Happy Birthday Talina!

Today is one of my very best friends in the whole wide world's birthday. We have known each other for going on 17 years now. That is most of our lives! It is funny to think that it all started when I moved into her ward in 3rd grade, and now she lives in my ward. I love that it has come full circle. Church is so much more fun with her. Grocery shopping is more fun with her too. I love that we can call each other up at random times and request company to Smiths, or Walmart, or the library. If we go out shopping together the one with the purpose always spends less than the one thats moral support. So keep that in mind if you ever go out with us.

I love Talina so much. She has been such a great support to me for as long as I have known her. She is a big reason I wanted to go to church as a child, and she is a great example of a faithful, beautiful woman everyday. She is a sounding board, a buoy, a Redwood, and so much more. I don't know what I would do without her.

Happy Quarter of a Century Talina! Here's to another!

Yay for me!
Thanks for the birthday post. I will be sure to rub it in that you OBVIOUSLY love me more than Hilary since she has neglected to write one for me as of yet. :)
Thanks for the kind words. And ditto. To all of it. . . except you were the one who made me want to go to JUNIOR HIGH every day when we were younger so that says alot about just how much I liked your company ;)

So, it's apparently true Talina. Lena DOES love you more than your own family :-)
Good work getting this posted Lena -- Beans has been bugging me all day about writing one :-) Funny thing is -- I think I'm gonna use that same picture!
