This beautiful lady has been my friend since preschool. She is my opposite in nearly every way, and yet we have shared dress ups and textbooks, shoes, makeup, some harsh words and a whole lot of forgiveness, letters, stories, bedrooms and homes for over fifteen years. Honestly, I'm not sure how I would have survived those awkward junior high years without her.
These photos are from a day we spent together in Palmer, Alaska before she left for school two months ago.
