This week this lovely lady graced our home--Emily Gardner. She and I met our freshman year at BYU. We lived on the same floor that year. We had several classes together and spent a lot of time studying together in the basement. We made up songs (some that we still remember!) to help us remember complicated definitions for our honors psychology class, stayed up way too late, and laughed a lot. We both studied abroad and went on missions and then roomed together at BYU. Now we can pick up like no time has passed.
Emily brought two of her nieces with her--Michaela and Lexie. They really hit it off with the cats and with Liliana:
It was terribly hot, of course, so we went swimming in Boulder Creek to cool off. The Johnsons came too and we had a great time.

We sat outside in the evening, watched the sun set, & got Edgar to take a picture of us.
Here's to friendship, and to Emily, the star of this week's blog post!
