Happy birthday, Mandy!
One of my closest friends from college [and my Facebook wifey] celebrates her birthday today. I value her friendship, opinions, and our creative collaborations immensely. Can we please launch JiLTED within a month of my touchdown below the Mason Dixon line?!
The fact that we went six years without seeing each other before our reunion this Christmas should be criminal. Never again! But it’s pretty incredible we were even able to pull off a rendezvous….up until the last minute I didn’t think I’d be able to spend the holiday with my daughter. And she just so happened to be driving through Memphis en route to Jackson, MS while I was home. Don’t you just love those serendipitous moments when all the stars align? It meant the world to me that she got to meet Tatum. Next time she’ll meet Adam as well.
Bowling For Soup’s song “1985″ was my first choice for the musical selection, considering that’s the year of our birth. But then I remembered how much fun we had with this song during our freshman year at Ole Miss and had a change of heart. Mandy’s recommendations for new material I’d like are always spot on– she has impeccable taste in music.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
