While growing up, friends come and go, but it is the special ones that stick around and make a real impact on your life. My roommate Maria and I met at a critical time in our lives, and I believe we will be friends forever. Maria is one of the most unique, sweet, and talented people I have ever met, not to mention that she oozes incredible individual style. Here are two cute pictures of us that I think define our love. To friendship, cheers!
