Happy Birthday Michele!!!

I don’t know if my Birthday voice-memo ever went through, so as a backup I’m posting this… I’ve actually been trying all day to come up with the words to convey how absolutely grateful I am to have made such an incredible friend here.  

You have been such a huge part of helping me come out of my former hermit-like shell over the past couple of years. You are responsible for some of the greatest times I’ve had over the past decade, and for helping me meet so many wonderful friends. - I am certain that so many of the positive changes coming up in my life would NOT have been possible without your friendship & support. 

I love you, and I hope you’ve had an amazing time tonight (I truly wish I was able to be there to celebrate with all of you!).  I hope this year brings you ALL of the happiness, because you absolutely DESERVE it all!
