Melissa and I have known each other since our first year of university. Over the past four years, our relationship has gone from acquaintances to co-workers to best friends to roommates. Today, she is 23 and I'd like to share a few reasons why I'm lucky to have her in my life:
She is the best coffee-guzzling, top-of-your-lungs-singing, heart-to-heart-talking, picture-taking, road trip buddy ever.
She is an amazing cook. Seriously. And she knows how to barbecue.
When I was doing shift-work, she brought me supper and energy drinks.
She organized my 22nd birthday celebration and made sure there were balloons!
She listens. It doesn't matter if I'm angry, complaining, excited, or sad, she's always there.
Girl can dance! Especially when the music is Michael Jackson's.
She has a super soft bed and doesn't mind if I fall asleep on it.
She appreciates a good chick flick and loves it when I laugh my "watching TV" laugh.
She doesn't mind when I decide that her room is a good place for a dance party (in my underwear, no less).
She cares about her friends and family so much and does more for them than I think she realizes.
Melissa, you are so beautiful, inside and out. Happy birthday!
