Today is the day. One of my oldest friends in the world (in length of time I have known her, not age) had her first baby. I have been friends with her for 36 years. I grew up in her house. I got in trouble by her parents. I have more memories than I could begin to count with her.
She lives in Istanbul and I have taken my own daughter to see her and spent weeks and weeks on holiday with her. She is such a huge part of Saige's life. Like a second Mom, but a super cool one that lives in Turkey and does work for Oscar de la Rente. It makes me beyond happy and to I feel so lucky to have her in my life. Now, today, she has her very own little baby daughter. It almost feels like part mine, in a tiny, miniscule way. I will make sure I have some part in this very blessed little girls life, just like she does with Saige. I will always be there when she thinks her Mom's being to much. I will remind her Mom of when we were kids, the things we did. I just can't wait.
So Happy Birthday Lale! We are so excited you are here!
