She is a gifted artist, who is brave enough to not only create on a regular basis but to also put it out there and share it with the world.
She is a teacher, in Doodlebugheart and to me.
She is a student, ardently taking workshops and classes, always stretching.
She is a mother to a bright, energetic, beautiful kid.
She is a devoted wife, keeping house, career, and motherhood in balance as much as possible.
She has been a model and actress, so talented in both, and still sometimes chooses to pursue that, all while growing other parts of her life as well.
She is the truest of friends. One of those people that just makes you feel better for having been around them. A heart that really listens, and sympathizes. A brain that helps you figure things out. A laugh when you need it most, and not afraid for it to be at her own expense. A light when things look bleak.
She is my business partner and my dearest friend. She has been my support system, my oxygen, my motivation, and my shoulder. I love her dearly and I celebrate this special day.
Love you, Em.
