happy birthday Melissa!!!

So yeah she may kill me for writing about her… but I just had to do it!!


I so wish that I could be there to celebrate your 26th birthday with you (can you believe we’re both 26 now?).  I do hope you have an absolutely amazing day because you deserve it 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

I just want to tell you that you mean the world to me and I am so incredibly thankful that God put us in each others lives 18 years ago.  The past 18 years have been amazing and watching our friendship grow/strengthen/blossom has been fun.  I have loved growing up with you & sharing life with you!!!  It’s funny because we’ve lived away from each other the majority of our friendship, but through multiple moves, going to different colleges, making lots of new friends, me moving half way across the country… you’ve always stood beside me, listened to me, hugged me, and then jumped right back in where we left off, even when we’ve been uber busy.  You are the best friend anyone could ask for, and somehow I got lucky enough to have you as mine.  You are an amazing woman & I feel so blessed and honored to have you in my life.

I love you Melissa, and I CAN’T WAIT to hang out again (we need to figure out when we can do that.. fyi 😉 ).  Enjoy today!!!
