It’s time once again for me to dig deep into my external hard drive in search of the most flattering, slightly embarrassing, true to life, photos of Kayla for her birthday post. Our friendship has stood the test of time, and we have had our fair share of challenges. Opposites in nearly every way, we manage to balance each other out. I am in awe of her perfect bow tying, and boutonniere pinning abilities. She supports me in even the most crazy and messy of shoot ideas, with only the occasional eye roll. Kayla has been a driving force in my life for the last year, and I cannot think of a time when she (and her family) have not helped me when I was in need. We have spent hours painting, hanging batting, cleaning up flood water, repainting, computer sitting, wedding shooting, remodeling, and visiting over sushi. She has been a constant in my life, and is a great example of what love and service look like. I love today, because it gives me the opportunity to sit and reflect on just how lucky I am to have a friend like Kayla. Writing this post always just about brings me to tears when I think of all the experiences we have shared over the last year. I hope you have an amazing birthday (getting whatever power tool you have your eyes on) and that you realize how much you mean to everyone around you. Happy Birthday my friend!
