coming to a close..

This semester is coming to close to soon for my liking! Finals are all next week and life is not slowing down. This semester has been the best out of all of the semesters I have had. The fantastic 4 were back together for the last time (Emily, Lindsay, Ashley, Brielle) Lindsay is getting hitched on Saturday-CRAZY!! we have all been though so much together from our first semester, new friends, failing tests, passing tests, deaths, falling in love, and breaking up! I can pretty much say that we are all sisters for life.
We all got along so well, sure there was little things like conflicts over the messy house or something but somehow even though we are all different we are all best friends. Ashley Bullock and I are the only ones that are staying next semester :( Lindsay is getting married, Ashley and Emily are off track and Melissa is doing her student teacher... luckily the boys are all still here so we can still watch Dr. Quinn :)
These girls have been making me the person I need to be. I don't know what I would do without them. I know that God knows me and he knows what I need and who I need and they are an answer to my prayers.
We always have so much fun together no matter what it is! We are one big family (including the boys Matt, Curtis, Brian, and Travis) This year for Christmas we all drew secret santa names, hung stockings, decorated the apartment and are having our "Christmas" tonight! What a blessing it is to have friends who are like your family when you are so far from home.
So to my Best friends, thank you for the best year of my life. For the ups and downs, the dance parties and random nights! I owe it all to you :) It bites that this semester has to end but when one door closes another one opens. I am excited for the new chapters in our lives and that I got to be a part of yours! :) I LOVE YOU!!
