i love this birthday girl!

it's this pretty girl's birthday today  Happy Birthday Jessie!!! College brought us together and i am SO thankful we've kept in touch over the years, case and point:
college : mass comm girls! (there's twinkie next to jessie)

celebrating our first friend to get married in 2007 : Adrian's bachelorette in Downtown Ft. Worth (and now she's about to have her second baby and still very happily married). Look at how young we look! ha

at another college girlfriend's wedding 

out celebrating mine and Marianne's 24th Birthday : this feels like a lifetime ago because of the ex on my erm chest... this is why it's so important to have a girlfriend like Jessie. They'll get you through the hard times, the growing pains. 

and years later, they'll celebrate in your immeasurable joy as you marry the love of your life. A friend like Jessie will really understand the weight of everything it took to get to this place in your life. 

trips home now mean trying to get together with our favorite college professor at our old stomping ground (toby's bar). {check out the shots in jessie's hand!}

and most recently, a much needed girls trip to San Francisco to see Claire (here we are at Rubicon Estate in Napa Valley). Jessie got a gorgeous tattoo of the word "imagine" in john lennon's handwriting on her foot -- spontaneously while we were in Haight and Ashbury. i just love that about her! 
once upon a time wichita falls girls on Baker Beach in SF : Katy (inbetween me and marianne) lives there now but you can see her in the group photo of our 24th birthday (the pretty blonde on the far right). All 3 girls worked together at the Newspaper and i love that we believe in keeping in touch. 


sorry for the picture overload, but as you can see we have history-- and words can not express how much she means to me and Marianne. 

jessie, i hope you have a fabulous birthday! i foresee many more girl trips, bottles of wine (+beer!), life changing emails/random texts, music, and love in our future. xo 

please drop by her little corner of the internet and help me wish her a happy birthday? and really-- if you haven't read her blog yet, you really should. i am always moved by her words {not to mention you'll discover some good music along the way}.

I LOVE looking at our history in photos! :) And I love you even more. Thank you so much for such a sweet post, and for the birthday wishes. You are, as always, too kind. I'm so blessed to be able to call you a friend, and I can't imagine my life without you in it!
Love you bunches and bunches.

You're always so sweet with your birthday posts. :) I love this one especially. How gorgeous is Jessie in that first picture?? And in the third picture, you look just like Marianne! It took me a minute to realize it was you!

I'm ridiculously grateful for all three of you. Thank God for girl friends, girls' trips, and unconditional understanding. :)

Happiest birthday, Jessie!!

This friendship you have with her is beautiful. I'm so glad you have been able to keep in touch with her and have shared so many moments together.

Girl friends are so precious! xx

This is a really sweet post, and girl, I love you, but I can't get over that picture of that man devouring your boobs. What?
