red, plaid and polka dots.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
-Marcel Proust

I have too many things I want to say about how much I adore these two friends. Whether watching
Kylie swallow a goldfish at her sweet sixteen, seeing Sara actually cry real tears for the first time in the Arctic Circle drive-thru (don't worry, this is actually a funny memory now), or having them both accept me even after my leggings and jean skirt phase _________ (judging space) I will always feel like the lucky one who gets to call them both my best friends, my kindred spirits, and more often than not, my sisters.
And needless to say, our traditional springtime picnic turned out to be glorious.


So cheers to sunshine.
Cheers to paper sack lunches and straw hats --
But double cheers to the people who make life just as great without any of those things anyway.

(and a big thank you to my second dad (sara's dad) for always being willing to take our pictures... as long as we bake him brownies).

This is absolutely glorious! I'm usually not a fan of too many photos on blogs but somewhere between the red plaid and the well shot glimpse of friendship combined with your chosen words I will certainly appreciate this post!
