Happy Birthday, Carol!

Throw your hands in the air, and wave 'em like you just don't care, because...'s Carol's birthday!

When we say we go way back, we mean it.
I'll leave you to fill in the blanks as to which one is me and which one is Carol.

Yep, it's my shawty's birthday. And we're gonna party like it's her birthday.

And that's about as far as I'm going to go, with that song. (I really don't listen to a lot of Fiddy.)

And as you can see, Carol had style way back then. I could never rock pigtails the way she could.

Truth be told, Carol and I didn't actually know each other when this photo was taken. In fact, we didn't even know this photo existed until it was unearthed many years later, when my god-sister discovered it in one of those photoscanning-happy nights that people have when they reconnect with old friends on Facebook. For some reason, we had never made the connection that Carol and my god-sister went to kindergarten together.

We had always thought the oldest photos of us together were from when we were in high school, so it was pretty crazy when we found this one.

Oh, and another cool tidbit about this photo? Carol eventually married the little boy who's seated right in front of her.

Mind-blowing, isn't it?

Happy Birthday, Carol. My dear friend. May all your birthday wishes come true!
