Emily's Answers

Today I want to introduce you to this infamous best friend/ stylist of mine that makes her way into almost every single post. Her name is Emily, and she's the bees knees. If bees had tiny little knees they would be Emily. She just radiates Jesus people! Like you can't not see Jesus when your around her. It's just not possible. It's also not possible to be bored when "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" is playing in the car and there's a significant amount of car dancing happening. Emily and I have been friends since third grade, so 14 years! We can't leave each other's side now, because it's way to hard to break in a new best friend. Emily is the Taylor to my Karlie, the Caroline to my Lou, the Pippa to my Kate, and any other dynamic dou you can think of. And you better keep an eye on her! She's going to conquer the world with a cup of coffee, a good pair of skinny jeans, and a great pair of stilettos, because that's what makes her beautiful!
