My beautiful friend Linda and I met in 1984, I believe. That would mean I was 4 and she was 2. Needless too say, quite a long time ago. I remember, vaguely, playing with her back then, but not super well.
It was probably after we both graduated from high school that we became close. We started spending more time together doing some of our favorite things - shoe shopping, purse shopping, watching chick flicks, and exchanging books. We also were on the same worship team for a year or so.

How would I describe Linda? Caring, loyal, and fun all immediately come to mind. She's a very caring, giving person. She loves her friends and family fiercely. She also loves having fun.

The day I planned on asking Linda to be in my wedding, she told me news instead - she was moving to Baltimore for a year! She was accepted to Johns Hopkins to pursue her masters in public health. I was sooo happy for her, but assumed that meant she would not be able to come home for the wedding. Well, she said she could still come! So of course, the only sensible thing to do that night was to go buy bridal magazines and spend the rest of the night looking at bridesmaid dresses. Come September, she flew in and got in early enough to run an errand for me before rehearsal...... I was in crisis mode. :) Then she somehow went from having extra time before rehearsal to being way late for rehearsal. Still not sure how that happened. :)
