Tri Sigma: Faithful Unto Death

So I follow this great blog that Jodi introduced me to a while back called 'Kelly's Korner Blog'--it's a great blog, she blogs every single day and inspires me to do the same--hey I'm trying! Anyways, today she blogged about the sorority that she was in when she was in college--and I thought that was a great idea since I am so proud of the sorority that I joined in college!

During the spring semester of my freshman year at good ol' Barton College in Wilson, N.C., I was introduced to a FABULOUS group of girls who belonged to one of the three sororities on campus. I only went to a few of their recruitment parties throughout the year, but luckily they remembered me and gave me a bid :o) (Maybe I was a charity case since my mouth was still wired shut from the jaw surgery I had earlier that year, ha!). Anyways, joining this sorority was one of the best decisions that I ever made. After graduating highschool I thought I would never find friends like the ones that I had grown up with since daycare, but I made some of the BEST friends I could have ever asked for after joining Tri Sigma. These girls have stood by me through crappy boyfriends, bad grades, changing my major (3 times), transferring to another school, meeting the man of my dreams, moving 4,000 miles away to Alaska, marrying the man of my dreams, and now having a sweet little girl :o)
I just love these girls so much--they are truly the best friends I could have ever asked for! They are always calling, or catching up on facebook, or through text messages--and have always been there when I needed to cry or scream or laugh. And they surely won't miss an opportunity to get together to catch up--I could only invite a select few to our wedding since it was so small, but if I could have I would have invited the whole chapter--I WAS able to invite more of the girls to mine and Jason's 'going away cookout' and girls drove from Pennsylvania, Maryland and all over Eastern NC to come and see us before we left for Alaska :o) Luckily, I have been able to keep up with most of them even though we live in the middle of nowhere, and across the world--but I can't wait to get back on the east coast so we can all visit more often, and so I can take Jason and Paislee to some of the events that are held throughout the year, and introduce them to the fabulous world of Tri Sigma--after all, Miss Paislee is a legacy and hopefully a future Tri Sigma sister as well :o)

XOXO from lonely Alaska,
