Fairy Tale Birthday

Today is my sweet friend Heather’s birthday. Do you wonder why all my friends are “sweet friends”? Well, it’s because they are! Seriously, I have been blessed with the most lovely, happiest, kindest people, and Heather is certainly at the top of that list. She's also simply adorable! I’ve known Heather since middle school and we have stayed in touch for fourteen years. Can you believe it? Sometimes I can’t either! We went to different middle schools, high schools, and colleges, and though there were times where we lost touch for a little while, we could always pick up right where we left off. Isn’t that the best when you are able to do that?! When we were in middle school, Heather and I kept notebooks that we would write in and then exchange when we saw each other next. It was maybe the coolest thing ever. I wish we still lived close enough to do this still – heck, I wish I had been able to see her in the past YEAR! – but I suppose blogging is the next best and most convenient thing.

Heather gets this card for her birthday:

No handmade shananigans for this princess! I saw this card at Target (obviously, that’s where I would buy my cards!) and although it was probably meant for a 5-9 year old, I absolutely had to get it. Want to know why? Well, because Heather, my dears, has found her happily ever after. She’s going to live the life of a fairy princess and have her very own pink castle and unicorn, complete with a stud muffin prince who is getting back from Iraq in less than a month! Oh, and she'll also have heart shaped doorknobs and live on a cloud (very important).  The princess has waited and waited, and her patience is about to pay off. Don’t you just love love? She maybe has the best love story ever, and I think you should check it out here.

Dear Heather,
I hope you have the happiest birthday ever. Although maybe next year will be even happier, since you’ll be Mrs. McDowell by then, and that’s kind of a big deal, you know! Thanks for being you, you sassy little thing! Can we please have a visit? Soon?
Tess (in Germany!)

I'm back at work today after a fun birthday weekend and I'm eating my lunch, while reading your blog. I like to call this my down time/mental break. I now have tears in my eyes. I love you so much. I hope you are having so much fun in Germany.... I will read today's blog after I post this comment. Can't wait to talk to you. I love you and my fairy princess birthday card.
