Open Letter :: Happy birthday, Katie!

This is a series I've been dreaming up doing on here for quite a while now; writing an open open letter to really anything that I feel compelled to write a letter to.  Pretty simple concept, actually.  The idea was kind of derived from this blog, but also from people, places and things that have impacted my life and I want to tell them/it just that!  The point isn't really for the person or things the letter is directed to to read it - it's more for me to put these words and thoughts out into the universe, because they are better there than in my head!  There is no better day to kick this series off than on March 5th, my beautiful sister's birthday!

Dear Kiki,

Happy birthday!!!  I really do believe that your birthday is the first birthday I ever memorized when we were little.  It always meant spring, big bouquets of balloons, the sweet blue of aquamarine as your birth stone, and evolved to calling in sick to work for sister mani-pedi's, spontaneous (3 hr!) trips to the outlet malls, flowers and breakfast in bed and the night of the first time Becky got mono.  ; )  I don't know if you will ever read this, but that isn't the point.  The point is for me to express how sincere and never wavering my love is for you, even if it is on a silly blog.  I pray to God every, single, day that you know how much I love you and how much I think about you.  If I can't tell you daily, I hope that He can in some way, shape or form.  I wish you a day as beautiful as your smile.  I wish you a day as beautiful as you heart.  I wish you a day filled with wonderful things that make you, your wonderful you.

Happy birthday to my best friend, and the biggest inspiration in my life.  

I love you!
