Then and Now

This is Amy. Amy was one of my best friends beginning about my Junior year of High School and extending until I was a part of her wedding in April of 2008. She now lives with her new best friend: her hubby, and her new baby, Caleb, now 8 months old. She blogs about life as a Christian stay-at-home mom and pastor’s wife. She is one of my favorite people.

Anyway, Amy and I have always both loved writing. She actually majored in English (or something more specific, correct me, Amy) and was considering going into editing as a career before she settled down with her family. We have both been writing since we were little, and began our blogging careers in high school. This meme she posted a few days ago was something we did back in high school. I had to do it too.
