Hey Everyone! Molly here!
So I have this friend…Nikki (I call her Nik) …. I think we probably met sometime in middle school, but we really didn’t become good friends until highschool when we had the same advisement class. We sat next to each other because her last name started with a ‘g’ and mine started with an ‘h’. I’m not sure how, but we became quick friends and immediately began passing notes about boys and clothes and swimming and weekend plans in our English class. Not sure how we never got caught, because we sat RIGHT NEXT to the teacher. Surely she knew, and just thought we were awesome so she let it slide…
Anyway, Nik is one of my favorite people ever. When I get together with her, I remember why I like her so much. I can be me. I can say anything, and do anything, and she won’t judge me. And that’s what makes her as beautiful inside as she is on the outside…
I got to meet Steven (aka. buzz lightyear ) for the first time on the shoot in downtown. He seems so sweet, and I’m glad she has a man that treats her like she deserves to be treated!
Here are a few of my favs..
When I was editing these, Steven’s smile reminded me of Buzz Lightyear.. so that’s his new nickname according to me
They so purdy.
Anyway, it was kind of a ‘thing’ that we would go together on spring break every year to Panama City. Her big sister, Mandi, would keep an eye on us in exchange for us not doing anything too stupid. Mandi was a sort of big sister to me, too. She taught me not to get too upset with my then boyfriend (now husband) over stupid things. The world lost Mandi to cancer a little over 5 years ago. It is hard to believe it has been that long. She was a great teacher in many ways, and she is missed every day. If you want to donate to her Relay for Life team “Missin’ Mandi” click here!
P.S. Nik, I had a REALLY embarrassing picture of me and you at the beach that I wanted to include.. I think we both had braces :)… but I can’t find the album.
I’m crying Molly!! Thank you so much for the concluding statement above at the bottom! Mandi loved getting to go to the beach every year even though she was boring and read her book the whole time…well except that one night we talked her into going back to Applebees and she gave that guy her number! hahaha such good times! I had such a good time with the photo session…and every year at the beach too! I think I know exactly what braces picture you are talking about and I must say…I’m glad you can’t locate it! I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos and you again!!! Love you Moll! Thank you for being such a good friend!
Ok so I was so excited to see the photos I completely missed your lead in story at the top, the first time around! Now I am laughing!! Poor ole Mrs. Harrell let us get away with so much! You are definitely one of my fav peeps of all time as well and strangely I always feel I can be completely be me as well! We are so perfect for one another! 😉 My fav pic above is the one when you shot from above with our eyes closed! I also really love the Oak tree idea you had…although the orange dress makes me look pregnant in a few lol! I love them all! I am more than pleased!!!!!
