I don’t often talk about her in blog form. But she’s been one of the most important people and constant support systems in my life.
If you ever hear me talk about how grateful I am for the inspiring, loving, supportive people in my life, you better believe she’s at the top of that list.
She’s a jet pilot and a devoted wife and a disciplined athlete and a brave badass and a talented skiier and an inspiration. Just to name a few roles she plays any given day.
I like to make people laugh. And I love to make both strangers and loved ones laugh. But there is no happiness or satisfaction I get more in any aspect of my life than making that chick laugh.
She works her butt off every single day. People sometimes compliment my work ethic. And while I appreciate it, I’m nothing compared to this woman. She’s does more in one day before I wake up than I can do in an entire week. I’ve never heard her make an excuse for anything or anyone in the 20+ years I’ve known her.
We don’t talk every day. Because we don’t have to. We know we’re always there for each other. No matter what.
We call each other BOP. I’d tell you why, but it’s a story about us. And this is about her.
I adore her. She’s my favorite person on the planet. She’s my best friend, my chosen sister, my biggest fan, my unconditional support system, and my daily inspiration.
I hope you’re lucky enough to have a best friend like her in your life.
But you can’t have her. She’s already taken, buddy, so back off.
Happiest of Birthdays, Bop.
