celebrating my BFF..

today is my dear friend's 30th birthday!

i met her for the first time in 2001..and it wasn't til about 2005 that our friendship truly began.

she moved this fall to the island to be near her fiance, a guy i went to youth camp with..yes i introduced them. :) my first and last successful matchmaking endeavor!

i miss her lots..but what i miss the most is just seeing her smiling face everyday..she lived in a suite in our place here in vancouver for the last year and a half.. it's not until something is gone, that you realize how much it really meant to you. :)

she is beautiful, articulate, creative, funny, smart, caring, loving, thoughtful..and she is quirky, a tad OCD, a little odd, and dorky too. :) just like me! that is why i love her.. she is such a spectrum of wonderfulness. :)

so happy birthday dear friend..i miss you everyday. and love you more.
here's to celebrating 30 years of wonderful you! xoxox
