I told the story of how Meckenzie’s mom and my mom met each other before the two of us arrived at Lehigh. Meckenzie and I became fast friends our freshman year. Many nights were spent back and forth between each others rooms, trips to the dining hall, and even trips to Meckenzie’s (the local among our group) old high school to watch football games. There were nights spent taking care of each other after a little too much partying. All of my best memories from college include Meckenzie. All of them.
Meckenzie made magical mix CDs. I would love a new one for when the baby arrives. She is a great judge of character and I always felt like we were on the same page.
Meckenzie was a wonderful bridesmaid and always so supportive of Ken and my relationship. And ever since the day after our wedding, she’s been asking if I was knocked up. And I’m pretty sure she would be happy if we named the baby Meckenzie if it was a boy or a girl. It would be a great name because Meckenzie is a great person.
She lives out in California now with her boyfriend Andy (whom I like, except for the fact that he took her to California) and I can’t help but wish that she lived down the street and seeing her was as easy as it was those freshman days many years ago!
