They Say It's Your Birthday

Today is the birthday of one of my very best friends, Kathryn. Unfortunately for me (fortunately for her) she is currently in Jerusalem. This means I can't throw her a party or give her a call. So I am dedicating this blog post to her.

Kathryn and I met a little over a year ago. We were roommates at BYU. It was totally random, but totally perfect. Kathryn and I couldn't be more different. She is controlled and logical. I am all over the place and a little more emotional. She is classy. I am uhh.. quirky? She hates Italian food. And I love it. (There's a reason she's in Jerusalem and I'm in Italy.) However, we have a ton of the same interests and we just clicked.

We have had so many good times and I have learned so much from her. In the year we lived together we had such a blast. Seriously, the best year of my life. We dressed up as Peter Pan characters, NSYNC member, Hogwarts staff members, and Santa Clauses. We went to St. George, City Creek, and Cafe Rio. We were perpetually single. We smashed a TV.  We were the Pettindsey family. We ate Froyo. We said "praise the supreme!" We laughed, a lot.

That's not to say that it was all fun and games. There were down times and I am so glad we got to go through them together. She always put up with my disparaging boy talks and Italy drama. And I am so grateful that she let me share the best chocolate mousse ever when she needed it.

I thought this represented us well.

I love you Kathryn! Have a blast today in Jeru!
