ASHLEY.::.PHOTO.SHOOT.

i needed a fun girls day. and who better to share that day with than ashley. ashley can light up the room, any room. ashley is full of grace, strength, compassion, elegance and beauty.

i met ashley in 2004 at paul mitchell cosmetology school. ashley remembers our first conversation about an eyeshadow one of us were wearing, but i remember things a little different. i was a hair model for class. actually i was a hair dummy. to this day i still dont know why i eagerly held my hand up in class other than the fact that our teacher was quite attractive. ok ok he was extremely attractive and i couldnt resist! ashley was in my class and begging me not to do it. did i mention he was about to shave my hairline? here i was torn between a hot hair butcher and a girl who i had never met who who cared about my hair. haha, that sounds really superficial but seriously, when your in hairschool you want to have cool hair!

ashley has been one of my best friends ever since. she was brought into my life to help me through some of the hardest times. her friendship and love have helped shape me into the woman i am today and for that, i am forever thankful.

isn't she stunning!!!
