The Summer of Snow...

Yes, we have almost had a full summer of Snow. Not the white stuff, but my husbands parents and siblings. Seriously though, I have really enjoyed it.
With that being said, the Snow clan has had several events planned this year. We had our cruise, a wedding, reunion and most recent Matt's parents 50th anniversary. This was a great honor to be involved in as I have great respect for both of Matt's parents. I am so lucky to have them as my second parents. Matt's dad is the funniest man and such a fun grandpa. Matt's mom would do anything for her family and both her and her husbands life is revolved around serving their children and grandchildren. They are full of so much love and support.

Best Friends Wedding...

In my life I have had 2 long time Best Friends. Both are getting married this year. The first wedding has already come and gone. This was my BFF Laurie. We met way back in Jr. High. At first I was totally annoyed by the girl, feelings were mutual. I thought she was Little Miss Perfect sporten her large BYU earrings and private school girl BYU uniform (not really, but it looked like it), she though I was this crazy, hyperactive girl who was on the border line of crazy. I think we both just gave each other the evil eye for the first while.
Long story short, we had a couple of classes together and one day The Beatles came up in conversation and BOOM! We became friends because of the same interest. After that we were hardly apart. We had a bit of a goofy relationship and loved creating stories about the Beatles and us hanging out and getting married. We even had a pretend wedding for Laurie and George one day. I could go on and on about our crazy adventures...
After graduation…
