The Girls Who Lunch [and photoshoot]

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.

The Girls Who Lunch: 
This semester was killer. I have never worked so hard, or put in more hours. Between the hardest Japanese class I’ve ever taken, my first upper level econ class, hours for model UN, oh and the single most difficult class in the political science major (average expected 15 hrs a week outside of class) – it was a lot. And amid it all, I got to look forward to noon, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, when these girls, and often Ben, we would catch up, gossip, chat, vent, laugh, and listen. 
Don’t ask me what I’m going to do without Brooke and Courtney next year. Courtney has been called to serve the Lord and the people of Moscow, Russia for the next year and half. Brooke will also be serving a mission, who knows where. (side note, my cousin ALSO got her mission call – I’ve decided I’m doomed: almost every female I care about has decided to up and serve a mission or move to FL. Its a good thing Carly and Ryan are still going to live two steps away from us.) 
Conclusion: These girls are wonderful. And I’m going to miss them probably more than I realize. There is something about living with people, and then something about not having to anymore and having they still get you. 
Love you guys, lots. 

Courtney snapped a few of me and Ben – for some of my favorites, click here

He even went to lunch when I was in NYC – I love the fact that he’s always been friends with my friends. 

Yes, she’s gorgeous.

This is one of my favorites of the day

P.S. I have been in California since Wednesday and its fabulous. Pictures and updates hopefully tomorrow?


  1. Aren't best friends the best?
    I have two best friends who went into the MTC two weeks from one another, so I know how you feel. They keep leaving us! Maybe it's a hint for me? Haha.

  2. You guys are so cute in your bright tops doing cartwheels and having fun : ) All of my best friends live really far (although not THAT far!) but they have remained my closest friends through it all. I know you guys will be okay : )

  3. You are all babes. And I love the expressions, so cute.
    Congratulations goes out to you!


  4. Do you have a camera man follow you around all day every day??? you always have amazing photos from everything you do! way jealous!

  5. Looks like you have awesome (and very beautiful!) friends! šŸ˜€

    Also, I never realised that young LDS women also went on missions. I thought only men and older married couples did. Heh. I guess that's my Fact I Learned From Blogging today! šŸ™‚
