On someone’s birthday

buon compleanno a me

Today is my dear friend Kim‘s birthday. It seem impossible that a whole year has gone by again… and even more impossible is the fact that I haven’t seen her for more than 12 months. When I was home over Christmas, we were supposed to meet up, but unexpected illness thwarted our plans and I am still bummed about it.

Kim’s one of the people you want to call your friend. Trust me on that one. Kim used to have a blog and I wish I could encourage you to head over and start getting to know her. You wouldn’t regret it. Unfortunately, she has been on an indefinite hiatus, which I guess means that I get to keep her for myself after all. We’ve been friends for 10 years now. As so many of my friendships these days, ours started out online, but quickly turned into an IRL friendship. The transition has never been easier with anyone. The fact that I can’t spend more time with her is a tragedy really, because she’s one of the people I can feel completely myself around and God knows how deprived I feel of real quality girl time. If you want somebody who sticks with you through thick and thin and listens when other people have long given up, she’s your girl.

I wish I could be there in person today to help celebrate the wonderful person that she is. Since I can’t, I am just going to extend some birthday wishes via the Internet. Because hey, that’s how I roll (plus, there is mail on its way. Naturally!).


Happy Birthday, dear friend.

On your special day, I wish..

… that you feel as special as you’re to me.

… that you get all you wish and hope for.

… that you wake up giddy like a little child.

…that the  work load is light today.

… that you indulge and get spoiled.

… that there are birthday presents coming your way!

… that you feel loved and appreciated by the people around you.

… that people shower you with tweets, emails and letters.

… that this new year is going to be even better than the last one.

… that you always remember how much your friendship means to me!
