I've made some really great friends as an adult, but there is something different...something I can't quite put my finger on, about those relationships with people that have known me forever. The history shared together really is priceless. They've seen me at my best, and seen me at my worst. Over the years, we get to see each other grow and mature...and it's really quite amazing when I think about it.
Today is my friend Shell's birthday. She's one of those friends. And her name really isn't Shell, it's Michelle...but sometime in college I started calling her Shell, and now for the life of me I CANNOT STOP. It's like my pet name for her. ;)
I give you us, at our senior prom. (me on the left, Shell in the middle, ignore the girl on the right)
Happy Birthday Shell! You're still the amazing, beautiful girl you've always been. Love you!
Oh wait, there's more...
In honor of Shell's Birthday, and Christmas Time Baking, and the fact that I've eaten through two bags...I'm doing a little give-away.
|Brachs Chocolate Stars|
I have no idea why, but these things are a-maze-ing. I've been talking about them on Facebook, for weeks. They are delish on their own, or, you can make these:
The recipe is on the back of the bag :)
To enter the giveaway, leave me a comment about friends, or chocolate, or your senior prom...whatever you feel the need to share AND go over and visit my beautiful friend, Shell at Giblogger, and look at her beautiful family and wish her a Happy Birthday...but don't even bother asking her to dish secrets about me, because we decided long ago, in our tiny little apartment together that "what happens in the loft, stays in the loft."
Oh wait, not quite...the giveaway will end at midnight tonight...along with Shell's birthday.
