Roommate Withdrawl

Okay people, there is a good 87% chance that I am going to cry sometime while writing this post. Why you may ask? 

Because this Amy and my last roommate post EVER. These pictures were the result of our final photoshoot up at school before graduation. 

Amy and I were roommates for two years in the dorms and then this past year we lived in our lovely house off-campus. The day she moved out, I was a great heap of emotions. This was the last time we would probably live together. Three years sounds like awhile, but it definitely went by in a blink of an eye. 

Who is going to tell me I have a Pyrex problem? (Really everyone should, but she voices it.)
Who will listen to my boy woes? 
Who will laugh uncontrollably with me after drinking a glass (or two) of wine? 
Who is going to wake me up at 5 a.m. during Mountain Day? 
Who is going to be my swuggle buddy?! (I could explain, but I'll just leave you guessing.)

 See somewhere in those three years, we went from roommates to best friends. 

AJ, I love you so much and words cannot describe how much I appreciate and enjoy your presence in my life. 

Thanks for always putting up with my crazy.

I'm no Amy, but I'm totally willing to scour Elgin for every good thrift shop they have. Promise. B-) See you in TWO MONTHS!

Aww man, that's so sad! But how incredible to have such a roommate, right? That's awesome :)
Love her outfit, and that swimsuit matches so perfectly with the skirt!
You look adorable in your polka dot top and red lipstick too

You girls both look so cute! I'm sure there will be more fun times ahead I used to feel the same with one of my closest friends/roommate but now we have both moved on and have our own little families. Different chapters bring different joys and responsibilities (:

Awww <3 You both look fantastic! I know what it's like to have a roommate you simply adore and who has really become your best friend of all time. It's hard to go your separate ways, but my former roommate and I have managed to keep in touch and see each other in person even though we live in different states now. I've known her for 13 years. She's the best! I hope you guys keep the bond strong!

So sweetly bittersweet! It's such an exciting time, but still a wee sad to say goodbye and go your own way after rooming for so long....I can remember feeling like that too! Anyhow, you both look so lovely and summery. I love your shorts outfit and her swimsuit / skirt combo is perfect too!

Aw, I hope you guys will be able to visit! Losing a roommate sucks, especially one who is such a good friend! :)

You guys look wonderful!!

Brittney said...

It's sad that you two have to part for now, but I hope that you two can meet up in the future and continue your friendship. If it's any consolation, you two look great, and I'm sure you'll look back at this landmark outfit post and reminisce.
