It's hard to come up with the right things to say about Bethany. She's not one of those people, who remind me of someone else. She is truly one-of-a kind. Her wit, her smile, her almost painfully tight bear hugs, her ability to be honest and caring at the same time - - - she loves to learn, loves to engage, loves to dig deep into the why of things. I was lucky to live with her for a year in Silver Lake as we embarked on this "being an adult" journey fresh out of undergrad. We discovered LA together, how people can sit on porches for hours, Trader Joes pre-made salads and how not having a washer and dryer unit really does lessen the quality of life. I know all these fragments don't quite sum up how much I admire and love Bethany - - - but she is quite frankly, a gem to this earth, and I'm so happy to celebrate this union in the month of May.
