I've known Lisa for exactly half of her life.
We've been through good times...
high school shenanigans.
southern style road trips.
extreme shopping adventures.
embarking on the big adventure (called college) together.
her wedding, then mine.
the most awesome vacations.
and the birth of my baby boy, then hers.
We've been through bad times, too...
the time I didn't talk to her in the tenth grade,
because she was dissecting sharks with my boyfriend.
the time she didn't talk to me in college,
because I was hiding a dog in our shared apartment.
and a few other less than wonderful situations.
Through it all, we've remained the best of friends.
She has been a blessing in my life for fifteen years,
and on this past weekend, we celebrated her 30th birthday.
It was a great time for her group of friends...and an even better time for the
little kiddos, who obviously partied harder than the adults.
