There is a list more than a few miles long of all the things I could tell you guys about Jenna. 

I first met Jenna back in March 2016 after I posted in a photographer's community group about going to Arizona in August for vacation. Little did I know that when Jenna commented "ME ME ME, let's have coffee before I move there!", we were going to become lifelong friends. Whether she wanted to or not. But she did so I am relieved haha.
 

Jacob and I made the plans to go to Arizona and Jenna and I stayed in touch and hung out whenever she flew back home to Memphis to work. August could not come fast enough. 

Jenna and I spent some alone time together the first night we got in and just opened up to each other. About life, about celebrations, about trials, about photography, about marriage, about our past and about our future. We laughed and laughed and cried and laughed until about 2:00AM, (4:00AM back on Memphis time) and then got up the next morning to explore Tucson. 

The bond Jenna and I made, in the short time from which our friendship sprouted, has felt like it's been there our whole lives.

Weekend trips, countless hours in car rides and deep talks, sang Hozier and The Head and the Heart for an hour, sat in silence, cried together, pigged out together, she even got me to watch like 3 hours of Bones... I just love her. She is my pocket full of sunshine even when her skies are grey.

"THE WORLD IS REALLY BIG AND I WANT TO GET A GOOD LOOK BEFORE IT GETS DARK"

I guess you could say... long story short... it's like the saying about finding your real friends in your 20 something years, ^^^^ that's what happened. 2016 has given me some of the best people that could have ever entered my life and I am forever grateful. Here is to YOU, guys. May you always remember why you started this crazy journey in the first place and keep it close to your heart. Jenna, I love you goob. Can't wait to see you again!
