Yesterday was such a lovely Fall day. I didn't have to work because it was Veteran's Day which was wonderful. I got to spend time with one of my dearest friends, Sarah. It had been far too long since we'd spent any real time together. And seeing as she became engaged recently, we decided that time must be made to see each other, catch up, and talk and laugh away the afternoon. I couldn't be happier for her and her future husband.

I met Sarah four years in student leadership training and we quickly became like sisters. That was in August and we were inseparable that entire school year. I don't think a day went by that we didn't see each other, except when we went home for the holidays.

(us as little babies.)

It was strange, everyone thought we were sisters. Some even thought us twins. And one girl thought we were the same person for like three weeks (she obviously wasn't very observant since we were together most of the time).

(a few years ago)

Sarah is one of those friends that I know I will have for all of my life. She is the kind of friend that you don't have to be with constantly, but you know exactly what you mean to each other. And even though I don't get to see her very often anymore, things are the same as they always have been between us.

(we love coke, and we like to drink it when we get together)

She asked me to be a part of her special day by being one of her bridesmaids. I was overwhelmed with joy when she asked me. I cannot wait to help her prepare for and celebrate this day. She's also a crafty one and I know that we have lots of fun wedding-craft days ahead of us, which I am totally looking forward to. I already have millions of little ideas, its going to be so much fun. I love you Sarah.

(I can't believe I don't have any recent pictures of the two of us. I should work on that.)

Love this post. Reminds me of many happy memories of days spent with both of you. Yay for Alpha bringing people together... for a season and some for life. So glad you and Sarah are still such close friends.
