When Chris and I picked a date for our wedding, I told my childhood best friend, Keisha, all about it. Keisha and I have been friends since 2000, back when we both lived in our hometown of Cebu City. The last time I saw her in person was in 2007, right before my family moved to California. Through the years, we kept in touch through emails, annual care packages and eventually, simply through FaceTime and social media.
After mentioning my wedding plans, she talked about how she’d love to be there on my big day – the next thing I knew, she had secured the days off AND managed to book a ticket to California! On the day of her arrival, I picked her up from LAX with my cousins from Canada in tow (Angie and Krystle). Our first order of business was definitely In N Out!
We spent a good week catching up, trying out new food (hello, Popeye’s chicken sandwich), driving to the mountains at the break of dawn and getting dolled up for my wedding. If there’s one thing I learned, people change but good friendships last forever! Extremely thankful my best friend and I were able to share this milestone in my life. Looking forward to our next adventure together!
