My dearest Kristen,
Despite being away to see my family the past few days, I found my self thinking about you and your coming birthday and I wondered why and how you have become so dear to me to feel happy to be back in time just to wish you a happy birthday:)
I watched you grow into the lovely star that you are and though mighty 17 years separate us you would have been a precious friend.
Kristen, you have inspired me and made me rediscover myself. I taught myself blogging and photo editing which have become a means to express my great admiration of you and your talent.
I couldn't think of a gift other than my true love, you are my muse:)
