Seven years later

 Seven and a half years ago I met six incredible friends as an RA in the dorms at BYU. +Nicole Murray +Sophie Hill +Mallory Eagar +Beth I +Rosalee Dougal and +Lori Truman contributed to some of my fondest memories of college. We did silly things like rig up pulley systems between the seven floors of our building to send notes about 24 (the TV show) or stuff a large bean bag chair into an elevator and ride the floors saying hi to our residents.














 I was fortunate enough to meet up with these long-lost friends on Sunday in a reunion of sorts. Lori was unable to attend with a sick little girl, and we had to Skype Beth. But it was incredible to see everyone again and see how, despite added spouses and children, some things hadn't changed.













I love that as you move through life there are friendships that remain natural and comfortable. I was amazed at how easily we fell back into conversations, joking and laughing to the point that my cheeks ached. I hear myself sounding old as I realize that there are few things in life I cherish more than true friendship.

It was wonderful to see everyone again too! I also treasure those times spent together at dear old V Hall. Definitely my favorite year at BYU. Let's not let so many years go between seeing each other again!

I love those elevator pictures. It was so good to see you Wendy and to see everyone. I say we should have more adventures in the future!

Funny story (I'm just full of those) but I think I took most of those pics but had since lost them when my computer crashed. I'm so glad to see that they're still around! It was grand to see all of you guys again.
