Sweet New Baby

Good morning! It’s Thursday, which means it’s one step closer to weekend! I’ve got so many plans for the weekend, especially after all the renovation things that’s been going on the past two weeks I am so ready for a little fun time :)

Anyway, today I will show you a card I made for my best friend who just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. She has been my best friend for 17 years and believe it or not, almost half of those times we are apart. We started our friendship during our first year of Junior high school, then she went on to a semi-military school on scholarship about 10 hours away from me (by train) while I stayed in Jakarta. When she came home for college, my Dad decided to send me to Australia for college. Three years later we were reunited for about 4 years until she decided to take on specialization course in Australia. There, she met the love of her life and settled down. But what’s so amazing is that we are still as connected and as close as we were 17 years ago if not closer. We talk almost everyday and sees each other once a year when she comes home for a couple weeks.

Agh, I get a little teary eyed whenever I tell people of our friendship… But let’s move on to my card before I get sappier ahahahahaha.
