Happy Birthday BABBO NATALE!

Today is Babbo Natale's Birthday! 

(Babbo Natale, MK, me and Barbie)

Babbo Natale and I met about 4 years ago.  We were at a mixer after work and had on the same Lilly scarf.  I'm wearing that scarf in the picture above, actually, which was taken on another occasion shortly after we met.  This time we had on the same sweater!  We knew it was meant to be :)

Babbo Natale, MK and I traveled to Italy.  The picture above was taken in Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy in November 2007.  When you travel with friends to a foreign country where you don't speak the language you really learn a lot about each other!  Fortunately for us, we learned we were a great team :)

I was going through pictures just now....trying to find "a few" to post, and it was then that I realized that even though I've only known Babbo Natale for 4 years....she has been such a huge part of my life! 

She was there through my FREE PARIS! stage:

We go to the Pink Ribbon Polo Cup every year together:

We've had bunches of friends get married:

And we are in wine club together:

Babbo Natale...I am so thankful that we found each other that day!  My life would certainly not be the same without you.  I cannot wait to celebrate YOU on Saturday at Bowties & Belles.  Mwah!

Because today is Babbo Natale's Birthday, that also means that today is the last day to enter my 100th FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY !  If you haven't entered, be sure to do so HERE!

Ha! I met my best friend becuase we had the same swimsuit on at the neighborhood pool in the 4th grade. Same clothes mean you have the same style, of course you bonded!
