Happy Birthday Katie

Today it's my bestest friend's birthday!!!  Happy Birthday Katie!!!

Katie has been my best friend since I was a sophomore in high school.  We met while playing volleyball and made a quick connection over our mutual love of the Backstreet Boys.  We also had a lot of other things in common; we played the flute together in band, both took French, loved going shopping and we had a lot of mutual friends.

Through the years, Katie and I been through a lot of great times and weathered a few not so great times together.  She's always been a shoulder to lean on, and she's there to lift me up when I need it.  I couldn't ask for a better best friend!  We've had a lot of fun memories and adventures together.  There have been many giggles, smiles and laughs.  There are so many to choose from, but here are a few of my favorites: 

While we were in college, we went to a Harry Potter conference in Las Vegas.

While there, we explored the Las Vegas strip!

We've had countless memories in and around Boston: Frog Pond ice skating, Six Flags, Duck Statues, Cheesecake Factory, Museum of Art, riding the T, Fire + Ice, walking the Freedom Trail, Quincy Market, hanging out at Wentworth, Museum of Science, movies, Hard Rock Cafe, and going to the top of the Pru to name a few.

We went to New York City with Eliot and BJ our senior year of college.  We went to the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, 5th Avenue, and Times Square.

We've explored Salem, Massachusetts over Halloween time a few times.

We've been to quite a few Beaux Arts Balls together.  After all, Katie's an "unofficial" Wentworth student according to our school president!  He he.

We have special memories around home: MDIHS, Bar Harbor, Acadia and camp.

I'll never forget our first trip to Walt Disney World together.

We've gone to a few Yule Ball concerts in Boston.  We love Draco... he he.

We went to each other's college graduations.  Go Class of 2008!!!

Of course, Katie was my maid of honor at our Disney Wedding.

We became wizards for a day at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  Butterbeer!!!

Finally, we did the Color Run last year and I'm sure we will many more times... 

As you can see, we've had a lot of fun through the years.  Katie, thank you for all of the wonderful memories that I cherish.  I can't wait for many more adventures together!!!

Finally, your birthday wouldn't be complete without our favorite Disney quote:

Mater: "I know it!  I knowed I made a good choice!"
Lightning McQueen: "In what?"
Mater: "My bes' friend."

Happy Birthday Katie!!!  °o°
