And happy birthday to my dearest and most wonderful sisterfriend! I love her dearly. And though we might not agree on everything, at the heart of it, we value the same things -- among them: strong family, good friends, human decency, and compassion. That, and her lively, sharp wit and wicked art skills make me admire and adore and respect her to the moon and back. And look, Ces, I gave you some snails so you can do that thing that you love so much. G'head. I won't judge. :)
Happy birthday, also, to Ces's beautiful sister, and my amazing and beautiful sister in law. Whew, what a grand day!
