So, yesterday was my best friends birthday. Her name is Natasha Rae Brandt and she is the cutest thing! She is always kind and sweet and never has a mean thing to say about anyone. She has been there for me through many things and we talk almost every day! I met her about 4 1/2 years ago for the first time. Her husband and Phil had met at Fairbanks Police Department where Allen was a new Police Officer and Phil was the Chaplain(this was a year before I met her). Phil attended their wedding and then started having a Bible Study with Allen at their apartment. Phil invited them to our Annual Fall Party and that is where I met Natasha! I still remember her in her flannel shirt and pig tails! She was SO cute and super nice…..a little shy since she came by herself and didn’t know anyone but Angela and Phil!
What began as a random visit to someone’s house began a TREMENDOUS friendship! I don’t know what I would have done without her the last 4 years. We’ve been through so much together and I remember her there those days when I just couldn’t handle life. She’s sat with me while I cried, laughed with me, danced like crazy with me, told me to straighten up when I’m having a bad attitude, and even given me fashion advice ( thanks…..I really needed it). We have gone to Hawaii together, been pregnant together, gone fishing together, shopping together, sleepovers together( when our hubby’s left us for Chitina), played cards together( and beat the guys)!!! , we’ve even had a few little spats together. Even through all that…….we’re still friends. She means a lot to me and I just wanted everyone to know that I have one of the BEST FRIENDS EVER!
So……..HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATASHA! I hope it was a great day!
