{ the best bestfriends }

“Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.” 
-Albert Camus

there have been so many people who have impacted my life throughout the years and i really have no idea where i would be without them. i will share a few of my favorite people in the whole entire world with you. brace yourselves for some lovey dovey heartfelt messages to these special people. 




miss melissa sue simpson

this girl is seriously my idol. i hope that when i grow up i turn out to be half the person that she is. i grew up with this lady in the grovecreek 5th ward. at first we were enemies and slowly but surely we became the best of friends. lissa was always there for me and always will be. she holds a special place in my heart and forever will. we have had so many good times together i don't even know where to start. from staying up all night, middle of the night grocery shopping, sleepovers, baby dolls, tyson chicken patties, and eating an entire tostitos pizza each we always seem to have the best of times. melissa is one of the most out going and friendly person who always has a way of making you feel better. needless to say i have no clue who i would be if it wasn't for this girls special role in my life.




tara lynn stubbs

she's a beauty isn't she? i met t in 7th grade at pleasant grove jr. high. we had pe together. at first we didn't really talk to much but by the end of the school year she was my other half and still is. she knows me so well and always says the right things. i tell her everything and can confide in her with all my secrets and she has never once told a soul. most trustworthy girl award goes to her without a shadow of a doubt. tara and i both have been through hell and back together and i feel like we are literally twins. gosh its a good thing we aren't sisters because our parents wouldn't be able to handle it. haha :) i have never met someone who is so willing to help you and that would do anything for you. we can go a few weeks without talking and still remain so close and absolutely nothing has changed. we have had our fair share of ups and downs but i'm so grateful that we are where we are today! i admire her strength to keep pushing on even when things are hard and not fun. forever and always t <3



melanie christene wolf

mel mel mel. i was lucky enough to meet this pretty lady in 9th grade in my foods class. what a lucky girl i am to know her! she surprised me.. when we first met she was quiet and kinda kept to herself and so i just figured that she was just that kind of girl... boy was i wrong. she is hands down the funniest person i have ever met. leave it to mel to make you pee your pants and cry from laughing! i feel like i have known her my whole entire life but in reality its only been about a year and a half. this past year we have become the best of friends. we have been through so much in this short amount of time and have always come out on top. i don't think there is anyone who is more optimistic then her. no matter what is going on at home she always always always tries to stay positive and see things from other peoples points of view. she truly is a blessing in my life and i am so beyond grateful and lucky that i get to call her one of my best friends. 



abigail kate brooksby

abs is my role model. the one that keeps me sane and listens to all my vent sessions and just doesn't say a word even when i get so frustrated and literally just lets me cry to her. the girl who is so crafty has perfect handwriting and is so spiritual. shes my second mom. literally. she mothers me and i absolutley love it haha! abby has such a big heart and honestly gives everything she can to the people she loves. anytime i am having a hard time i can always count on her to be there. 



these girls have been through every little thing with me and i don't know what on earth i would do without them. i feel blessed to call them my best friends and to have them as a constant presence in my life. they put up with me even when i'm difficult and love me even when i feel i don't deserve it. i love them with my whole heart and hope that they will always remember that.

forever and always

{ happy birthday brit }


holy moly am I slacking on blogging or what?! I promise I'll get better now that things have slowed down and summer has begun! it almost doesn't feel real!! 



see this pretty lady standing next to me?! yeah... that's my big sis! her name is brit:) I met her at the begginning of the school year because she was in my clothing class. I've loved her ever since then. 

in January I got put in charge of the preference dance at my school. overwhelming, time consuming, and requiring lots of talent and creativity! this sweet girl came to my rescue as did a few others and made it possible for the dance to happen. anyhow... from the start I wasn't planning on going to the dance because I thought I wouldn't have the time and that it would be too stressful. miss brit didn't think that would be the case and convinced me to go... she was even able to convince Mel to go and that was a huge accomplishment! I did end up going and I really did have the best time all thanks to this girl! 

what am I getting at? the fact that I don't know how I would have made it through my first year of high school without her. She was always there without hesitation and always knew the right things to say to make me feel better. Brit puts everyone else before herself to make sure everyone is included and feels loved.  Not to mention she has the BIGGEST heart and is so loving and forgiving. She's seen me at my best and at my worst and still loves me...

well last week was her 18th birthday! me and Mel were able to go to her surprise birthday party which was SO fun! she absolutely deserved to have the best day and I hope she did! there I had the best pink lemon sour snow cone ever!! (thanks to her parents). she also graduated and is leaving me to go to college... :( sad day!! good thing SUU isn't too far! roadtrip!! 

thanks for being the big sis a girl could ask for! I'm going to miss you so much next year. good luck at college Brit! I love you to death! 

happy sunday lovelys
