A few years ago I wrote a song about these three girls. It was about them being kids and thinking about what life would be like when they all grew up. And it was about how even though things would inevitably get tough, they'd always be there for each other. In hindsight, it probably should have included something about destroying hilariously awkward photographs of themselves.

Today feels like a milestone for these girls, as the youngest one is graduating from college and they are all officially adults now. And the girl who, in high school, claimed she was "just not smart" is now a Dean's list graduate of the University of Utah Nursing School, and is about to go on to do great things and change lives.

I'm sure our lives are not quite what we imagined they'd be 20 years ago (I'm still waiting on our connecting houses), and there will be plenty of uncertainty to come. But I'm glad to know that these girls will be there for each other for lots more milestones.

Congratulations, Becca! We're proud of you.


  1. those pictures absolutely cannot be overused.

  2. I absolutely am crying now haha. I have been crying for the last 24 hours in honor of this milestone and don't expect it to stop when I see Moommy and Pappy at graduation. Thanks for the shout out and I can't wait to squeeze you soon!

  3. It really happened! I was there. Hooray for Becca.

    BTW - when I read Poisonwood Bible, I vowed never to go to Africa, and so far I've kept my word.
