On Birthdays and Presents

Some gifts from our garden...

peas from the garden

And in black and white, just for fun...

peas in B&W

This year I tuned 30, which means all of my best girlfriends from college are turning/have turned 30 as well. The three of us who have already celebrated the milestone have been lucky enough to celebrate together. Last night we had some friends over for Carrie's birthday. I had intended to get a photo of the three of us girls together, but things got away from me. Luckily, our other friend Chrissie is a super thoughtful and talented photographer, and she snapped this shot of me and Carrie and our little girls.

Mommies and Babies and Friends

As you can see, we're both knocked up. She's due September 1st and I'm due September 30th. Our girls are only five months apart, and I'm so excited that the newest batch of kids will be close in age as well!

Visit Tracy at Mother May I for more photography fun!

I like the lighting of the pea photo. You all look fabulous, I cracked up when I read the line "As you can see, we're both knocked up."

Maggie said...

How great to have close friends, and to have kids who can be close as well.

Oooh, really like that first shot! I was gonna make a pea in the pod comment too but looks like everyone else had the same "original" idea.
