Nathan and I just got back from a very busy weekend in New York and it was wonderful! Believe me, we were exhausted afterwards, but it was so worth it. We were in New York to do the photography at a friend's wedding  and while we were there we got a chance to catch up with her, as well as some other friends.
Being there and seeing all of our friends made me realize how much I miss them all. After graduating from the Bible Institute, we all went our separate ways. Some of us went to school, some moved back home, some got married, and some even had babies! We have kept in touch with most of our friends over Facebook, but its not the same. At WOL, we all took the same classes together, sat together for every meal, studied together, exercised together, and even went to Wal-Mart together! Back then, I used to wish I could just get a minute alone with Nate. That is probably why ever since Nathan and I got married, I have been content to just stay home and be with him. I didn't usually feel the need to hang out with friends or spend time with anyone else. He was my best friend and he was all the company I needed. But now that I've had that little taste of being with our friends again, I miss it terribly! I definitely don't want to go back to being single or in school, but I kinda wish we could back to being young, dorky, carefree students for just a day. Don't get me wrong, we are still young and dorky, but now we are dorks with full-time jobs, an apartment to clean, bills to pay, and dishes to wash. Being grown-up has its perks, but it has its responsibilities, too.
Right now I'm wishing that I could combine the best of both worlds. What's the plan? I plan on moving all of our friends to the same apartment complex so we can hang out whenever we want! And instead of regular jobs, we will all just be in a band or something! Our kids will grow up together and marry each other and then we will all be family! And for old times' sake, we will still carpool anytime we go to Wal-Mart! Sounds awesome, right?!
So, in other words, David, Steffany, Alicia, and Derek....pack your bags!! I need you to move to Florida!
