Zach and I just finished reading The Lord of the Rings together, and Sam and Frodo’s farewell has made me so sad. Instead of dwelling on these hobbits, I thought I’d think of happy things like my friendship with Sara and Celeste, dearest of friends.
Sara, Celeste, and I were born to be best friends. The trials we’ve faced in our lives have only proven it to be so. I was so pleased to spend so much time with them this summer when they helped me prepare for my wedding and so touched when they traveled back to Nebraska to say goodbye to me before I moved to Cambridge.
A few years ago the three of us starting hosting our own summer camp for ourselves, and that is when we first started referring to ourselves as FAT–it’s an acronym of our last names’ initials. Here are a several photos of FAT through the years (many thanks to Celeste for having a compulsion to catalog our lives):
To Sara and Celeste: wherever you are, I wish you well and wish you were here!
