sj + a trip to austin (but mostly sj)

for those of you who don't know, i was born and (partially) raised in austin.
and austin in my favorite place in the world.
i went to austin for spring break, and nick, my mama, stepdad and stepsister went too!
we ate great food, had a beautiful engagement party for my mama and brian, went to some march madness games, and got to see some of my family. 
and now we can add yet another reason for me to love austin:

sara-jane and i have known each other for quite a while now, but meeting her was more than i could have ever imagined.
the first day we met, my family went to watch some basketball and let me spend the entire day with sj.
so i waited on a park bench for her to come pick me up, looking around frantically (and inwardly freaking out when she said "i'm in an xterra" because my idiot brain went "JUST LIKE LOGAN ECHOLLS, IT'S A SIGN")
and we SCREAMED when we saw each other, and an instant calm settled over me. (apparently i've become a person who is now comforted by screaming.)
i say this about everyone, but sj really is my soulmate.
i laughed harder than i ever have in my LIFE, so much so that i literally felt sick when we left each other.
sara-jane is smart, and witty, and beautiful, and just like me except better.
(and i was lucky enough to see her again on our trip (but it still wasn't enough))

i know i am a broken record, and i say this all the time, but i am truly so grateful for the people i have met through this little corner of the internet.

i love you, sj. and i miss you more every day.
