Mirsa is a long time friend. But for my husband, Joe, their friendship goes back even farther. Mirsa and Joe were neighbors back in college, when Joe and I were first dating. They did everything together. Went grocery shopping together, cooked handmade egg rolls together, watched the movie Elf (way. too. many. times!) together. They were both attending school on the opposite side of the country from their own families, so a special bond formed, and suddenly they were each other's family. A group of us, consisting largely of Joe, Mirsa & their surrounding neighbors, were all constantly hanging out together. Needless to say, Mirsa quickly became a close friend. Fast forward to today, after graduation Mirsa moved back to her home in Seattle, Washington and found the guy of her dreams, Jeff. He asked her to marry him, and we couldn't be happier for them both.
