# the vore-tex 2015

Last Sunday we said goodbye to our BFFs Sean and Wallis after seven weeks of fun, food, hilarity and soul-searching conversations. Pretty typical for us.

I remember when they first got here and I sat down with our festival calendar and plotted out every service one of us had.

Color-coded, duh.

It looked packed. I immediately was worried that we wouldn’t have enough time together. And by “enough” I usually mean every single day when it comes to them. I can’t get enough.

But, somehow, between a slew of services and work, we made the most of every chance we had.

The last concert that we all four played together was a Richard Rogers tribute concert. During the rehearsals I had half-listened to the pieces the horns didn’t play, but during the concert I had no choice but to focus on all of the songs and was struck by the last one, “Thank You So Much.”

It was everything I could think of to say to Sean and Wallis about our time together, especially that it is almost always “something between ridiculous and sublime.”

I might have cried on stage.

I don’t have the words to tell them how much their friendship means to me. I feel like I could say anything or do anything and they would just shrug and ask what we wanted to do for dinner. I love them for their all-encompassing support and care. So, thank you, guys. “Thank you for such a little, but lovely time.”

Here are a few highlights from our summer together:

# Movie Nights and Sleepovers

Last year we tackled our favorite childhood movies from the 80s. This year was all 90s movies. Choices included: Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, Pretty Woman and The Rock.

Movie night sleepovers usually involves trying new drinks…
