{PHOTOSHOOT} cuz she's a gorgeous gal // BEST FRIEND ALERT

4.28.16

I met Ragen at the coffee shop in town. She was doing a singing concert to raise funds for a mission trip she was going on - Bree dragged me along because I was having this majorly introverted time. #istpproblems 

 We chatted, goofed off a little, and I kinda left the place like "well bye" cuz I didn't think I would see her again. Then, Bree and I went to another concert and she was there - and this time, we couldn't stop talking. I just felt this deep connection and was like "that's it. I need to talk more with this girl!!" 

(and can i say right now that deep connection was Jesus? yup. thank you)

  Now, honestly, I can't imagine not knowing Ragen.  She's got the spunkiest, sweetest, outlook on life. You can ask Ragen a question and she'll think on it, giving you the answer you never even thought of. Plus, she's an amazing listener.

Also look at her sense of humor ^^ i mean YES GOALS

And now, we've played foosball so a deeper part our relationship has opened up (like *coughcough* we are competitive). Also, raced up the stairs and she beat me. bllahhhh We've read poetry and giggle over random stuff, ate banana bread in her kitchen, and sang songs.

to sum it up, Ragen is a gem.

AND GUYS WAHT ITS 2017?!?!?! I'm so ready for this. bring it on. *grins* 

tell me about your friend
goofy story of you two??

  1. Eating banana bread is a totally sure sign of friendship-- my friend's and I tried t bake aome and it turned out pretty bad. But we still ateit. xD Ragen is so pretty, oh my gosh! You're lucky to know her. A weird story between my friends and I recently? Um, we all made up code signals to grab snacks from a table during Thursday meetings because we weren't allowed to talk. It's weird, but still fun.

    xoxo Morning

    2. Okay, but eating banana bread isn't like the best thing-- it is the best thing. xD We weren't allowed to talk because we take this hour long class after school and the teacher just openly lectures (and if you interrupt him, he will make it a big deal in front of the class that you were talking). >.< IT'S NOT FUN WHEN IT'S LIKE THAT.

  4. Amazing listeners make the most amazing friends! I'm so thankful to have a friend like that!!! I'm glad Bree helped you meet this gem and that your life is now that much richer!
    Hmmmm, goofy story about my best friend and I? Well, we wrote for seven and a half years before we met. And when she finally came to visit, what was our first long conversation about after she caught up on sleep?
    Bugs, and all the terrifying things they've ever done to us.
    For two hours.
    I still laugh about that every time I think of that visit. Haha!

    P.S.... I messaged you on google hangouts, but I don't know if you'll be notified to it, because I never am, lol, so I thought I'd let you know :).

  5. *thinks this is a very cool post* and YES she is a gorgeous gal *nodnod*

    WELL some of my bestest friends are my sisters - and we always have the weirdest conversations at eleven at night for some reason xD. And because we are all TIRED, we are thus prone to laughing HYSTERICALLY at basically anything. It's amusing. And then we think about it then next day and wonder what on earth we found so funny xD.

  7. Love this post! Ragen is even prettier in person though -- she has a beautiful spirit!

    And, on top of that, she is an awesome Foosball player. I would say that she is good enough to play professionally. (*inside joke*) lol.

    I'm not sure if Headless Harry approves though...poor guy. ;)

  10. Wow! She is so pretty, you are so blessed to have such a fabulous friend. :)
    Funny story? We were all at an ice-cream shop (there were four of us), and we were running down the hills, racing. We loved writing together, we based characters off of ourselves. (Lol.) So we called each other by those names...we caught some of the kids that we didn't know (who were sitting at a picnic table) whispering and betting about who they think would win...talking about us with our fake-names! XDDDD

  11. Me and a friend majority of the time...we both had the longest legs...(I still do..:p). But it was really funny, because they had gone there all the time...and we had never seen those kids before---and it was awesome because our fake-names were totally rad. :D

    1. lol!!!!! That's so me, actually. I always won on foot races :P even tho, I really am kinda short? idk! I'm just curious as to what your fake name was XD

      Delete
    2. Haha! I feel super weird coming back and seeing all your replies....but....too late, I guess.
      My style was super weirdo back then (it was about two years ago), so my play-names (we used two at once) was Zandra and Cordelia, Zandra was my own character, and then Cordelia was my character in the collaborative book. :D
