Happy birthday to Laura!
She’s my best friend from college and I love her dearly. We’ve had so many wonderful experiences together, and I treasure her friendship. I’m so happy we met at that freshman icebreaker event on the first day of college! (We bonded when I said I liked her shirt and she said, “Thanks, it’s from the thrift store!” – and I replied, “Mine too!!!”) It turned out that our love of thrift stores wasn’t the only thing we had in common, and we became fast friends. And I believe that Laura will be a life-long friend, even though the Atlantic ocean separates us.
Her sense of humor always makes me laugh, and she understands my humor too; she is a very intelligent and diplomatic person; she is creative; she loves to have fun; she thinks and feels deeply about things that are important to her; she has a heart for volunteering and helping others; she is encouraging and brave. I’m so thankful to have Laura in my life!
Here’s to wishing her an amazing 24th birthday and a fabulous new year of life! To celebrate, here’s a blast from our past:
I can’t wait to see her in July when I’m home in the States; we’ve scheduled a fun weekend together. I’m sure we’ll make many more memories– and take many more photos!
