Time for another trip down Memory Lane my friends, won't you join me? Freshman year of college, Oregon State. My dear friend Katie Campbell invited me to a BBQ with her and her co-op. I decided to meet up with Katie before the BBQ so I could walk in with her. Katie had brought a friend with her, her name was Kylie. As I'm approaching these two girls I yell out to them "Hey Katie, it's me Katie Moon hey, Heyyyy, HEY"!!!! Immediately Kylie bursts out laughing and I knew right then and there we were friends. Anyone willing to laugh at my jokes was a friend of mine. I quickly learned that not only was Kylie one of the most unique people I had ever met, she was the most caring. Kylie was my friend who I would sit in coffee shops with (Dutch Bros) and dream. We would talk about boys and we would talk about our dreams. I would cry about how terrible I was doing in school, and Kylie would cry about how she took school too seriously. She helped motivate me and I helped calm her down to enjoy the ride a little bit more. Kylie would affirm me in who I was and what I had to offer. I would laugh hysterically at all her jokes and remind her of just how amazing she was.
Kylie is the most faithful friend I have. She puts her trust in Jesus and knows he will provide for her. I am unbelievably blessed to be apart of this wedding. I love this girl with all my heart and couldn't be more thrilled to watch her walk into this new season with her soon to be husband James. She will be moving to Portland as a nurse with James who will be going to school. So happy to have her close to me once again!
So Kylie this one's for you! Thank you for making me cry laughing and walking through life with me.
Thank you for encouraging me and lifting me up. Thank you for the deep conversations and for showing me what it looks like to be a true servant. I love you friend.
Ps. You're getting married tomorrow!!!!!!! Ahhhhhh!!!!!!!!
Love and #PhillipsWedding2013
