    Family Of Choice

    That's what my friend Angel calls it.  I like the sound of it.  Through good times and bad, we've all laughed and cried together.  We've all pinched our pennies and scraped together whatever we could when someone needed it.  We've all stood side by side to show support...

    I love my friends. Just like my family we argue

    and joke around all the time. And they are really on honest with me. Like when I showed my pictures (the one for the cover is one of them) to one of them and she said I could be a ********. LMFAO! Although I joke around saying it I'm not fully committed to that.
