Best Friends

So we left town again.  It seems we are always on the road these days.  This time though, it was all about seeing BEST FRIEND- Monica Del Valle Morey! Yep, that's the one. 

She has been my best friend since I was 13 years old. It was a time in my life where I desperately needed her. And as it turns out she needed me too. It's funny how things have a way of working out when you think there's no possible way they ever will. I guess that's what makes life interesting. I feel blessed to have made a handful of amazing friends in my life.  They just don't come by that often.  
 
It was so great to see her.  We picked up exactly where we left off- hugging, dancing, singing, and making cookies.  It's like nothing had changed.  That's what I love about Monica- we'll always be friends forever.  Won't we?  RuuuuRRuuuuRuuuu {Fox and The Hound} 

Monica and I.  She's so gorgeous! Inside and Out.  And you can totally tell even from a picture. Don't you think? I am one lucky best friend.

Getting Ice Cream after Women's Conference... we were laughing so hard we cryed!  I LOVE when that happens.  And I won't tell you what we were talking about... I'm afraid Nana would get out her wooden spoon and chase me around the house...

Sunday family picture! Thanks Monica for letting me wear your cute clothes... 
{note to self: buy a cute dress and leggings- it works for you.}

 I ADORE this picture.  Maggie has learned to wave and say hi.  Pretty much the cutest thing ever.

Here's a good one for the Daddy wall I'm making... You can always count on getting a good smile from Rachel in the swing...

Yep, nothings changed.

Cookie time!  A best friend tradition passed on the the next generation- I think we succeeded for sure.

Definitely a success. She licked that spoon dry. And yes, I gave Maggie raw cookie dough- I don't care who you are, you're not living unless you eat the dough. 
Period. Exclamation mark. kaboom.

And that's it.  
p.s.- Monica, let's not wait another 4 years to do this. I think I might die.
