utah Part 3

When I lived in Utah, forever ago, I met my friend JoAnn. She and I were roommates for a while and had a blast. JoAnn is now living in Idaho, but when I told her I was going to Utah she made the drive down so we could meet up. I thought that was so amazing that she would drive all the way over there for one night.

I had never met her husband before and she had never met Morgan so it was nice that we can now actually say we know who the other is talking about instead of just feeling like we do.
I learned that Jordan does not like taking pictures and therefore rarely ever takes a normal one.
This is the picture I got after trying to do a stupid dance to get him to smile. He may not be looking at the camera, but seeing this smile on his face makes me consider my mission a success.

These guys will be welcoming their first child, a daughter, in April.
Congratulations guys! I'm so excited for you :)

HoAnn it was SOOOO good to see you. I'm so glad that we have stayed such close friends over the years. You and Jordan make a cute couple and I know you were just meant to be a mother. I love you hand twin! I I hope we can see each other again soon.

This whole trip I was really impressed with how comfortable Morgan is with people she just met. She really likes people and loves feeling like she is part of the action. My mom warned that this could be a bad thing later on. I will definitely have to teach her about not talking to strangers.

On my last night in town the Alabama crew got together again. This time Jared asked if I could stop by for a quick visit because his family wasn't quite well enough to venture out, but he wanted to make sure we got to meet up if even for a second. So...a few of us stopped by on our way to kjirsten's place.
Here is Jared's cute family. They are expecting their first little girl in May :)

It was so nice to see everyone. I find myself saying that I recharged my "friend battery" after missing people for so long it is nice when a friend comes to visit or I get to visit someone else. It just makes me remember that even though I am still building friendships here, I do have people that truly  know and love me. Even if they are hundreds of miles away.

Brooke thank you so much for letting Morgan and I come and stay with you. It was so good to spend time with you again. You are such a compassionate and sincere person and I love that about you. I always find myself laughing when you are around and that really is the best medicine. I know you aren't quite sure where the future will take you, but I know that we will always be friends. I love you Squnch face!

Utah sounds like it was so fun! It's so true about seeing old friends and the rejuvenation that comes from that. New friendships are great, but those people that have known you fora long time seem to know how to make everything right! Glad you guys ha fun!
