Bella and I have been friends for over four years (according to our friendship page of facebook!). I remember the first time I slept over her house.
I was nervous because I’d only been over her house a few times and I didn’t really know her family that well. We started the evening at Ella Bella’s, a dance studio/cafe/music venue, and saw some local bands play, then my mom drove us down the road to case de Bella. We laughed for nine hours straight that evening. Nine hours. I’d recommend that Ab workout. It’s perfection.
Since then we’ve become fantastic friends. We’ve gone to concerts together, different states (woot woot Nashville!), and we’ve also had lots of sleep-lacking sleepovers. My personal favorite was this year.
Over winter break, I got snowed in over at Bella’s and we spend the next few days playing Wii Party and singing Glee Karaoke!
Bella just graduated. She’ll be getting her GED shortly and after working her butt off for a year she’s going to study art education. So in celebration of her transition from high school kid to almost adult, we took some “Senior” pictures. We drove over to her grandparents farm/house and traipsed around in the fields.
P.S. That face up there will one day be winning the Amazing Race. #fact.
