Satyra and I have known each other for more than a decade now - fate brought us together in the form of random college roommate assignments at BYU in Provo, UT, and I'm so grateful it did. We've had so many shared experiences, she's more like family than a friend - as a matter of fact, we've had people ask if we're sisters, even though she's, like, half a foot taller than me. She's supported me as I gave blood on a mobile bus, participated in TPing, invited me into her parent's home to belly laugh and eat all their good food, and so much more. Now, as moms, we get our kids together to play and talk about all the good and the hard things. I'm so grateful for Ty and her family! They braved a very cold winter day to take family portraits at Silver Lake in Utah's Big Cottonwood Canyon. The kids were troopers, and I can't wait to meet her new little one, due later this month!
