When we went down to Tucson last month for Marie and Ben's wedding, we stayed with my best friend in the whole world, Shelley. Shelley and I have known each other since we were in 4th grade. We've been inseparable since the 5th grade and that says something since we've lived across the country from each other since the 10th grade. There are connections you make with some people that span time and distance. You can go years without seeing each other but the second you are in the same room with them, it is like no time has passed at all.
I was so happy to be able to make it to Tucson for the wedding and be able to spend some time with Shelley and her family in the couple days I was there. Shelley has two kids, Daymian and Raven, that I have watched from afar change from babies to young kids but I was never able to see her pregnant. She is pregnant with her third baby (fourth when you include her amazing little step son Gavin who is hubby Adam's kid) and it was awesome to see her actually pregnant this time. The day I left we got the kids all together and did some family and belly shots. These are some of my favorite pictures ever because of what the people in the pictures mean to me.
Daymian, Shelley's oldest was not so into the camera, and it took me aback thinking that Shelley and I were his age when we first me! (and I am sure we were just as moody lol)
And we had to get a pic of me, Shelley and Linc. It was a must!
