Today is the Mamala’s birthday! And guess what? I feel like a bad bubbala for not being with her today. You see, birthdays are a big deal in this family (I mean, I usually get a month to celebrate mine to put things into perspective) and she always, always makes a BIG to do of mine. But don’t worry, I do have tricks up my sleeve. So I’m posting a little somethin’ somethin’ because I wanted to say just a few small wishes before I’m able to celebrate the bejesus out of her when I fly down next week. So with that said…
Happy Birthday to you, Mamala. I wish you the happiest birthday and hope you’re having a exceptionally lovely day. I’m sorry I’m not there with you today but don’t worry, I would never short you on any and all proper celebrations of the oh-so-fabulous you because well, not only do you deserve celebrations to the nines but I can’t WAIT to see the look on your face when you unwrap what I have here, tied daintily with a bow, just for you. I know you’re dying to know what it is so I’ll give you one hint: it’s two of a kind. Yes, two - not one - because I loved it so much I got one too so we could be twins! Doesn’t that sound like something I would do? But it’s the only two in the entire world, and they’re ours. Just you and me, chicky. But that’s all I can say for now… aren’t surprises fun? It’s killing you inside…isn’t it (I secretly love this game because you do it to me all the time, ha!).
So next week it’s ON. You, me, presents, cupcakes + champagne. In the meantime, I hope you are being pampered today with love and pretty things that come in pretty packaging because I know you love that. And hey sister, did you see all the love on your facebook wall? There’s just something magnificent about checking your facebook on your birthday to see all the love and wishes from the family and friends who are thinking about you today. But that’s the thing about love, when you open your arms and heart the way you do for others, that love comes right back and it’s just for you. I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more.
Always and forever from me to you,
