For four-and-a-half years now she's been my dear friend, my confidante, my fashion consultant (I seriously needed help...these days, after several years of training, I can almost shop by myself without making bad decisions), my playmate, my cheerleader, my inspiration, and someone I know, without fail, has my back. She's shown me that magic is alive and well in this world of ours...she has connections, you know...and she shares with a generous heart of gold (I'm betting it's made of gold fairy dust).
I love you, my dear friend. My life and all those whose lives you touch are so much more vibrant and delicious because of your presence. Here is my flower for you on this day we celebrate the wonder that you are. Big hugs, darlin'!
