Today is one of my BFF’s birthday! We had a fabulous weekend of celebration. The pictures and play-by-play will appear soon, but for now, I am exhausted and can’t get my computer to upload my pics, so…I am going to just share a few thoughts about how great Sarah is.
Just after I moved back to Utah last year, I went to my friend Jennifer’s bridal shower. It was at her friend Sarah’s house. I wasn’t sure how I felt about this friend of Jen’s. She was the one throwing the bridal shower and I was a little intimidated. She was this über cool designer, with great style and taste, who had made the super cute shower invites. When I finally met her (after imagining just how cool she really was), all of my fears were confirmed. She was cute and stylish, with great fashion sense, and she had the upper hand…she had been living in Utah. She had friends. She didn’t need to be friends with me. (Yes, sometimes I really do think things like that.)
Without boring you with all the details (at least not again…since I have already written most of them on the blog), here we are, a year and a little later, and Sarah has become one of my very dearest friends. She has all of the same intimidating attributes she had when I first met her, but now I know that she really is one of the most selfless people in the world. I wish everyone could have a friend like Sarah. She is so talented and so generous with her talents. She is so busy, and yet so generous with her time (she created my banner…and actually, she took the picture that’s in it, as well). She is extremely wise, and yet she listens without giving advice, unless it’s solicited. And even then she doesn’t say much…just shares her thoughts and leaves it at that.
Sarah has been my partner in crime and foolishness for the past year or so and I can honestly say that this last year has been one of the best years of my life, and that is, in large part, due to Sarah.
Happy Birthday Sarah! I, for one, am very, very, very glad you were born (for very, very selfish reasons).
