My Summer Roomie

This past summer I met one of my best friends. I have a spare bedroom and offered to let Liz, one of the NASCAR interns live with me. I thought that I was just helping a college student gain experience, "paying it foward" so to say, because so many people have helped me out throughout my career. Little did I know that this unknown person, would turn out to be one of the best friends I will ever have.
Liz is one of the most fun girls I have ever met. We instantly made a connection and I think it's because we're so much alike. She's a spunky, or in her words "saucy" latina from Miami, with a huge heart and a very driven personality. I am so glad that Liz was my roomie for the summer because she helped me explore Daytona and establish some roots here. 
Daytona has been a little sad since she left, and our office has definitely been a whole lot quieter. It's so crazy how you can meet someone and know that they will be your friend for a long time. We have weekly conversations to catch up on each others lives and she has been such a great person to talk to about everything going on lately. 

Today I got such a cute surprise in the mail from Liz. She sent me a "thank you" note, just because, and some "dulce de leche", a yummy candy from Mexico. Everyone needs at least one friend like Liz in their lives.
