When I was 18, I graduated high school and high tailed it to Utah. I knew I wanted to go to college, but the whole financial aid thing didn't work out and I had to wait a year (to become a resident) before I could go to school. Despite this, I knew Utah was where I needed to be. Unfortunately, not being able to go to school presented a living situation problem. I wasn't going to be living in the dorms, I knew that, but who would I live with?
My sister went to the University of Utah and put an ad for a roommate on the bulletin board at the Institute. While she was there, she ran into Andrea who was from Colorado and also looking for a roommate. They exchanged numbers and Andrea and I talked on the phone and stalked each other on Facebook. There was no way I was going to live with someone who didn't like punk/emo music, obviously. Haha. After deciding that she looked alright, we decided to room together. We still needed a third roommate though.

Robyn came to visit this week for her brother's wedding and the old 9F Crew decided to get together. Unfortunately, Natalie is couldn't make it (she's too busy being a glowing newlywed in San Fran), but we still met up.
Getting together felt so right. We all just slipped back into our friendships. We talked about everything and anything. We reminisced and laughed and felt a little sad that those days are gone. We are all happy in our lives, but we are all so grateful for those brief years we had as best friends and soulmates. I know none of us will ever forget those amazing times.
Now for pictures of our reunion!

And there you have it! Everything you could ever want to know about my best friends! Do any of you have a group of friends that it just feels right to be around, no matter how long it has been?
