Childlike Fun

Ok, so your birthday is like the one day of the year when you get to feel like a little kid again and it is just fine! Its that one day of the year that you can expect to be treated like you are in elementary school again, but in the best way possible. Girls get to dress up like princesses if they want for another day and parade around like they world revolves around them, and guys get to revert back to the days when the cool little gadgets and Tonka trucks were enough to waste hours on, at least I still see birthday's that way. Its a day when people get to celebrate you, and this week, not only do I get to celebrate me, but I get to celebrate some amazing friends I've made and friendships I've strengthened who just happen to share the same magical 7 day span with me this year, so like another friend who is honoring September birthdays, I've instead chose to honor the magical 7 day period in which I get lucky enough to share my Birthday with multiple of those who I'd like to think of, reverting back to elementary school again, as "BFFs."

Joey, I hope you don't mind I copied you on this one, but hey, Birthday buddies forever right?
Let's start at the very beginning, the very best place to start...(Points if you can name that movie)

Megan Riney and Tia Burton: September 23 & 25- Wedding dress and far right :)

Not very many people can say that they met their best friends when they were in Kindergarten, or even earlier, however lucky of us, we can.  You are two of the best friends I've ever had. I hope the following memories will bring a smile to both of your faces. Cabbage Patch Club, Christmas Parties, Madrigal Dinner, Band/Color Guard, Show Choir, Scary Movies, Hayride Birthday Parties, Lunches at Shana's and many more to come I'm sure. Thanks you two for so graciously sharing your birthday week with me every year. :)

Joey Whitaker: September 29- Far Left

Ahh, Joey, I thought it was cool having two of my best friends with birthdays so close to mine, but if 2 is awesome, why not add a third right? I've heard that shared experiences and memories connect people not only across time but space as well. I hope that the memories we have had together mean as much to you as they do to me and that we have many more. Thanks for being a great friend and for never giving up on me. We met at a hard time for both of us, and what better way to become friends than to help each other out. Thanks Joey for the good times and I'm excited for more to come.
Don't be afraid to dream big, your dreams will take you far.
