*rachel, me, melany, lana
road trip to Newman CA 1999

Melany has been one of my good good friends since high school. Some of my fondest memories growing up are the times my sister, Rachel, and I spent hanging out with Melany, and her sister Lana. We went to countless dances, shows, road trips to San Francisco, and just hungout at her super fun house. They had the BEST hangout house with an amazing/huge back yard and a trampoline that sat in a hole so it was level with the ground!!! (It's funny how I grew up with a pool in my back yard but would rather jump on her trampoline any day of the week).

Anyway, so back to Melany. She is crazy talented and crafty and has opened up shop to give everyone the opportunity to benefit from her skills. She has an etsy shop with handmade hair accessories: jellabee, and a shop for baby hair accesories and other goodies: jellabee jr. She also has a blog that I love to stalk, you can check it out here. You're welcome.

Mel definitely has a flair for cute. What a good friend to give her shop a plug. Also, Wendy should be her Jellabee Jr. model. Adorable.

Wow, that pic brought back great memories. I agree with Mel, that summer was so fun. I remember getting ready for dances at your house and trying on each other's clothes and me and your cousin Joey going on a date. That was a fun summer. And, ditto about Mel, she is crazy talented.
