meet my besties: Laura

laura (osnes) johnson
(aka. la-la)

i met la-la before she met me. i voted like a super-fan when she competed for the role of "sandy" on natnl. television on "grease: you're the one that i want."
and discovered  that, not only is she the most brilliantly talented ingenue of my generation, she's also the most grounded, lovely, and thoughtful woman of substance.

we bonded over cupcakes, christian living, game nights, girls nights, movie nights, 
rydell high events and success celebrations. 
broadway baseball league . summer 2008 . central park
