In the 3rd grade my family moved. ( I moved A LOT it seemed like) Well, I remember my first day at my new school. I was scared, I hated it and I was worried about not having friends. My desk was placed in the back row next to a cute little girl with big glasses. I remember to this day even after 22 years later how I became life long friends with Andi. She was to my left and I leaned over and asked if she wanted to be my friend. It could have been anyone that day. They could have said no - especially how my mother dressed me. Even at 8 I was a bubbly chatty girl - can you believe that? Anyways, I either won her over with my big heart and smile or my amazing 80's Joan Jett hair (thanks again Mom). I am going to have to go with smile.
I am so glad it was her that day. It was a fate thing.
We grew up together. I practically lived with her. We were inseparable. In 7th grade my family moved me thousands of miles away to Michigan, we even remained close through the distance. We wrote letters, sent cards and pictures, visited each other. Everything we could to stay connected.
I don't like to refer to her as "just a friend" or even a "best friend," because to me that just doesn't seem to do her and our relationship justice. She is more like a sister. We will forever be in each other's lives. We are so different and want so many different things out of life but we are so very much the same. Our friendship is constant and never changing. I can trust her with anything. My life wouldn't have been remotely the same without her. I am thankful for her friendship and love and what she has done for me.
Tobias turns 1! This little man has stolen my heart. He is probably one of the happiest babies I have ever come across - always smiling. About half way through his session, he walked right up to me and gave me a hug. I just wanted to cuddle him. You can see why I love this little boy...... such a doll.
Thank you for stopping by. May the images of your present be the legacy for your future.
