Susan is on the top right with the perfect curly ponytails and I'm in the middle row of the bottom with the perfect blonde braids. Aren't we cute?
I lived on Redwood Lane and Susan lived on Aspen Lane. It was terribly convenient since it took a 45 second bike ride or a 3 minute walk from driveway to driveway.

After high school she went to Irvine, I went to Stanislaus. We saw each other off and on our freshman year in college but after that life took over and our visits and communication slowed to almost nothing. That sucked. We never really lost touch but life took a turn for us. I guess after spending the last 10 years of our life together every single day it was time. We began to reconnect in the early 2000's - we were both out of school and in our jobs. Adults!
About a month and a half after Drew was born Susan came to visit and meet Drew. That was awesome.

We met up again in 2004 in Vegas for a surprise 30th birthday party for Brandon. Brandon didn't know any of the 30 guests were coming, including Susan who flew in.
Vegas, 2004. We had a blast (despite my bitchy look) celebrating my brother's 30th birthday.
Vegas, 2004. Suz, Brandon, me. Just like old times.
Today Susan turns 29. Well, not quite, but ya know. So, in honor of her 29th birthday I'd like to wish the happiest of days. I am so grateful for texting, our main way of communicating these days, and for the thousands of memories we made together. I'm a better person because of our friendship and I hope my daughters have a friend in their lives that means as much to them as you do to me. From New Kids to U2, from swimming to water polo, from the Caprice Classic to your Infinity. Love you.
Would love if you'd click once. xoxo
