Now, as far as gifts go, a girl could ask for sensible items such as ridiculously cute shoes, or that gorgeous new Coach purse. She could ask for a fabulous dress that makes her feel like a million bucks, or she could ask for a new personal favorite gift of mine - a massage to get rid of all the stress in her life. Some girls like a good book to curl up and read. Some love things that are so sparkly they sear your corneas if you look directly at them. (I'm not saying that I would say 'no' to that last one if you really, really wanted to give me that!) ;)
But this year, you will all have a very difficult time gifting me something better than my friend Nay has. I'll tell you why. She has beyond blessed me with the honor of standing beside her as she marries the absolute love of her life - her best friend, (and a good friend of mine), DK.
The thing about Nay is that, even though she is older than me, I've always been exceptionally protective over her. She is genuinely one of the best people that has ever walked the face of this earth, and she is such a catch! Lucky DK! She is a fantastic cook, she is truly an artist (you should see her paintings), she does graphic design, she has a knack for looking flawless ALL THE TIME, and she is absolutely hysterical! I mean, the girl will keep you rolling with her witty comments and one-liners. Not to mention, she is absolutely GORGEOUS. See?

But here is what is important: In the years that I had known her, I had never seen Nay light up the way she did when she talked about DK. I knew in that very first moment that this one was different. This one was special. Like every couple, they had their ups and downs, but it was adorable to watch them all twitterpated, and it was awesome to see them as their relationship grew into a powerful and very real love.

So, that is why this year will be the best birthday ever! I have to say a huge THANK YOU to Nay and DK for giving me the greatest gift of all - their love and friendship. I could not be more proud if I tried, and I could not be happier for two people who deserve all the love and the happiness that life has to offer. They are great for each other, and I am so incredibly excited to take part in their big day.
Here's to friends!
Here's to love!
Here's to friends in love!
Until next time,
