I decided that since I failed last year, I would try to send more cards and letters this year. Last week, I mailed my dear friend Monica a card. She just recently had baby Autumn (in November), and I've only gotten to hang with them once since then. :( I miss her so much and can't wait to see Autumn (and Rob!) again! She's already growing so fast, and it's a joy to watch Monica become a mama. :) Here's a little trip down memory lane...
back in 2006--our first picture together
Monica and I actually met on Facebook before we met in real life: Originally, Facebook was just for those enrolled in universities, and Monica was in a few of my classes sophomore year. I had to miss a few days in October, and I sent a message to a few folks that had added my two literature classes about the assignments I missed. And we never looked back!
This is with our dear friend Katie on Monica's birthday in 2007. We were at the Electric Cowboy, and if you know us, you know that really isn't our kind of place. *haha* Senior year, we were a trio; if you saw one, you always saw the other two. We had so many fun times together (as you can see by this picture)!
For example, here we are at Monica and Katie's graduation in December 2007. Katie is actually now expecting a baby, and we find out this month if baby J is a boy or girl!
And this was on my graduation day in May 2008. :)
Zach and I had a joint bachelor/bachelorette party the night before our wedding in 2009. We went to The Flying Saucer, where we met, with all of our friends.
This was after Zach and I graduated with our Master's degrees in 2010. We were at The Flying Saucer again with our friend Whitney (who was partially responsible for Zach and my match!).

We are nerds. (Hey, we were English majors!)

We all matched!
I just love my dear friend and am so glad my card helped her have a great day. I already know who I am writing next!
