Friendship is a truly amazing thing. And I am so blessed to have so many amazing friends in my life. One of which, is my dear friend Merideth. We have been friends for over a decade… yep, over 10 years. In fact, I think it’s more like 12 years now. I’ve had the privilege of sharing an amazing friendship with her and through the years we have become wives together, and now moms together. Motherhood is is one of the most incredible experiences of my life and going through it with one of your best friends is even better. I remember when I found out she was pregnant; due just four short months after me. And then I remember when I found out she was having a girl, just like me. If there was such a thing as “arranged friendships”, our daughters were pretty much set up from day one.
This past year has been a whirlwind, but I can hardly believe her little girl is turning one this week. How is that even possible? Ari is one of the most beautiful, spirited and sweet little girls ever. And I was able to capture that all this past weekend while taking family picture for them. Such a beautiful family, and I am so blessed to have them in my life. Happy (early) birthday Ariana. “Auntie” Carrie loves you so much!
