IMG_0719Today is my oldest, dear friend’s birthday. She is more like a sister and is a second mother to my kids, especially Baldwin. She is Baldwin’s godmother and today, before the day ends, I just wanted to say Happy Birthday Joni. You are the best person I know.

    love the simplicity of your statement about Joni. Joni and Baldwin’s love for each other radiates through this picture. Love the juxtaposition of their hair. You are all so fortunate to have each other!

    Yep, she is a one of a kind person and friend. We laughed for so long this morning that I had to drain and re-fill my tub twice! Yes, I talk on the phone from the tub!! She knows it and expects it. Very nice tribute Neal for her birthday! Love reading your blog!! And can’t wait for the book!

    Thank you so much for the warm birthday wishes!! As I sit here with mascara running down my cheeks I am grateful that the photo is a side view ( such “ugly face” crying always happens at the airport!)
    Somewhere I read ” to have good friends you must be a good friend” and I have always found that to be true. Maintaining great friends can be challenging and exhausting at times but the rewards are so worth it. I can say that I surround myself with some great friends and I try to be the best friend I can be!
