On this day 28 years ago, one of my best friends was born. The top photo was taken in 2009, we were ending our junior year in high school. That was the year we met and became friends. The bottom photo was taken during one of my visits to her house, with her kids and husband running around. I’m proud of the life she has built and look forward to being her friend while she accomplishes even more. Happy Birthday, Arely!
