the best last 4 years in photos

4 years ago I moved into this Dorm



Kristen was my roommate and Christina and Mackenzie lived next door. They would quickly become my dearest friends...



I pledged ZTA and got a twin and a big sis!



Texas had an amazing football season that ended with a NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!





I went through Young Life leader training and was placed as a leader at Dripping Springs High School. I love these friends and loved serving with them.



That summer, I was an intern for Klein Young Life



Had the Best Week of my Life at Frontier Ranch with these girls



I moved into this apartment with Christina, Mackenzie and Kristen and have so many sweet memories of that place



We spent many fun weekends at the lakehouse in Marble Falls



On Spring Break I went on my first mission trip to the Dominican Republic with a college group from Austin Stone. I would never be the same after that trip.



Christina began her Debutante seasons and I got to tag along for lots of fun parties




The next summer I had the other Best Week of My Life with my Drip girls at Crooked Creek Ranch



Then I jetted off to Spain to study abroad for 7 weeks





Just before school started I went with my family to Canada



When we got back from Canada we made two additions to the family, Addie and Bidge



Back in Austin, I moved into the ZTA house with Amanda and Jessica and loved living with them!



That fall I started Nursing school and would be stressed out for the next two years



However, I was still in college and there was still fun to be had. Christina and I drove to Denton to visit Caroline for her Dance Off December Christmas Party.



Had the other Best Week of my Life on a ski trip to Crooked Creek Ranch



Then I took another trip to the DR with a group from Austin Stone



In March I turned 21 and celebrated with sweet friends



Then in May Caroline and I set out on the Grandest Adventure to raft the Grand Canyon



Brad graduated high school and we celebrated in Center Field at the Astros game



I took some classes that summer and full advantage of living Austin



Then I moved into a house with these 6 sweet girls



Caroline married Mark in October and it was a joy to be in their wedding!





Senior year brought the best Texas vs. OU weekend and a triumphant win



Caroline took pictures of us for my parents' Christmas present. Look how big the puppies are now!



New Year's was awesome. No other way to put it.



I went to Haiti over Spring Break and God gave me a huge heart for the people there. I can't live my life the same as I was before that trip.




I have spent the last few months enjoying everything about living in Austin











they have been the best last 4 years...
