Every Friday I’ll indulge my order-crazed brain in a list of randomness. Welcome to my Friday Fives.
Two of our best friends spend their summers in Logan playing in the local opera/musical theater festival and we’ve been so fortunate to have them greet us to our new home and show us around. I can’t tell you how comforting it’s been having them here during this transition—a sense of familiar when everything is so new. I thought it was appropriate as my first Friday Five to make a list of my top Sean and Wallis memories. We take trips down memory lane every time we hang out, so it’s only fair to let you in on the mix. Here they are, in chronological order.
Our friendship began where all good ones do: school. CCM’s crazy curriculum and nearby bars created the perfect breeding ground for lifelong friends.
This isn’t the first summer we’ve spent together. In 2006, before Joe and I headed to China, we spent five weeks in Tuscany playing operas, riding hot buses, eating pasta, steaks with green pepper sauce, and drinking wine. Absolute perfection.
Wallis and I became even closer when planning our respective weddings. Like a total champ, she flew to Miami on Halloween weekend to help me find the perfect wedding dress and I spent a whirlwind 30 hours in DC celebrating her bridal shower and bachelorette party.
And, we couldn’t forget our actual big days! I feel very lucky to have been part of their wedding ceremony and couldn’t imagine them not being a part of ours.

And, now as full-blown grown-ups, we bond as crazed owners of adorable dogs. My, what a long way we’ve come.
Thanksgiving in the Northern Neck with the Williams family and Hong Kong with Sean:
Looking forward to decades worth of memories with these two. I love them. I love their families. I’d do anything for them. 012, guys — you’re so quality.
