mes filles, mein madchen, le mie regazze, mis chicas, mina flickor

Any way you wanna say it, these are my girls. I hope that each of you readers is lucky enough to have friends like this in your life. These are the ladies that are with me through thick and thin. They support me unequivocally (even when I might be *gulp* wrong) and let me down gently when they need to. They can tell it like it is one minute and be right back to joking the next. I love their kids like they are my own neices and nephews. They are there day or night and I know that if I needed to call, even at 4 am (sorry Lindsey) they would be right outta bed to help me.
Our friendship is fun and funny, there when you need it (and even when you think you don't). I have had more laughs, heart to hearts and good girl cries with these ladies than I can even begin to count. I would feel blessed if I even had one good friend like this, and I have four.
Recently, we decided that we needed a little photo shoot. Just for fun, and just for us. I keep joking that I am going to blow one of the images up huge and hang it up above my bed. :) We had such a blast. We went to the open air laundromat that my pal Kristie Serra told me about (she's another photographer who hails from Tampa but has recently moved to Seattle) and just ran around giggling like little kids. There was a guy sitting there on his phone the whole time and I can only imagine what he was telling his buddies "uuuuummmm. yeah. I am at the laundromat and there are a bunch of 20-something women here trying to do some kind of sex in the city photoshoot...."
Well, we had such a blast that I decided that every group of friends needed to do this as well. So, lucky you. I am proud to announce my "girlfriends" mini sessions! Maybe you have one good friend, maybe you have 10. Either way, get them all together for a fun time ALL ABOUT YOU! Or, maybe you haven't been blessed with friends like this who live close enough, but your daughter has. That's great! There's no age limit. 2 year olds, 12 year olds, and 30 year olds alike deserve to celebrate and remember the time with your girls.

Girlfriends rule!! I think you should be the Real Housewives of Florida. I have no idea if your friends are housewives or not, and I know you work like nobody's business, but it's still a fun idea.
