My Friends















































































































I have the best friends, and I have for as long as I can remember. I think without them I would have been an anti-social bookworm, but because of them I did funny things, and trespassed more, and threw more parties than I would ever dream of.

Because of them I don't take myself so seriously, and because of them I feel like there is so much hope for this world. We used to talk about someday opening our own private communities with our families. Katie would be the doctor and Laura would be the nurse. Liz would design the landscape, Heather would be the banker, Maddi would run the community bakery and Tia would teach our kids at school. Chrissy would be the high school teacher, Becca the soccer coach, Danika would do our taxes, and Stacey would be our personal trainer. Bryan would keep us laughing (and teach seminary. She would be so good at that,) Rachael would decorate our homes with beautiful art and I would run the community library, or be the community poet laureate I haven't decided :)

We all felt like with our differences we could keep our whole community afloat. I think it sounds like the best idea ever. We are all going our separate ways now with husbands and school and even kids, but every time we are together it feels like no time has passed. I feel so lucky. Love you girls.

Mands I wasn't having a very good day with stress at work and last day of classes, and this just made me feel so much better about life. I love you and I love our dear girls. Thank you for this post, and it is not too late to start our community. :)

Love this! I feel the same way about my friends. We're all in such different spots in life, yet we can still laugh and talk about everything like nothing's changed.
