a letter to the birthday girl

happy birthday doll. blow out a candle + make a wish.


whit, we've been through life together. i cannot imagine my life without you in it. sweet haircuts and homemade highlights, tap shoes and prom night, baggy jeans and skinny jeans, swim lessons and laying out, pre-school and college, boyfriends and breakups, cranberries and counting crows, slumber parties and roadtrips, rollerblades and drivers ed, abercrombie and anthropologie, jane fonda and yoga, days of our lives and the bachelor, angela chase and felicity, pumpkin chocolate chip and thin mint ice cream, moving away and moving even further away, letters in the mail and lengthy emails, photo booths in the mall and blogs on the web, falling in love and falling head over heels, walking down the aisle and having a baby, becoming a wifey and becoming a mama. life changes you. thank goodness best friends are forever.

enjoy your twenty-eight sun salutations with your yoga class of college football players. i only wish i could creep into the corner and watch you work your magic with those mister tough guys. today i should be at your door with a cupcake. instead i give you a little happy birthday blog post and a smiley emoticon just for you.

:)

as a side note.
