Last night, I got to see a friend--a very good friend indeed. Her name is Juliet, but for the next 18 months, she will be known as Hermana Hansen.

Juliet and I have been friends since February 14, 2010, when I went over to the apt that she was living in and had a "singles awareness night" with her and her roommates. That apt and I immediately bonded (if you haven't noticed, there are plenty of posts of me with those girls - Wallis, Kylie, Rachel, and Sian-Amy) and we've been friends ever since; however, I was closest to Juliet. That being said, it was a very sad day when she graduated and returned home to Tennessee last December.
Last night though, we were reunited for a brief few hours over never-ending pasta bowls at Olive Garden and lounging around at a friend's apartment. We, along with a select few other friends, talked and laughed, and had a swell old time. From the night, more than just a good time with an old friend, I saw that my friend is ready to serve the Lord and is going to be a fantastic missionary.
I'll miss Juliet, but I wish her all the best and know that she will do wonders in the San Fernando mission and will have the time of her life.
