Freshman year we used to stay up all night just talking - now, we don't even know what we were talking about but I guess it seemed important at the time - o college. We went from livng together in the dorms to living together in an apartment on campus for 2 more years. We have been friends every since (give or take a couple of months). We still talk everyday - if I don't talk to her I feel weird like something in my day is missing. This friendship is a very important one in my life.
I was a bridesmaid in Jodi's wedding 2 years ago and I am so honored ot have her stand in my wedding.
Here we are freshman year - when the friendship began - seriously she might kill me for putting this on here!
A recent picture...much better.Tambra - Tambra and I also met my freshman year, but not until second semester when she moved on my hall. We didn't become good friends quite so quickly, but it happened eventually. I started going to the church that Tambra was working at our Junior year (and now the church that Luke works at) and that is when our friendship really began to develop. Actually I think we were good friends before that, but I guess us going to the same church kicked it into high gear! She is such an important asset in my life. If I have an important cooking, cleaning, or just common sense question and I can't get a hold of my mom, I call Tambra. If Luke asks me how to do something, (example, get a stain out of a shirt) and I don't know how to do it my reponse is usually "call Tambra she will know". Tambra took me in when I didn't have anywhere to live and we were able to live together for several years. She is such a hardworker and probably the most self-less person I know (sometimes a little too self-less, I have to get on to her about it). I am so excited to have her stand in my wedding. Not only because of her friendship with me but, also because she worked with Luke at the church for a couple of years and they share a close bond, it makes it more special!
Graduation! Woo Hoo! This is at our apartment, you can't tell but this apartment was a little sketchy. I was scared for my life most nights, but Tambra always told me that we would be ok so I believed her. We were ok. Nothing ever happened.
So those are my 5 bridesmaids! All such beautiful, wonderful girls. I am blessed to have such great sisters and friends.
