What is the thing you love most about your BFF? Melanie: April has a light about her, a glow which pulls people in. Her dance moves and fidgety ways! She’s strong but fragile, brilliant and humble with an intense love of life and learning. She is the most honest person I have ever met and truly kind, seeing the best in people. We’re complements: I’m a perfectionist who analyzes every detail and April’s taught me let go, that something can be good enough (just send the email already!), that crying and trusting people is ok, and not to worry about what the world thinks. My Mom, who she reminds me of, always said that friends are the family you choose and I choose April every time. She is the sister of my heart and I love her. April: It’s hard to pick one thing, but one of the things I most admire her is that she’s a straight-up idea factory. Also I love how much she loves me, possibly more than my mom, and that’s saying A LOT.
