VII: SARAH WOZ

SARAH TIMMS WOZNIAK. ATHLETE. WOMEN OF GOD. LIFETIME BEST FRIEND.

I met Sarah my sixth grade year of middle school during our P.E. class together. We were both awkward, brace-faced and just two kids with no idea of where we fit into the world. Let me preface with have come a long way since our original “glory” days.

We have seen each other through the middle school awkward phase, high school graduation, four years of college at different schools hours apart and are now currently navigating the adult world and married life together. She has been my longest friend and been my side through for as long as I can remember.

During our senior year, I would follow Sarah to the local course after school for her to get reps in as she would just nod and laugh at my horrible golf game. We’ve lived through middle school yearbook class together, being roommates during our high school mission trips, our questionable choices in boyfriends during college and coming full circle to being bridesmaids in each other’s weddings.

Sarah has always been one of the first to send a text to check in and say “Hey, how are you?” or call to check in on my week. She truly is the epitome of a lending hand and a selfless love.

SARAH,

I strongly believe in having “a person” and there is no better person to fit that description than you. For the last sixteen+ years of my life, we have been through numerous different stages of life together, like learning to drive, applying to colleges and planning weddings. To me, it is so important for your friends to be proud of you when you get a new job, learn something new or accomplish the big things. It’s also really important for your friends to just be proud that you got out of bed that day and you do both. You let people know there is more to them beyond their mistakes and are the first to offer a word of encouragement and a smile.

You light up every room you walk in and lift spirits of everyone around you. You face problems with dignity and and it’s no wonder why people are so drawn to you. You’re always the first to give of yourself without asking for anything in return. You exemplify grace in every sense of the word and are a testament to the Lord’s forgiveness in every situation.

You have sat with me, laughed with me, cried with me, empathized with me and picked me up hundreds of times when I feel like my world was crashing.

Thank you for sticking by my side, showing me the most sincere support and living out unconditional love. You have been a constant for me when the world was ever changing.

 ♡,
ALEX

KRP. Kelsey Ryan Phillips. Ball of Energy. Sunshine personified.

I originally met Kelsey our freshman year during sorority recruitment, although that encounter is a bit fuzzy for me. Just ask Kelsey. 😂

After we both rushed Gamma Phi, our paths crossed many times during the fall semester and into the spring. Praise the Lord for His timing!

From then on, we ate almost every meal together at the sorority house. We took pictures together before every function and asked guys to be our dates in the most crazy ways possible. We went to Shag night every Thursday and ate our weight in Cookout trays. We traveled to Carolina away games and made the twelve hour road-trip to see Casey in Baton Rouge. On off weekends, we crashed Mama P’s house in Sea Pines and enjoyed the beautiful SC coast.

Often times, I would get asked where my “other half” was if Kelsey wasn’t somewhere nearby.

Our friendship quickly blossomed into one of my most valued treasures in life. Over the last nine years, Kelsey has been by my side through my highest moments and my darkest valleys. Like momma Phillips’ famous mantra, we have shared so many of life’s highs and lows together.

Kelsey was the Maid of Honor in my wedding. Kelsey is the blond to my brunette.

She pushes me to be spontaneous.
She shows me that all people are worthy of love. She inspires me to a better version of myself, even when it’s hard.
She has always been a listening ear and a steady shoulder to cry on. She is a firm believer in the Lord and is a testament of His grace in all things.

Thank you, Kelsey, for all you that you are. Your free spirit and unwavering positivity radiates joy and light into every room you step foot in. You have been such a gift to me since day one.

I can’t wait to
