Sweet Baby (the beauty of friendship)

You know those people who inspire you to become a better person? Well, I can top that: I have a friend who sees me now as the better person I could be and somehow I believe her. She has this way of seeing beauty and possibility and making them happen. She also has this insight into seeing what I need before I realize there is even a need.

The morning of my college graduation, she showed up with coffee and muffins and drove me to my ceremony. My wedding day, she was the one who made sure I was fed all day and had a cooler of snacks in our getaway car. Without her, I would eat but wouldn't feel near as special.
This girl has always had style and taste far beyond her years. While I wore the same pair of Doc Martens everyday, she would show up in pearls. Always appropriate, but so much better than I would have thought up.

Shelby took up sewing and I am so excited. She has such a great way of putting things together. She sees possibility in things as well as people.

This Summer, she took the day off work and made the more than a few hours drive to come and see us. AND she came with presents:

My dear friend has opened an Etsy shop and I'd love for you to check it out! Let me know you're favorite item! Maybe we can twist her arm into a giveaway ;)
