Thirty Years of Friendship and a Very Special Birthday

We met when she was hours old.

If you want to get technical, we really met months before that.

Our moms have been best friends since middle school, and nothing would do but that they have their first kids together.

So they did.

I was born in January, and R made her appearance on St. Patrick's Day, 1983.

So today. Today we celebrate her 30th birthday, and 30 years of friendship.

And there will be presents, and phone calls and dinner and more. But most importantly, there will be two girls with a beautiful shared history, and a future inextricably linked.

Happy birthday R. Here's to us, and to the next 30. Love you.
