Amy and Brandon

One of my very favorite people, Amy, is in town from Hawaii with her awesome husband and beautiful three kids. Amy was my bible study leader in high school. We called them D-teams. Amy is such a role model. I wanted to be just like her when I grew up. She had a super fun boyfriend, went to a Christian school, was super cute and fun, and loved me. And I loved her. And still do. Two years ago, John and I went through premarital counseling with Brandon and Amy, and Brandon married us January 26, 2009. It was so special to go from Amy mentoring me, to Brandon and Amy mentoring both of us. They moved to Hawaii with their little boy and girl last year, and Amy had their third baby, Braden, earlier this year. I haven't seen them since they moved, but we catch up from time to time by phone. So when Amy called to tell me she was coming, I was ecstatic.

Tonight we got to chat over dessert and coffee, just like how we used to. And it was great. I miss them. But I am so thankful for someone like Amy. I think about how I wanted to be like her, and I can't help but think I got lucky, like her, and found my best friend and life partner in college, just like her. I got to marry J after college, just like her. And move into the same little condo complex she lived in (that was definitely not planned).

I am excited to one day be sipping coffee and laughing about the good ole days. Amy and Brandon are truly the best.
