Happy Birthday Dear Erica ...

I did the math tonight, my almost sister -- we've been friends for going on 16 years now. And here's what I know ...

Whether you're dressing up for Halloween using only dorm-room supplies ....



Having a good laugh (was it my bad posture, frighteningly red lipstick/fingernails, or gay soon-to-be-husband that you found so funny?)

Sipping gin and tonics before an impending downpour ...

Parading around in your underwear ... Giving me a dirty look for taking your picture when your feet hurt and you can't do the conversion from Danish Kroners to American dollars in your head ...
Or about to birth a baby ANY MINUTE ...
You just keep getting more and more beautiful! Love you E -- have the best birthday ever!

You know, I hadn't felt old until you said "16 years". Really? It couldn't possibly be that long, yet I feel like I've known you forever.
What a sweet, sweet, post, thank you for bringing a happy tear to my eye. I miss you lots, and I'll be thinking about you today as I do a little shopping and do a little sewing.

PS. And if ONLY I'd been about to give birth any minute when that picture was taken!!!

Happy Birthday, dear Erica.. Happy Birthday to you!

I've known you almost as long as K has and I've loved every minute that we've spent together.
