I remember the first day I met Katie, she was wearing the coolest vintage button up shirt with a butterfly pattern in burnt orange and brown. She had moved to our high school from out of town. We became fast friends.
Over 10 years later we are still very close even though we are so far apart, I'm on the West Coast and she's on the Gulf coast in New Orleans.
So Katie...if you're reading this....I hope you have a wonderful birthday with lots of adventures filling your new year.
P.S. - The sketches are by Ms. Katie. You can view some of her amazing paintings here.
