I dedicate this post to my dear friend, Adrianne McBride.
Yesterday morning Adrianne was killed in a car accident in Orem, UT. She has been a friend of Chris since his freshman year and her and I have gotten close this past year. It's amazing how fragile life is. I have been contemplating that a lot over the past 24 hours. I don't mean to be a downer or depress anyone. I think this is just my way of coping. I needed something new to do instead of checking her facebook page every 5 minutes to see if anything new was posted by her friends and family. So here is my therapudic post....
Thank you, Adrianne for being such a loyal and loving friend. You helped me pick out the shoes I wore on my wedding day and the backround layout for this very blog. You spent hours and hours downloading music to my itunes which makes up most of my music library. You were my first massage client and the most loyal. You introduced me to great movies and TV shows I don't know what I would do without. Thank you for your addition to my secrect garden gnome collection. And thank you for all of our lunch dates and girl's nights. I will cherish those times forever. Thank you for loving me and sharing your life with me. I will miss quoting 30 Rock and talking about our girl-crush on Tina Fey. I will miss your comments on my blog, hearing the latest update on your love life, and seeing your latest high-heeled shoe obsession.
Thank you for teaching me about living in the moment and cherishing life. Thank you for reminding me of all of the people in my life that I love and motivating me to tell them that I love them. And thank you for reminding me of the testimony I have of our spirits and what happens when we die. I love and miss you, Adrianne. Catch you on the flip flop.
