Burres wedding

I remember my first week at APU very vividly. I was placed in Adams hall, the second room from the end of the hallway, with some girl named Abigail. Our hall was shaped like a square with about 4 rooms to each side and on one of our first nights we played a get to know you game with everyone, and I sat next to my roommate Abigail (who soon became known as Abbie) and a girl named Morgann. Morgann was wearing comfy sweat pants and a sweatshirt from her high school sports team. my kinda girl.The next day I remember all going out to dinner to the caf together, where I met Morgann's roommate, Cat. I noticed her because I liked the shirt she was wearing. Morgann and Cat soon became friends with Abbie and I...and we found ourselves doing pretty much everything together. 

The four of us became a weird, randomly close quartet that awkwardly meandered through the hallways of APU. 

We ate together, watched movies, laughed about the boys we had liked in high school, we survived biology as a unit, we sat next to each other in chapel, and we eventually moved into an apartment our sophomore year together where we really go to know one another. We knew who's toothbrush was who's, we knew that abbie always got her trader joe's o's and that morgann loved her rice cakes with peanut butter on them. We knew when each other classes were, we met each other families, and sat next to one another through some really though times. 

Who knew that through our friendship we would be able to stand next to Cat as she married the love of her life (Trevor) and two years later get to stand by Morgann as she married the man God intended for her (Nathan). Such a sweet moment to share with three of my dearest friends. Cat, Morgann, and Abbie...you girls are not only my college roommates, youre my sisters, three of my best friends, and three women who I admire so deeply! 

So with that being said, here's to a weekend full of friends, family, love, laughter, good music, pretty dresses, and a reminder of Christ's love for the Church and His intent for marriage!
