My girl, Zelda, is having a birthday today.
She likes her politics and her boys.
She's a fan of a cocktail in moderation. And sometimes out of it.
Shoes and chocolate are, of course, a favorite combination. Though on the first night we cemented our friendship it was shoes and beer...and swing dancing.
I love her zest and her laughter.
I love her direct sort of kindness and I can only hope one day to develop half the savvy she has about the people around her.
Most of all she loves her friends. She loves us all so much and for that I am truly, truly grateful.
Happy Birthday, sister. Eat good food, drink good drinks and have good fun with good friends. I love you.


  1. Love those shoes!! And Zelda looks like the funnest person in the world to have as afriend. You're lucky, and so is she!

  2. Thank you thank you thank you! I love this. I love you. I wish I could frame it. I wouldn't frame you, but if I could it would mean that you were at my house, and I would have that ANY DAY!
    I love you sister. from that first drunken porch dancin/outside peein/laughing till we hurt night right up to now. Ten years?
    all made better because of you.

  3. Happy Birthday, Z!

    We'd get along just swimmingly. If you're ever in OH, come find me, will you?
