Fabulous Friendship

My high school besties are together a force to be reckoned with. Whether it be graphic design, landscape architecture or crafting; each of these woman are extremely talented in their own right. These creative woman provide me with constant inspiration and I'm in such admiration of the amazing work they do.

This week my girlfriend Kris won bronze at Melbourne's International Flower and Garden show. Two years ago she decided to follow her dream of landscape architecture and enrolled in TAFE. A full time mum, she studied at night and designed during the day, balancing this with running a household and working from home. She then won a place at the garden show for a design she entered through TAFE. It was a surreal moment to be standing at the official launch, champagne in hand, gazing at her beautiful garden 'reflections'. I am so incredibly proud of her achievements and her tenacity. We had a wonderful night and I felt so privileged to be able to stand by her side and support this amazing accomplishment.

Trace, you are so gorgeous! It was me who felt so privileged to have such great friends to share my triumphs and sorrows of life. I walked away that night not thinking about my success at the show, but thinking of my friends and what they mean to me. I consider you guys as my sisters in life.
