So last month, I got to shoot Cait in her natural environment. Frolicking in the desert that is (see above). Just look at her! In full Cait! And I couldn’t stop taking the photos. And it reminded me about why I love her so much.
Loyal to a fault. With the best taste. And honesty that knows no bounds. And magnetic. She draws you in and spreads her good mood even when you’re in the thick of it. She has every single quality in a best friend a girl could ask for. And I haven’t even gotten to gushing about how talented she is. I have so many favourite pieces that she personally designed for me. And I don’t think I have the space to expunge on how she’s my photo muse (see below).
According to Google, we are 13,191 km away from each other these days. Not 4km. While we’re not exactly happy about this, I know she’s always there, and up for a gush fest on everything from Gloria Steinem to Issa Rae, Glossier, and this little piece of the Internet we’ve built ourselves.
We set out on a journey together nearly three years ago. And we’re still on it. And I never want to get off of it.
So if you see her today. In person. On the Internet. Or however one sees another these days. Give her a big hug and wish her a happy birthday.
