Happy Birthday Beth!

My oldest (not in the age-sense) friend, Beth, turned 29 today. I wasn't able to be with her to celebrate her birthday, so the following is a tribute to Beth. 29 pictures of us throughout our friendship, in honor of her 29th Birthday!

Beth and I have been friends since we met in Mrs. Petty's 6th Grade Class. We have shared so many "firsts". Our friendship has endured hardships and joys. We have been there for each other through so many chapters of life. I have helped Beth celebrate more birthdays than I can count. I am so thankful to know that I will help her celebrate many more!

Awww....I didn't know it was your b-day, Beth!!! Happy birthday, girlie!!!! I miss you!!

It's so fun because so many of the pics I think we all have. I can't believe how we dressed and wore our hair! The scary thing is, THAT LOOK IS BACK! UGH!!! But you two were beauuuuutiful! And I could hardly recognize either of you in the first couple of pictures. What pretties you two are . . . and how you grew over the years. You make me happy to say I'm glad you have each other cuz I know how great each one of you are. :)

Also I was soooo happy to see that one of MY pictures made it to YOUR blog!!!! :):) Yayyyy!!
