Happy Happy Birthday!

To My Dearest Friend, Alyshia- HAPPY BIG 3-0 29 with a remainder of 1! Because there are not words to describe what an amazing friend you are, I have stolen other peoples' and created a somewhat embarrassing endearing timeline of some of the highlights of our good times... Hope your day is FIERCE!

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another,
"What! You too? I thought I was the only one!" -C.S. Lewis
Going out to a rave 1995 (I die.)

It is not so much our friends' help that helps us, as the confidence of their help.-Epicurus
Senior Pep Rally 1997

Friendship is a strong and habitual inclination in two persons to promote the good and happiness of one another. - Eustance Budgell
Prom 1997.
(Tell me again why we thought we needed girdle slips?? Seriously.)
Friendship is not a big thing; it is a million small things. -Anonymous
Halloween 1997: Spice Girls!

Never shall I forget the times I spent with you; continue to be my friend,
as you will always find me yours.-Ludwig van Beethoven
New Year's Eve 1997- Whats with the shirts???

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter
and those who matter don't mind.-Dr. Seuss
Summer 1998-
Please notice Lysh's vintage tubetop and high-wasited jeans: 10 years before their time! So fabulous!

You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.-Laurence J. Peter
Caleb's Birthday-October 1998 ( Look! There's Josh!)

Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person,
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words. -George Eliot
Halloween 1999- Now we have children to subject to our Halloween Costume obsession!

In this world, where everything seems uncertain, only one thing I wish to be definite, you will always be my friend, beyond words, beyond time and beyond distance. -Anonymous

You're the best.

You are the best, most wonderful friend a 30 year old girl could have! Laughing and crying! I am so blessed have you as my friend, it's hard to believe that we have known each other only half of our lives, but we have truly grown up together. Just imagine all the funny picutres we will be able to laugh at when we are 60!
Love you ~ A

that's great Anne! I can't believe I made the post...curious though why you didn't comment on my stylish short shorts and skin tight hot pink city tank...ha! what the hell...?
You are a good friend!

Oh, and I spoke too soon about that stomach flu. I will be damned if the VERY NEXT DAY it hit the Saras household. Try driving to Ruidoso NM while the whole fmaily has it...picture Hudson projectile vomiting and having the 'other problem'. we had to pull over 2x to use a washing machine just to wash his car seat. It took us 3 days to get here...terrible! And yet I found myself somehow thinking of you and how much harder it must have been with 3 babies and a hub. Oooo, sucks to be sick.
