All good things must come to an end…

I knew today was going to be a really hard day. No matter how much I tried to pretend that today was not going to come it finally came and with it came a lot of tears. I have lived with the same two girls for over 5 years now. They have become sisters to me. They are and will forever be my closest and dearest friends. They have been there when no one else was there. They know exactly what to say when I am having a bad day or when a boy is a jerk or when I have really exciting news. They get me... They are my people. There are not many people in this world that know me as well as Kristin and Lindsay. For this reason today is really hard. The three of us knew that today was going to come. But deep down I didn’t want it to. It’s hard to say goodbye to a dear friend that has meant so much to you and been there for you like Kristin has. Although I am really excited for her new adventure with Brigham. She will be really missed and my NYC life will never quite be the same. I will miss day to day interactions and hearing about all the exciting plans she has for the future. Friends come and go but sometimes I just wish that they didn’t have to. To Lindsay and Kristin, I am so lucky to have each of you in my life. I don’t know what I would have done the past 6 years without you two. You have helped me grow up and turn into who I am today. I thank you for that and for putting up with me. I know I can be a pain to live with at times. I love you guys! Thanks for being you and for letting me be a part of each of your lives!

oh dang. That is rough. I have only known her for like 2.5 years and it makes me sad to think of her leaving us for the better life in Boise...
I know it is going to be rough, she has been such an amazing roommate and friend! Those relations and memories will always be there and it is heartbreaking when it has to end.
Thanks for the call to have me come cry with ya'll in the park after sacrament meeting this morning. Some of the most real times are times like those. While it is exciting for her to get married and move on and be happy, and it is hard to imagine life without her, we'll keep living the good life out here, making more fun memories and constantly reminisce on the old ones. :(

Hey! I knew your roommate in that first photo....can't remember he name but I know she's from Canada. I didn't know you all lived together.

Anyway, totally sad when a friend leaves us. Bitter sweet for sure. You're so lucky you've been able to hold onto such a good friend to live with for so long! Mine always seem to get married off in a year or two.
