July 30, 2005

Today in the mail, I received a wedding invitation from my good friend Brian. I have known Brian since the fourth grade, when he moved to Richland from California. I remember one time during P.E. I accidentally took his jacket – we had the same one. Brian and I would then go on to the same middle school and high school together. Some say hours and hours of Goldeneye forged our friendship, but I would like to think we would have become friends anyway.

Through the years, we remained friends. We would double date on homecomings and proms and we spent countless hours driving in his green truck and my 1978 Ford Thunderbird. We saw a million movies together and ate excessive amounts of food and soda. During college, Brian went on his mission to Italy and he was gone for two years. However, he had the ability to email once a week for an hour and he would always send one – which is ironic because he had greater email communication when he was a world away, instead of a state away. Being back from his mission and especially being back from Italy, he was quite a catch – now he is getting married to a girl named Traci. See photo below.

I leave for Salt Lake City on August 17 and the wedding is on the twentieth. This wedding experience makes me wonder where time has gone. It seems like yesterday I was in elementary school wearing the wrong jacket or at a basketball game, playing in the band. Life moves so quickly and we forget how far we have come. Congratulations to Brian and Traci.
