Ashley has been my best friend longer than I can remember. We bonded on an elementary school bus over a shared love of Pokemon, Girl Scouts and mutual weirdness. That's been almost fifteen years ago, but we're still just as weird as ever.
Now, Ashley's a mom and we're both married. Gone are the days of listening to Outkast on a boom box in the driveway trying to catch a tan with baby oil or making up dance routines in the swimming pool to Sir Mix-a-lot songs. These days, Ash is getting ready to graduate from culinary school.
Now anyone that knows Ash knows that she's always been a bomb cook, but now she's a professional and I couldn't be more proud of her for balancing the daily stress that comes along with being a mom and a military wife with going to school full time and working.
We had so much fun putting these pictures together and sweet Layla got to play too, showing everyone that she's two going on 24, but still enjoys cupcakes as much as the next toddler.
