For two girls who had no ties to the Covenant church or family that attended the university, this was a lonely prospect. Luckily, though, we were placed on the same floor our freshmen year and became fast friends. So much so, in fact, that we decided to tell everyone that we were cousins so we could have a "family connection" too.

True story: I would venture to say that 90% of the people we knew in college still think we're related. And we love this fact!
Anyway, I bring all that up so you understand my excitement when Bobbie and I made plans for her to come hang out in the 'burbs this weekend. This girl is definitely a part of my family, even if we don't share blood.
To make our visit even more exciting, Bobs and I decided to cook a Middle Eastern smorgasbord together (doesn't that just sound fantastic?!), as a nod to her 2.5 years in the Peace Corps in Jordan.
