Happy Birthday Friend!
On a very happy note, today is the birthday of my very best friend, Marina. I'm glad I'm back in blog-land in time to write her an e-birthday wish. I think it's so cosmically-fitting that our bdays are exactly 9 months apart, and that I was born on the Vernal Equinox and she on the Summer Solstice. It's like the universe meant for us to be pals. By now I've got almost 11 years worth of awesome memories with Marina, and she's really the best friend a girl could ask for.
On a sadder note, Marina's very special dog friend, Peanut, passed away a week ago. He was a really wonderful dog, and was with Marina since he was a puppy and she was a pre-teen. Those are some very critical years. Of the many, many things that make Marina and me a perfectly-matched best friend pair is our unabashed love of dogs, especially black and white ones. I am so happy Peanut had Marina, and that Marina had Peanut. He's going to be missed, and I am sending some extra lovin' to Marina on this birthday.
