A letter to a friend.

Dear Kristin,

I have been thinking about the last 6 years and the changes our friendship has seen. When we met we each had 2 children. Soon, there will be NINE between us. I've moved twice. You've gone to New York! We've made jewelry. Enjoyed the "ocean trip" four years running. Seen Michael Buble from the second row. My first trip to Texas was with you. We've shopped in Seattle. Talked about the similarities between you and Ryan to no end. I've leaned on you through challenges. Sought your advice on mothering. And hoped everyday to become a little more like you. Thank you for being my friend. For the person you are and for all of the good times yet to come.

Have a lovely birthday, most dear friend!



  1. Happy Birthday Kristin!! We are all so lucky and blessed to call you friend. I hope you have a wonderful day!
