you can say that i love her lots. [and obviously she loves me too]
we got lucky to be roommates the year before she got married, so we had some fun times together. like during the month of October, she sat and watched Hocus Pocus with me 13 + times. who else would do that? we were obsessed. and i love that she was as obsessed as I was.
Sadly, Kate and I only met once as EFY participants, but we made up for those lost times and got to be counselors together for a few years. We got to experience something we both love and enjoy so much- it was such a blast with this girl!
This girl is SO creative. You should see all the scrapbooking things she has, I drool over them. She is so creative. She made her own wedding announcements and her bouquets. Seriously, this girl is amazing. [oh, and a fun road trip partner]
Kate is one of the sweetest and most caring people I know. She loves her family more than anything and always wants her friends to be happy. I could feel that a lot from her when we were roommates last year.
And she got married to her best friend. I can't remember a time when I saw her more happier than when I saw her walk out of that temple. She was GLOWING. And her wedding was fabulous.
We also share the same love for youtube videos. There were nights we would just sit at our computers and watch some pretty hilarious videos for HOURS. and then we proceeded to quote them daily.
I also got to experience my first time at the Festival of Colors with this woman. Oh my word, such a blast and I was so happy we got to share that moment together.
One of my most favorite things about Kate is how much she loves this gospel. You can see it in her eyes. She knows so much about it, and she loves it with all her being. She has been such a great example to me and has helped strengthen my testimony.
I could go on and on and on about how much I love this girl.
She is one fabulous friend and I am SO glad we met many years ago exchanging some tears at EFY. I knew we'd be good friends at that moment. She is sadly now back in Georgia and I miss her dearly. But I know she is happy and I couldn't be happier for her!
I love you so much Miss Katie Claire! I hope it's been a spectacular birthday :)
