The Uppers: Nich, Jamie, Red (Melissa), Goth (Melissa), Tera, London, and Holly.
It all started in the fall of 1999 when some of us met as roommates at BYU. It wasn't until the fall of 2000 when we moved into Connection Up (776 N 600 E Provo, UT) that we were given the title (thanks to our friends the Crusaders) of "The Uppers". And from there it was history. The seven of us have all lived together at one time or another over the space of five or six years making us a very close knit group. A family, really.
When we all started to go our separate ways it was important to keep each other updated. So our monthly (sometimes less frequent) emails became known as the "Upper Update". Over the last few years it has been amazing to see how we all have grown so much and how we have supported one another through both wonderful and difficult times.
The other day I was sitting at my computer at work and I decided that we need to take our updates to the next level and create a blog. So here it is: the Upper Update blog. Now we can all post the news of our adventures, photos of our families and share with each other all the exciting things going on in our lives. I am super excited for this!
