I met Cassandra on our first year at uni, I was the small town girl 🙋🏻♀️ she was the girl coming from the capital. I was a tomboy, she was a girly girl. I loved our soil science labs, she preferred the precision agriculture courses. Strangely enough, we bonded over our love for fashion and spend many coffee dates talking about our dreams, life and travels.
Years went by, we graduated 👩🎓👩🎓, moved to different cities, got new jobs and lost our regular touch but our friendship grew stronger even when I was living abroad, thousand miles away from Athens where Cassandra resides.
Today, I got the most thoughtful parcel from her containing a handmade wooden Xmas ornament, a card and the cutest Xmas tree shortbread I’ve ever seen, and it brought me into tears because it’s those little things that matter in life, a cheerful text, a handwritten card and homemade gifts ❤️ made with love.
Friendships come in many forms and shapes but those that last through the years are the ones worth holding on to✨🎈.
