Quote describing my friendship between me and my Penpal since 7th grade.

I came up with my quote to describe the relationship between me and my penpal. We started writing in 7th grade. We lost touch after high school. In 2008 I decided I wanted to try and find her again. So I googled the last address I had for her. It was now a business but there was someone with the same last name working there so I took a chance and emailed them. I explained who I was and who I was looking for and asked if they were related to her. Within 30 minutes I had an email from my penpal. The person I contacted wasn't related but did know her. We have been chatting via facebook and email since then.

I handlettered the quote in Swedish on canvase for her as well as another quote about family.
