it’s melissa’s 37th birthday—how can that be?  where has the time gone?  wasn’t it just yesterday that she was eliza’s age?  and why is she older than me, anyway???

we’re headed to the show shortly, so i don’t have time to craft the perfect tribute.   if you know me well, you know how it is with us, anyway.  so here’s a toast to the gal who amazes and awes me…i love you more than words can say.   happy happy happy always and forever.
