I started my first full-time job almost five years ago.

I was overwhelmed and excited and knew it was the perfect office for me.

On one of my first days there, a new coworker was writing-out envelopes near my desk.

She announced out-loud, "I love writing envelopes to the Richard Rodgers...the Neil Simon...the August Wilson...I feel like I'm writing love letters to these brilliant men...and Richard Rodgers is my favorite, because I love thinking of the kind of things he'd write back to me..."

I knew at that very moment that I had just met somebody who would be one of my very best friends for life.

This past weekend, that friend became engaged to be married.

Congratulations, Laura!
