Five years ago this weekend


Some of my best girlfriends and I came to New York for spring break in my last semester at BYU-Idaho. I look at these girls and wonder what they would have thought if someone told them what the next five years held. One would be married, a home owner, spending weekends on their boat and expecting their second baby. One would have followed a boy to LA, broken up, found another and gotten married, and then moved to Utah, back to LA, and then planned a move to New York. (Which happens next week!) One would have ended up marrying the guy she was dating off and on at the point this photo was taken, and then had two babies together. One would go through some huge heartaches, travel the world, be a bridesmaid in two of these girls' weddings, and be living happily in New York, working on Wall Street during the financial crisis of 2008. And another would head back to her roots in Texas, living happily with her boyfriend.

Thank you Shantay, Aimee, Jordan, and Toni for such amazing memories I will have forever. I still think of you all and the fun we had when I pass by the Milford Plaza, Waldorf Astoria, Sbarro's, and the Statue of Liberty.

It is amazing where life takes you! But I'm struck by how many of these people were married with multiple kids just five years after finishing school! I'm so grateful to have had five years (almost) of marriage before babies. The end. ;)
