Happy 30th Birthday to my Bestie!

   I have been blessed to have an amazing friend Dara for the past 17 years. When we first met Dara didn't really like me because I was younger and new. :) Little did we know that we would go through so many lifetime milestones, laughter, tears, fear, and joy. I have so many fun memories with Dara from Camp Crestview, late night sleep overs, a trip to Sunriver, to weddings, and now babies.
   I think our friendship has grown so much since our girls were born. Motherhood has a way of bringing people together. If someone had told us when we were 15 that we would have daughters who were best friends I think it would have fit perfectly into our little picture of what our lives would be. Preschool, ballet, dress up play dates, it could not be more perfect. Twins on the other hand, not so much. :) I think that may have freaked us out a bit. Dara has been such a huge blessing since I found out about the twins. She came all during my bed rest and through the first 6 months to fold my laundry, sweep my floors, hold babies, and pretty much anything I needed. She was a huge part of my survival during that time. She never hesitated to wear a baby while we were out running around attempting to get out of the house. She loves my kids so much and treats them as if they were her own. Crazy loud and all. Now we have 5 kids between us. haha! While it is not always easy to get in a phone conversation with 5 kids in the background somehow we manage to each day. We never run out of things to chat about.
   So all of that to say, I don't know what I would do without my bestie. Dara you are an amazing friend and I am so blessed to have you in  my life. I cannot wait to celebrate with you today as you turn 30. Dara's husband Chris, her mom, and I have been planning a surprise birthday for the past few months. I am really hoping she doesn't have a clue. We should be there right as this is posting. I got the privilege of making the invites and centerpieces. We used photos of Dara through her life in them and figured I what a perfect way to celebrate Dara. Here is a look at her 30 years. I don't know the stories behind all of them but she was sure cute. Dara, I hope your day is full of fun and I hope your 30's are  the best yet. Hugs from your LPNGP Masa!

Love you friend!
