I had the greatest birthday last week!  2 of my closest  girlfriends came into town for a 2 night slumber party and spent my entire birthday with me…it was the BEST!  These 2 ladies knew my drama in high school, came to my wedding (and I to theirs) and we are still close through our mothering years.  Emily lives in Connecticut and Natalie is in Dallas.  We try to get together once a year.  I just LOVE these ladies.  I contacted 2 local photographer friends and asked if they would document our friendship, and they both wanted to come along!  Thanks to Heather Walker and Tricia Dunlap for these shots–they make me so happy!

WARNING–major overload of pictures…I just love them all:)  And I narrowed them down a LOT!

I hope I don’t get in big trouble for posting these…but I LOVE us dancing!

I love the shot above of my friends being silly behind Heather to make me smile for my individual shot.  I wanted to wear pink, so threw that shirt over my dress.

 Tricia shooting above…

I had them snap a few of me by myself to update my profile and to use on these here site.  SO grateful for good friends in my life.  I should add that I did the editing myself, not them…maybe Tricia and Heather will share their take on their favorites on their own blogs.
