Katie Jump,

The smallest gestures are sometimes the most meaningful.

Yesterday, you congratulated me on reaching the end of February. A month that I despise and dread each year. But feeling celebrated by you totally removed any feeling of negativity.

A friend like Katie Jump only comes along once in a lifetime. You are intentional, you are kind, you are HILARIOUS, you are honest, you are vulnerable, and you love people so well. I'm so thankful I found you early on in life. I don't quite know how I would have made it through the past few years without your encouragement, fire playlists, and sunshine.

Thank you for being the brightest light in my life, even when you feel like a cloud. 

Thank you for believing things on my behalf when I don't have the strength to believe them for myself.

Thank you for sending me jams that never cease to surprise. Your music tastes are the best.

Thank you for being vegan, even if it's only for 24 hours at a time every few weeks. 

Thank you for loving me really, really well. You always know just what to say.

Katie, you are my sunshine, for real.
