I feel friendship is one of the more amazing things in life. These three girls sure have blessed my life, and their friendship means the world to me! Its funny to look back and see how our friendships have progressed. All at their own paces with nudges of life along the way. Somehow, we were blessed to all be together. We were all in Utah at the same time, Emily and Courtney for a family reunion, and Tessa moving, and I at school. It was amazing to have these four California girls outside of the state we call home, because I found myself in a state of utter bliss. It simply moved me for some reason. These are the girls I got through high school with. Now, we're all of to college. strange how quickly time passes. Id like to sit here and type our entire story starting from when I met Emily at a birthday party to Courtney getting baptized, to new schools, new countries, new adventures, all ending in the same amazing friendship. But I fear my words would not be able to get the message across. All I can say now, is that I sure love this girls, and am grateful for the amazing thing in life that friendship is.

Somethings Stay the Same

Remember Tessa Lynn? The one who lives in Spain? Oh. Excuse me. liveD in Spain. Well. she is HOME!! where ever "home" is, she's back to me. That makes it "home". 

Just a few weeks ago I got to see her for the second time in about a year. YES. it was a joyous reunion. Although our lives had dramatically changed, we had stayed the same. I no longer in Huntington, no longer in high school, no longer 17 or 5 foot 8, at BYU with new friends, new experiences and a new life. Tessa starting another new life, no longer in Spain, no longer in Huntington, almost 18, finding a new home, new friends and about to start a new school. 10 months apart allowed so much change. So many things we have experienced, so many happy memories. The most amazing part of this entire journey, is that 10 months apart seems like nothing more than a day spent together. yes. Our reunion was joyous. But our moments spent together feels like nothing has changed. Still my favorite Tessa Lynn. Still the beautiful blond-hair-blue-eyed-sparky cheeka i love so dearly. We are still the cutest best friends there ever was. Now that she is in Utah, I see her just here and there. Super chill. She so easily fits in with all of my friends, and they may actually like her more than me. haha but when together, you'd never know we had been apart. Anywho. now that I've been all musshhhy muuushy, and woopdidoo, I sure to the high heavens love my tessa lynn, and am simply so grateful that she is back with me!

Peace out girl-scout
