
Jenna and I became friends when I moved up to Forres for the last two years of high school, bonding through a love of singing, a class we took together (Jenna’s younger than me, but we took Art module together. Man, I sucked at that class. I was too busy being all angsty and teenage!), and a mutual friend. We got on well, but when I went off to uni, drifted apart. As you do.
However, five years later, we found one another online….I think it was myspace?…and got to chatting about memories of our silly days in Euphoria, what we’d been up to since school, music….the whole shebang. And slowly but surely the friendship rekindled.
Over bottles of wine in Edinburgh and chats on facebooks, silly postcards and flying visits we once again became each others silly, kooky friends.
And how blessed I am to have a friend like Jenna. She’s clever, funny, and witty. She’s fiercely loyal, but also the kind of friend who won’t shy away from telling you the truth, even if it isn’t pretty. She’s wicked talented, possessing a truly beautiful voice (which just goes perfectly with her beautiful heart, as is only fitting).
She is a girl in a million, and I’m so glad to be part of her life and have her be part of mine. And I cannot wait to be her bridesmaid come October. Just one question, Jenna – as it’s in Texas, can I wear a Stetson?
Love you honey!
PS Part three….soon….
