little Yianni's elephant birthday cake
I have this friend.
Actually, soulmate would be more accurate.
She's the kind of girl that when you're around her, you can't stop smiling or laughing. The kind of laughter that makes your ribs hurt.
I'd go as far as to say she's amazing.
Not every one understands her sense of humor, and like she loves to tell me time & time again, she's just not funny in Greek.
But to me, even when I want to cry she makes me laugh.
From the first time I met her, we were in love. Platonic love, but love none the less. She's me, or I'm her, just switch out the hair colour.
Same star sign, same age, same hight, same background. I'm telling you, it was meant to be.
For her, I'd do anything & everything. Including claiming the making of every single birthday cake her beautiful little boy will ever have. He's gorgeous, what a heart breaker that kid is going to be, and he looks more & more like his mama every day.
I love you beautiful girl.
...... & look at your handsome men xxx
