Opposites Attract


My sweet, sweet college friend made this dress for me the summer before our final semester.  She and I could not have been more different.  She was a vegan....I ate a hamburger for lunch yesterday.  She never owned a cell phone because she didn't want the government tracking her down....I just recently got an iPhone.  She liked to hike and sleep in the wilderness....and I....well I like overnighters at the Umstead.  Despite our extreme differences, we absolutely loved each other.  I haven't spoken to her since I was pregnant with Charlie, (I need to hunt her down!), but am so glad that our passion for dance and for life in general brought us together.

What a sweet friend. Aren't those things wonderful when you reconnect with an old friend? You should send her your blog link and let her see you wearing her dress.....or does she not use internet? :) Kidding.
