As the Years Go By, I’ll Think of You and Sigh…

I cannot begin to say how much Alpha Gamma Delta has blessed my life.  I am so incredibly humbled that one of my sisters would want to come visit me so much so that she would ask for a trip to fly all the way up here as a gift from her parents.  I’m astounded that her parents sent her up here, let alone even considered it!

This began Miranda’s journey to the frozen tundra of Quebec! lol  I tried to show her all of the major highlights of Montreal, like the Old Port…

and Notre Dame Basilica…




and St. Joseph’s Oratory…



We also managed to squeeze in some snowboarding while she was here!



We had so much fun, and it was really a gift to have Miranda come visit.  I never would have guessed it, but being so far away is teaching me what sisterhood is all about.  Peace. Love. Epsilon Pi.

I want to linger, a little longer, a little longer here with you.  It’s such a perfect night. It doesn’t seem quite right, that this should be our last with you. Our roses and our pearls, our purpose and our squirrels, college days and friendships true.  And as the years go by, I think of you and sigh. This is goodnight and not goodbye.

I’ve Been Saved by the Grace of Southern Charm

I miss the South.  A lot.  And I am very thankful that Brian and I got to go back to Georgia for Thanksgiving last week.  It was great getting to see my parents and spend time with my sister.  We, luckily, had a few opportunities to hang out with friends too.  Between our early flight, staying out late, and black Friday, it was a very tiring, but well worth, trip.

Mischief Managed

I’m a little late on posting about this, but better late than never!

A couple days after Brittany’s wedding, I went with my cousin, Stephanie, to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando.  It was absolutely magical!  I felt just like a little kid walking into Disney World for the first time; I got goose bumps and was on the verge of tears!  According to my dad, this was our ‘nerd day,’ but we didn’t care!  It was an absolute blast!  The attention to detail is unreal!   Here are a few of the highlights!
