How Did This Happen?

I got a very exciting international the other night. It was one of my very best friends calling from Australia where she moved to be with her boyfriend that she met while vacationing in Europe. (I know... sounds more like a movie trailer than real life). But she was calling me to ask me to be her bridesmaid!

This is a first for me. I am only 20, but at home the cool thing to do is get married and while I have had close friends get married, L is older and I am in complete support of the marriage! After I had my little teary shrieking moment we moved on to talking about all the details there are.

But my mind kept wandering back to when we met in 2005, at a youth equestrian test. We studied horse parasties together, were obsessed with the movie cars, she had to teach me how to do t9 texting....

Where does the time go?

I am so thrilled for her, but at the same time it hit me that I am really becoming a grown up. And I'm not sure that I am ready and equipped for it. I also don't know if I really want it... being a child was so much fun. I know we couldn't drive, still had cerfew, and were in middle and high school. At this point I am even feeling nostalgic about college and I just passed my halfway mark! Eek

 But aren't there parts of 'childhood/teenagehood' you miss? When did you realize you were growing up?
