Half My Life & I'm better for it.

This is my best friend Christi Noel Unterwagner Welsh. I realize that you don't really call people your best friend after you're in high school...but that is where we met, so it still works. I met her when I was 14 years old. I wish I had a pic of us then. I was a stunner in High School...let me tell you. Since I met her at the age of 14 I have known her for HALF of my life, as I am now 28. I seriously can't believe that. She is not perfect, but close to it. She is now married and has two kids. Our lifestyles are very different, but we still are kindred spirits.

Here are some reasons why I love her still. She is....

~Beautiful (mostly on the inside)
~A great cook
~A ridiculously awesome mother
~A lover of laughter (i.e. laughs at my jokes)
~Pure in Spirit
~Can almost eat more ice cream than I

Here are some photos of her family. They look like they should be in a magazine or something.

I love you Christi....Thanks for being mine.
I win.
