Happy Happy Birthday Annette!

 

I have been blessed to know this amazing Wonder of a Woman for 21 years, and I can't think of anyone I'd rather have had by my side on this roller coaster of life (although - I'm really sorry I made her go in "The Zipper"... but that's a story for another day).   We have been through some major ups and downs together.  Life has sent us in different directions at times - but somehow we keep finding ourselves thick in the middle of each others' lives.  We've navigated the turbulent waters of relationships, work place drama, moving house and letting go... divine self discovery, and the appreciation of intangable delights.  I have had the pleasure and pride of seeing this "Sister by another Mister" bravely find her voice (literally and figuratively) and explore hidden talents... showing a strength and self confidence that she brings to to any stage. There is so much wisdom, love and joy behind that beamy smile... and her sparkly spirit will forever be a part of mine!  

 

I Love You, Annette!   Have the Happiest of Birthdays!   

 

 

Every word is true....

I've never seen her without smile on her face. No doubt that is very contagious and will help lighten any difficult event. She is a friend in a million.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: She's not often without a smile! And yes - quite contagious. I'm so fortunate to have her in my life!

Oh! Thank you, bestie! I'm so touched! It's a real sweetness that we've had each other to lean on in the past 21 years (wow, has it been that long? Holy crap!). Laughter is good, so are lots of hugs and chocolate! Also, I have forgiven you for "The Zipper Incident" hee hee hee ;-). How about we do another 21 years woo woo!!! I love you, Elizabeth xoxoxox
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is sweet! And I'm not sure how 21 years have gone by - certainly neither of us has aged 21 years! smile
You're on... Another 21... and maybe another 21 after that! XOX
