I may be a day late, but I sure as shit will not be missing out on this celebration of one of the most beautiful and purest people on this planet. There’s been a handful of times this year where I’ve looked at my dear friend and thought, wow, it hasnt even been 3 months/6 months/9 months since knowing her and how strange that thought is. I met @ashleyparklady at the Valentino couture show not even a year ago yet (WHAT?!) and she has changed my life exponentially. You know when you come across people where your humour slots into place instantly, your memories form with every minute you have the pleasure of being in their company, and most importantly, their way of being wraps around you so tight and lifts you up so high that you’re confused they were never there before? I feel very lucky that my doors slid and allowed me to love and learn from this special lady. Celebrating yesterday, today, tomorrow.. and so on.. is so easy to me because life is a lot sunnier since Ashley came into it. And the coolest thing? She shines her awesome light on everyone she comes into contact with. She is as gorgeous and interested and sparkly and involved with everything and everyone. Fuck it, let’s celebrate Ashley month. Happy birthday month my sweet. I knew from our first pasta photoshoot (we’d only known each other for a matter of minutes) that you were the Parmesan to my bowl of plain pasta.
