When I moved back, it felt like everybody and their brother got married.
And it was awesome. We had lots of fun.
And then, they all started popping out the babies. And that was pretty sweet.
But then apparently, babies change things. My social life as I knew it changed.
So I stretched my wings and met some new people.
And that’s when I met these crazy girls.
And they changed my life for the better.
We went on long drives in Blanche.
And got our craft on.
And became dear friends. Who walked through all kinds of seasons together.
It was wonderful.
They hung around another year.
And our friendship went even deeper.
We talked about God. Our hopes and dreams for the future.
We went on crazy adventures. Talked about life, love and boys.
And then Alyssa moved away.
And fell in love with this guy.
So of course, we went to the wedding.
And had a ball. Catching up, laughing and dancing the night away.
And now she and her sweetheart just moved back to Maui!! And brought a little extra something to the party.
(Sorry Kins, I know it’s not the most flattering shot)
Risa stayed on Maui a little longer. And our friendship went even deeper. We had a blast. Late night laundry chats. Laying in my bed eating ice cream. Talking about everything under the sun.
(I also got to know this amazing lady)
And then in a fairytale, Risa met a boy at Young Life camp. And they fell in love. He popped the question. The stars magically aligned and Alyssa and I got the privilege to help her pick out her dress.
(Ring the Bell, Baby)
