it's flashback friday heeeeeyyyy

so for today's edition of flashback friday i'm gonna take you back.  way back to the year 2000... and 1.  yes.  in 2001, sam & i didn't even know each other, & to make things more interesting, we were on opposite sides of the world.

sam was serving an lds mission in sydney autstralia, & i was a senior in high school.

sam's on the right here, passing under the harbour bridge.

he's in the middle in this one. behaving like a respectable missionary should, of course.

i was busy doing very important things, like ummm... being a senior in high school, & pretending to be a cheerleader.

i did cheer my senior year with some girlfriends just for a good time. i wasn't a hardcore "cheering is a sport" cheerleader by any means, & didn't take myself too seriously. it was a blast.

every teenage girl spends time day-dreaming about what her future husband is gonna be like. i love looking back & knowing that while i was doing my thang back in ha school, he was wearing his white collar shirt, & little black tag, & being a good mormon boy. makes me happy.

we have since gotten to return to sydney & visit some of the people & places of sam's mission.  best. trip. ever.  seriously not sure we will ever be able to top that.  i for reals left my heart in australia & really really hope we get to go back some day.  uh-mazing.  everything about it.

anywho, that's it for today's little trip down memory lane.  now back to living in the present... i think i hear p-ray waking up from his nap.  that's one way to be snapped back to reality.
