cupcakes for breakfast

I have a good friend. I have known her for almost 30 years. She lives next door.

We have been through a lot over the years. We have been to weddings, christenings, funerals, reunions. She was with me in my first delivery room experience, and I was there at the arrival of her first born.

We like to go walking and shopping and eating, sometimes we even vacation together. We talk about what the kids are up to, talk about family, sisters, husbands, local gossip, the usual girl talk.

I look up to her a lot, she is very adventurous, she is much more brave than I, done dangerous things that I would be too scared to try.

I also admire her great sense of style, she likes to get dressed up.

She is a wonderful mom, likes to have fun with the kids and get involved in their activities.

She is a fun sister and a good daughter.

She has accomplished a lot in her young years, she makes the most of every moment. I know her parents, and they are very proud of her. I am proud to be her friend.

If I know her, and I think I do, she is having cupcakes for breakfast today.

Happy 29th birthday to my pal for life, Melissa!

You're lucky to have such a friend so close by, and it's obvious that you realize and appreciate it. And for the record, she IS adventurous and brave. Even in my youth I never got close to wanting to do the things she 's done!

Much to Melissa's disappointment, I rushed her out of the house to go shopping too fast for cupcakes. She made me stop and get her a bacon biscuit instead. I think she has evil plans that will result in the devouring of some cupcakes later today. Now I just have to figure out how to get her to Joe's Crab Shack for lunch.

She sounds like a wonderful person! Cupcakes for b'fast would be great any day but especially on a birthday.
