Every year, my friend Helena and I spend our birthdays together. We started this tradition when we were just starting high school when we were finally allowed by our parents to hang out without their parental supervision. Growing up, we were always excited that our birthdays are just five days apart. This year, we decided to spend the whole day in Venice Beach and just catch up on the good times.
It's funny when you go down memory lane with someone who has known you for so long. Having been best friends since sixth grade, we've seen each other go through each other's ups and downs, awkward and embarrassing phases, as well as major milestones. Here are some of my favorite photos of us from over the years...
Happy birthday, Helena!
Here's to another great year of friendship and memories.
My thoughts, writings, and experiments. Big or small. They're here.
