I really love looking back over how my relationship with Anneke has grown and changed over the years, we started out journey together three years ago and I absolutely love where we are today! Anneke and I started University the same year and we are in the same program, it was the first week of school when we met and thank goodness for that!
When I look back over where my friendship has developed with Anneke, we are in such an amazing place. We have had highs and lows and we have both grown so much as individuals and we are such a good match to support each other and build each other up when we need it most. Anneke did a semester abroad last year and she went to the Netherlands! I am so proud of her for going and travelling, learning, and I saw her change in so many positive ways as a person from going on that trip. We certainly fell distant while she was away and I was hesitant about reconnecting but thank goodness she called me out for it and we did reconnect.
Anneke and I bonded over our shared love for fashion and style, she is my go to girl for fashion advise and if I am in need of some clothes to wear! She has such a gorgeous style I am always amazed at how stunning she looks. We totally have different styles, but we also know what each other likes and can give the best advice. Anneke also started a personal styling business and seriously she creates the best looks for all different body shapes.
Anneke is the only one from my five that is in the same program as me, so I get to see her almost every day and she is a huge support for me with things related to my program, we have been going strong for three years and we are so close to finishing together! This year Anneke and I have changed so much as individuals and it honestly feels like the more we grew individually the more we became closer and connected. We are both going through a great time in life and to be able to experience life this way together is so special. Who knew three years ago when we first met that we would be here today. It makes me too excited for words to think about how great next year will be together.

Anneke, you and I hold a friendship that isn’t comparable to anyone else, our adventure and journey together is different than everyone else’s and I wouldn’t change that for the world. The not so great times or times of doubt only led us to be closer and stronger together. You are a ride or die for me and I wouldn’t be where I am today without you. You deserve the best the world can offer, and I know with your drive and incredible goals you will amaze the world with what you can do. I love you so much and I am beyond excited to live together next year, we are going to take on fourth year and make it the best year ever <3 I can’t wait to see all the adventures we have next.
