My best friend and I have lived apart from one another for almost a decade now. She and I visit each other as much as possible, but life tends to get in the way so we're lucky if we get to visit once a year (although I must confess she's usually the one visiting me). We talk on the phone for hours on end but when we don't have time to do even that, we stay connected through Facebook mostly...Skype when we have time. I actually just found out she will be in town next week so I am really looking forward to spending some girl time together!!
