The highlight of summer

Thanks to my health the summer was pretty uneventful, skipping out on sunbathing on the beach and weekend getaways for everyday odds and ends, but I did have one particularly special plan penciled into my diary. Katharine and I met through our blogs and instagram a few months ago and have since kindled a friendship through long conversations over the phone; sharing everything from our 'poorly experiences' to mutual guinea piggy adoration. Last month we managed to get together and boy oh boy, did we have a good time.

After we finally stopped hugging... okay, so that didn't happen. Correction: Mid hug, we exchanged gifts, enjoyed a spot of lunch and chatted endlessly.
Four slices of dodgy gluten-free cake and three Polaroids later we had already planned a second get together before Katharine returned to uni, as well as oodles of high time adventures for Christmas and the upcoming new year.

Jokes aside, Katharine is such a ray of sunshine in the fogginess of chronic illness. Sometimes in life the unthinkable happens; your health deteriorates for whatever reason and suddenly you're faced with an uphill climb. To have a friend who truly understands the struggle is a blessing in itself, but to find one who is willing to hold your hand, laugh at all the misfortunes and assure you that every obstacle is worth overcoming, is something I never thought possible.

Thank you Katharine for having the unwavering ability to make the tough times that much more bearable, I have no doubt that all the good times we will share in the future will be entirely unforgettable.
