Happy Birthday Kirsten!

Hey everybody!

Our best friend is having a birthday today! Kirsten Blowers, owner of Riffraff in Fayetteville, is celebrating today - and since we're apart (she's in Austin for a workshop, and we're in Chicago for family time), I thought I could give a fun shoutout on here (here's a shot of the two of us at Riffraff's recent Holiday Open House).

And now some sappy stuff: Kirsten is a dream friend. She is thoughtful, creative, generous, fun, silly, smart, and loyal. Pretty much all of my favorite qualities wrapped up in one BFF. She's such a sweet Aunt Kiki to Baby Cece, and always showers Ellie with gifts... she really is one-of-a-kind in every way.

Love you Kirsten!

P.S. Here are s'more pics from the party:
