Best Friends Forever! – Longview,WA Portrait Photographer

I thought I would post about a wonderful friendship I have had since 1992. Natasha as I call her though now she goes by Natalie…moved to the US from the Ukraine and became my next door neighbor in Vancouver, WA. She knew very little English but we had plenty of fun nonetheless. I tried to teach her English and she taught me some Russian/Ukrainian stuff. I now know how to speak and write the alphabet and say some phrases and can read it but not understand it all. lol. Through the years we moved around but always kept in touch. I love her like a sister and am so glad to have such a wonderful friend in my life now and forever. Thanks girl!

Here we are back in September of 1992 in our backyard.


And here we are June of 2009 with our families at the park.

Here she is with her family.
Here’s Both our hubby’s with all the kids. They have one and we have 3.
