the return of aubry ann.

it's been a year and a half since this little bundle of joy left us...

my best-est friend in the whole entire world. aubry ann.

seriously, i can not believe that she is already coming home (she's been serving a mission for the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints)

when she left, i was sure that i would take mind-blowing strides in my life, make small-country sized improvements, and would have traveled the world and lived with indigenous tribes of south america by the time she returned.

but i am not quite there yet.

and that's okay.

i'm excited for my friend to be home. to once again have her as a part of my life.

there was a time that we were inseparable. our first years of college were a time of trial and error. experimentation and naivety. we weren't really sure what was going on. but in a way...that made it more enjoyable.

there are times i can't help but miss those days.

we have seen each other through everthing. bad haircuts, fashion mishaps, crushed hearts, first kisses, lots of heart-cookies, and so many countless 4 a.m. nights of laughing, talking, confiding and just being each other's besties.

aubry and i are complete opposites. she has dark hair. mine is light. she has skin that literally burns the instant it's hit by the sun. mine soaks up rays like a sponge.

she is blunt. i am pleaser.

she thinks she can dance like a black person. but in actuality, i am the one who can lay down the ghetto moves like a sista' from the hood (and anyone who knows either of us knows that neither of us have any such skill)

but we dream.

aubry is tall. i am short. aubry could beat me up (and at times i make her so mad she almost did).

but when the time arose to be there for one another...we always were. i had her back. and she had mine.

we would get in long, extensive debates (and that's the nice way of putting it). our friends might call them 'arguments'....'verbal bashes'....'fist fights'...all the same really. needless to say, we definitely had our differences.

and somehow, we work so dang well together.

cheers to that.

cheers to more nights of meaningless chatter, rewinding the ending scene of pride and prejudice eleven times just so we could feel like we were that in love...and being the rockstar people that we are.

love you aubry.



what should we do tonight?
what we do every night...try to take over the world!
