hannah elizabeth ours


















(my favorite pic I got of Hans the whole time) 

Hannah, or as I call her, Hans, is one of the best friends anybody could ever ask for. I think I realized that even more how much of a good friend she was when I got to spend a week with her last month. It was the the best week ever. 

I think one of the things I like most about Hans is that she's always there for me, and she'll except me as I am. I don't think there's any stupid thing I would do that she wouldn't forgive me for. I don't have to worry about what she'll think about me. We can talk about anything, from random embarrassing moments to our deepest struggles. It's kinda funny, really. 

Her fam is terrific too. They adopted me straight into their family, calling me all sorts of nicknames (the Ours family, they have the most hilarious names for each other). During the week I was there they were moving, so I got to help. Hey, I've moved over ten times in my life so it wasn't that big of a deal. Besides packing and cleaning everyday, we had ice cream every night, dance parties 24/7, late night talks (ok, some nights we just crashed), long car rides listening to music, photoshoots (not quite as many as we wanted to do though), and early morning Bible studies. It was a blast and went by too quickly, which just means we'll have to do it again sometime. 

Hans and I "met" online almost three years ago when I was sick in Egypt and she was a new kid who had just moved to Georgia. We found each other's blogs, started emailing and hit right off. We've talked on the phone, chatted, and webcammed countless times. 

It's funny, how when we first started our friendship all we would talk about was Narnia. Seriously, that's how we became friends. Now the most thing we have in common is Jesus. We normally are going through the same struggles at the same time, and Hannah has been so encouraging just to have her there with me through it all.

Don't think we're all that serious though. We have way too many inside jokes, but it's just whatever really. And ooohhh my goodness! Sometimes we joke too much we have to tell each other to stop and be a little more serious.

All in all, though it sounds cheesy, I'm so thankful for Hans and the way God's allowed us to get to know each other. I'm even thankful that I got sick in Egypt, without that, I probably wouldn't have had the time to get online and even meet Hannah in the first place! 

go check out Hannah's blog if ya wish. Here's a video of some of our adventure. Some parts you could skip where the sound cut out, youtube decided to mess things up but oh well.
