Friend Friday- Sandi Munroe
A while back I said I was going to start "Friend-Fridays," dedicating a post to someone who has influenced my life for the good. Well, here it is...
Sandi has been blessed with so many talents. She is creative, ambitious, caring, smart, adventurous, good at anything she puts her mind to, thoughtful, open-minded, beautiful, and the list goes on.
I met Sandi when I was serving a LDS church mission in Tempe, Arizona. She helped us out and gave us rides to places and we became great friends. Our friendship has grown even more over the years. She lives in New York and is always up to something fun. This girl doesn't know how to be lazy! I've visited her a couple times in New York & she's been to Utah. I laugh so hard when we're together.
She is super multi-cultural. By that, I mean, she has an appreciation for different cultures. People of all races & backgrounds gravitate towards her because she truly cares & wants to get to know people. She is probably the only Caucasian that lives within 10 blocks of her apartment. She teaches & tutors children and they adore her. She goes the extra mile and gets to know the families of those she lives by & works with on a personal basis.
Sandi has shared her creativity with us on many occasions. She typed up a cookbook for HeRoos and I when we got married with her favorite recipes & we use it all the time. She also made Max an adorable quilt that we treasure. If you want to be inspired by this truly amazing person, you can peek in on her blog http://www.nymanzanita.blogspot.com/
p.s. Since my pictures are so disorganized, I "borrowed" a Sandi's picture from her blog. Thanks Sandi!
