Is this my boyfriend??

That is what I heard this afternoon (along with a lot of laughter in the background) when I answered my phone from a number I didn't recognize. I was sure it was one of my young women, trying to be funny with their friends on their lunch break. I was so confused. Finally I ask the unknown voice who she is and she responds, "It's Amy!" It was my sweet cousin and friend, Amy Lou, who was released just minutes before as a missionary!! Her mom had handed Amy her new cell phone, and had her call the number listed under the name "Amy's boyfriend" in address book. Now you can imagine why we were both quite confused!! Needless to say, it was quite hilarious once it was all figured out, and such a nice surprise. Talking to her made my day!! I have been quite jealous that her family was able to fly out and be with her a whole week before the rest of us do, so talking to her was truly the next best thing. Ames and I have been best buds since we were young, and I have missed her so much these past 18 months!! It was especially hard having her gone to not share in the biggest event in my life this past year - my wedding. I can't wait to have her back and have many more fun times together.
I am, after all, her new boyfriend. :)
