A salut to my lovely friends.

To you who have been there since birth, most literally- I am so proud of you. You are exciting, intelligent, wonderful! I know my being proud of you may seem odd, but I am. I see it as a privelage to be reunited with you, and I apologize that we fell apart for those years... I'm so glad we're back. And I can't wait to see what happens next!

To my friend, who has bestowed on me an honor I am truly humbled by- you are beautiful. I know that your wedding will be amazing and that your life together will be wonderful. I am here through thick and thin and I mean that with all of my heart. You have put things back together- those things that fall apart in all of us- and you've done an amazing job. Congratulations on many levels, and don't forget to stay Nsync.

To my sea fairin' maiden- aloha! I miss you! I hope you are well and I can't wait to see you again! I think of you so often- I miss our crazy times together, our movies, our cereal at 1:00am and our "truant" habits. I am proud of you- you know that, but I won't stop reminding you. It is amazing what you've done- you are taking live in your hands and I can't wait to see where your next adventure takes you!

To my love- what to say! You are probably one of the only ones who will read this, and knowing that makes it harder to say something meaningful. I love you, I suppose there's a start. And I have faith in you- I know things have sandpapered at times in recent history and I can't imagine how hard that is, but I am proud of you for smoothing things out anyway, doing what is right for you, making decision that will benefit you. I can't wait to see what God has in store- great things, no doubt. You will make an eternal difference! And you've made a difference in my life, and I have learned so much about love with you!

To the girl I live with- I'm so glad it's you! I am relieve, and I know at times I get irritable, but I am happy you are my friend, roommate, everything! And I know our adventure will be unforgettable, I'm so glad you'll be there with me!

Well, I'm spent for now. More later. Sorry for the cliches, know they are genuine.

Almost exactly a month later, I return!

Quick update:
Thanksgiving was AWESOME! I saw the fam, the boy, the bed, the state- what more could I want?
Visa is nearly complete- one more form and I am official!
November is over.
December is here. Finals are here.
Status of large Italian presentation: completed successfully.
All other projects/finals: in the process or looming.

So there we have the update! Lovely! Things are good! Yes, yes they are. As the weather turns crisp and I await my first New York snow (my first snow of the season was enjoyed in Utah !), I am ever-expecting. What? Well, why shouldn't I be expectant? I am twenty years old, I am in college, I'm going to live in Italy, Christmas is nearing, I'm growing in my faith, I love my boyfriend, my friends are well (though some crazy, we knew this...), and... God is doing amazing things every day. I guess I'm waiting to see, expecting to be used.
I'm tired, so that is as far as I go, but I'll try to be better. Really.
