A shout out to the best girls EVER!

This following post is a shout out to one of my best friends ever! 
 Alesha was an amazing roommate! She was selfless, funny, driven, and beautiful. She was always a good example of dedication to right. She was also a great example of being child-like. Now we have all gone our own ways, and I miss these girls more than ever! 
 Meagan was...well...I don't think I can sum up what she has meant to me in just a few words, so Meagers if you ever read this, just know that words cannot describe how grateful I am for you and your friendship. You were always there for me, always! And I hope that you can say the same about me. 
 Amanda was only with us for a little bit, but seeing her and Alesha doing some crazy thing when Meg and I got home at the end of the day made college awesome! Amanda was like our mom, just keeping us focused on life and making us feel amazing all the time.
 Shila was super funny. We were all nervous about who our new roomie would be and we could not have asked for anyone better! Shila was such a good example of strength, in self and in the gospel. She always worked hard in everything. She made us all laugh, and had the patience with our individual weirdness. She was a great friend always there to comfort and just be there.
 We also had Elizabeth join the mix, before I went and dropped off the face of the earth (got married). Elizabeth was hilarious. She added the party to our apartment for sure. She is super sweet and just fun to be around. 

We had so much fun together and they made my college experience better than I could have ever hoped for. They were all angels to me in my life and I will never forget the most amazing girls EVER!

Cara, I need to prepare myself for when I read your blog because I CRY EVERY TIME! Your Christmas one and this one! I really do miss you a lot and I feel blessed to have had you in my life too! I hope some day we can live closer, but until then, just keep staying SO SO RIGHTEOUS! You really are an example to me and I am so blessed to have had you in my life! Love you and ALL those girls you mentioned!
