Rachel at Rachel Photography is hosting her first photo challenge and I'm participating! The theme for this week is you and your best friend. Growing up, I didn't really have a best friend, but my friend Melanie and I both shared a common love for guinea pigs. We got to know each other when she moved in next door when I was in third grade and she was in second and ever since then our friendship blossomed. We made two guinea pig calendars over the years with the help of Melanie's mom and had so much fun together!

Another friend, Sarah, was born in the same hospital I was 11 days before me in Papua New Guinea. It's actually her birthday today! Our families have become very close and we always go on vacation together. Her parents held her back a year in school, so that made it harder for us to do things together, but whenever we got the chance we would get together.
This is my favorite photo of Sarah and I, taken at Malolo Plantation Lodge in Madang, Papua New Guinea on a vacation with our families.
I love and miss these girls so much!
