Birthday Birthday Birthday


Happy Tuesday, friends.
But more importantly:
Happy Birthday to TWO of my best friends


Ashley || Amanda

I'm starting this blog post by showing you just how beautiful my best friends are. In my eyes, they look like models - which is why they are always in front of my camera lens : )
And now, I'm going to show a couple dozen pictures to reminisce about my friendship with each of these lovely ladies.
Honestly, I showed those pretty pictures because things are about to get ugly interesting, and they might kill me. Oops! Love you both!

Warning - This post is FULL of pictures.
Photos may contain: Duck faces, alcohol, inappropriate poses, lots of laughs, terrible sun burns, silly faces, awful make-up jobs, bad hair, and lots of love.

Amanda

She is the peanut butter to my jelly, the Bert to my Ernie, the room to my mate, the 'Son' to my 'Real', and the Quake to my Kayo (haha Amanda, I had to).
Seriously though, Amanda is one of my best friends. We've known each other since the 2nd Grade, and we've been best friends since 7th Grade. We've traveled to Europe together, and we've moved to St. John's, NL and Vancouver, BC together. We are so alike and so different at the same time. We get along better than most people, and I'm lucky to have her in my life.

Amanda loves Marilyn Monroe, so I thought this was fitting.


Ashley

She is the red to my solo cup, the duck to my dynasty, the wolf to my pack, and (with Christian) we truly are the three best friends that anyone could have.
Ashley is the sister I never had. I grew up with one older brother, Christian. He was okay. One day he met and fell in love with Ashley, and we have since become best friends. I can't imagine my life without her, and I feel like I'm a better person for having her in my life. Even though I'm 6,000km away from her, I know when I go home it's like nothing has changed. She's a true friend.

Ashley, Uncle Si is singing and dancing 'My Humps' just for you... we'll just pretend he's singing Happy Birthday, okay?

One. Ashley and Amanda graciously helping me paint my bedroom on a whim one day.
Two. Attending an amazing outdoor concert on a hot summer day, we stood for 10 hours.
Three. Random shenanigans.
Four. The two birthday girls together.

Happy Birthday Amanda & Ashley.

I love you both dearly and I'm so thankful to have each of you in my life. I'm a better person because of each of you. You have both played such a huge part in my life and you're part of the reason that I am who I am, today.
I love you both more than I can put into words here, and I want to thank you for being a part of my life.
p.s. I'm glad that you are both 25 before me. Phew.
