Birthday Wish for Marta



This is whit here. Don't you love this picture of Marta and her little boy. Marta's eyes always had that pop of color and beauty. She is one of a kind little lady who turns 30 today!

So I'm hacking into her blog today because:

A. at this very moment she is moving into her cute, awesome, totally Marta house. I can just see her making list (on the fridge) of things to do first, and what to buy or she is putting her cute anthro bowls or collection of pitchers in her hutch

B. she doesn't have her internet hooked up at the moment, I can't wait to see her office all put together but as of last night her desk was surround by boxes

C. It's her 30th birthday and she is being spoiled and pampered by that hubby of hers and playing with that adorable little Benj

So at the moment you are stuck with me, her cousin who completely adores Marta. Those of you who know this little lady loves everything about her, she is one talented little writer and one creative little mama. She has always been artistic with that handwriting of hers, that drawing class that she rocked at and her letter pressing skills. She has always had the ability to brighten up the room and your day with her sense of humor and dancing skills. Marta is the girl to go to when you're having one of those days because she always looks for the best in any situation and gives the best advice in the world. She is a great listener, never complains or is negative. She's awesome at card games, story telling and can make you laugh at any moment. Marta truly is one of a kind, a breath of fresh air and blue skies.

Yesterday we packed and unloaded all of her boxes, cute furniture, toys and dishes into her home. Marta was there with doughnuts, juice, made sure we had water, turned up some music and was always thanking her helpers. She doesn't take anything for granted and appreciates her family, her friends, her new home, her blog, her readers and everything in her life. She truly is one of a kind.

Happy Happy Birthday to my favorite girl!

Now it's your turn to wish Marta a happy birthday.
