Today was a bittersweet day. My best friend leaves for college in four days, and I am sad about that to say the least. We decided almost a year ago that before we left for school, six hours apart nonetheless, we would Build-A-Bear for each other. It was such a fun day, getting to be little kids again, picking out clothes, making a wish on the bear, and we even recorded personal messages for each other inside the cute little teddies.

(We even made t-shirts for them, with our school emblems. Personalization makes all the difference.)
