I've lived in CO for 5 years, yet still I miss my friends. The girls you grow up with, where no matter how long it has been, once you see each other it's right back to what it was. The girls who encourage and inspire, you kept each other out of trouble in high school. Were bridesmaids at each others weddings, and you cried a little at the reception. You can name their children's birthdays, and in general these are the girls who you will always love. I haven't really made friends in CO. A lot of that is my fault, but I do feel left out sometimes. I want to be a part of their little group, but in the meantime, I will just cherish the friends I have, even if they are far away.
