28 YEARS AGO, I MET ERIKA AND LILY.
We were in Grade 1, and we had big plans. We created plays in our basements, called radio stations to request songs in our best English accents, and agonized over our crushes (well, maybe that was just me…). When we were old enough to drive, we took a road trip across Canada together, dancing on the highway and guzzling bright pink energy drinks. Thinking back, I actually quit my part time job to take that trip. #worthit.
In May, 2018, about ten years after that first road trip, we got the band back together and trekked out to Salt Spring Island, BC. Thankfully, we are still the crazy kids who like to play make-believe and sing Backstreet Boy songs. How lucky am I to have girlfriends that I’ve known almost 30 years?! Here they are, posing for portraits in the forest. I’m so lucky.
