Ryan Moved In!

I am so excited that my house is officially at "max capacity" with the arrival of one of my all time besties, Ryan! I know, you may be thinking "what is this crazy girl doing?! Running a hostel!?" Well, no... but kind of! Colleen will be with me till the end of the summer and Ryan will be here till she leaves for her trip of a lifetime to Europe! 

Ryan and I have been friends since 7th grade.  Well, technically we were friends before that, but we joke each other and say "We weren't friends until you moved back from Japan!" But I will never forget, Ryan was at my house for a sleepover a few nights before we moved and that's when the true friendship started :). 

Lets take a look back at our friendship with the help of some great (but maybe embarrassing) pictures!

We have celebrated Sweet Sixteens,

Been to countless homecomings, proms, and Cotilions,

Seen probably over twenty country concerts,

Taken some really hilarious pictures,

graduated from high school and college together,

explored the world outside our little bubble to Cancun,

learned how to snowboard, went on hikes, and embraced everything that JMU offered us,

celebrated our 21st birthday's together,

stood by my side on one of the biggest days of my life,

and made trips to Nashville to take in the full experience of Music City.

Needless to say, our lives have been shaped around each other and I wouldn't have it any other way.  I am so thankful for such a great friend in my life and let me tell y'all, I landed the friend jackpot with my girls.  I have some of the best friends in the whole wide world!

I am so excited to have Ryan in the house for the next few months and cannot wait to continue this journey with her!

Now head on over to see my blog sponsor, Alysse!
