...my bff...


today is a very important day~~ it's my bff's birthday! let me introduce you to the lovely mrs. julie lamotta... without her the last few years would have been a heck of alot more difficult and definitely much less fun!

julie is pretty much amazing.
she lives in orlando, has four kids (one of which she adopted from china last month), is married to a hottie italian american guy, loves jesus, and loves me!
here's a picture of her kiddos-- aren't they cute?


here are just a few of the reasons i love her:

1. just look at her. 'nuff said.

2. she's not afraid to take risks.. look at her attempting to swallow fire! never a dull moment...


3. she makes really great faces.. we made a habit of this on all double dates..


4. she and joey like sushi. and wine bars. sushi + wine bars= perfect evenings out.

5. she sings. and fearlessly to wii american idol. check out her style-- amazing :)

6. she listens well, loves me unconditionally, trusts me completely, shares her heart with vulnerability and transparency, and is pretty much without compare as a friend...

my prayer for you, my dearest friend, is that this next year would be without compare in your life.. that your family would thrive... your intimacy with jesus would reach levels it never has before.. and that you would realize your unmeasurable value as a friend, a mom, a wife, and a daughter of the father! grace and peace to you without measure julie dee! happy birthday!
