Whit -

Picture from Marin. Me and my roommates, Marin and Bree. I've been trying to write this post for like two hours and I can't make it work. I've been trying to write it to the wrong people and including too many things. But you're the person I want to tell this to anyway, so I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner.
That invitation I sent you last week? It was for a party like a 90-minute drive out in the country, in this girl's huge, "I live on a Virginia estate" backyard. I have no idea how, but the guest list included like 200 people - and there were so many people I knew! home ward, Washington Seminar, BYU, new ward, it was great. I felt like I fit in. There were twinkly lights, picnic blankets, and cute folksy music playing. And incredible food: pulled pork sandwiches, corn on the cob, potato salad, lemonade, watermelon, and like forty homemade pies. We were there for four hours, just sitting together, totally comfortable. Anyway, the best part, which would be hard to replicate, was out like a five minute walk from the party. They have all these super tall trees lining the property, and they were filled with hundreds of fireflies. When you got away from the light of the party, the trees looked like they were sparkling. Nik caught one of the fireflies, and I held it in my hands. Oh it was SO cool.

I really miss you. I miss seeing you all over my inbox. I miss meeting you for lunch. I miss planning stuff together. ugh. I really miss you.
