her name is amanda. her husband’s name is jacob. this couple has been through more than the people who survived the sinking of the titanic (slight exaggeration? maybe. but I had to think of something big). that story is for another time though (amanda, write a book about it!). i met amanda my freshman year at western michigan university. she took me under her wing (as a sophomore) during band camp, we both play(ed-i plan on picking it back up!) the clarinet. i love this girl.
after i took a year off of school to be on a team at my church (often known as a gap year, lo and behold I was on the GAP team… kind of like a bible college for ten months, only more intense) i never quite found my niche again with amanda and the other girls i befriended while i was in marching band, and i didnt join the band again when i went back to western (once you leave something as rigorous like that, it is really hard to go back- oh and by the way, WMU’s marching band is TOTALLY cool) but the year i spent with them (i love you stacy, laura, and sarah!) -and her- will always be impressed upon my heart. that is why i love going to amanda’s blog and reading about her life.
her latest post took my breath away. jacob and amanda ran a marathon together. are you kidding me?
it’s a great post, read about it HERE.
she is also on my blogroll that way (a day in the life of)————> so check her out!
