Happy Birthday, Carol!

It's Carol's Birthday!


Just a quick little shout out from me today, wishing my dear friend Carol a very happy birthday!

Back in the day - and we're talking way back in the day - Carol used to take lots of pictures and cut them up and paste them to a poster board that she would lean against her bedroom wall. This collage dated all the way back to junior high school, so it was fun to go to her house after marching band practice (yes, we were those kids) and look at it, to see what she'd added to it recently and compare all the faces (and fashions) as time went by. This poster board grew and grew over the years until it became known as the Giant Collage.

I always loved that Giant Collage.

I thought it might be fun to make a miniature one for her today using various photos of us throughout the years, and share it with you all.




Carol, I hope this birthday is the best one yet! I feel so blessed to have had you in my life for over twent--er, for...a...long time. ^_- Our friendship is one that I cherish more than you know.

I love you!
