Oh, What a (mon)Day.

Typically, Monday's fall at the bottom of the good ol' "days of the week totem pole." They're slightly worse than Fridays (which means nonstop class and work from 9am - 10pm), much worse than Sundays and about level with Wednesdays.

But today, today was different.
(Even if I overslept... by an hour.)

Most mondays don't start with 83 degree weather, tiny swim suits and even tinier sunglasses. Beach towels spread in the grass. Mud soup being mixed in a pale blue bucket. Most mondays aren't like today.

Most mondays don't include seeing Kasey, blowing bubbles, easter baskets or plans to bedazzle a walker.

Most mondays don't end with best friends and little brothers at the park, swingsets and see-saws.

Followed by a good dose of kitty playtime.

And most mondays aren't Maddie Hill's birthday. So to celebrate her birthday, here are a few pictures of us together over the past year.

I think it was a sign that the first time I met Maddie, I stayed for hours longer than I planned. A week later and we were stuck together for almost forty-six hours. Now? She's esentially my little sister and my favorite teenager by far.

Rough point for Savannah and I but at least we were with two of our favorites.
Slightly embarassing?

Maddie Hill, I adore you to pieces and I'm so glad that THON made you a part (such a big part) of my life. I'm sorry that we don't get to spend more time together but I love every minute that we do. I can't wait to go shopping, talk about boys and sing to the radio with you & Katie. I hope your birthday was incredible because you deserve it. <3
