Happy Birthday to the only other person in the world who's seen When Harry Met Sally as many times as me
Laura and I have been friends since grade 9 - part of that gang of kids that I told you about who used to get together and play instruments, take road trips (sometimes called "band trips"), watch movies over and over again, and thought we were badass, but really weren't.
Today is Laura's 28th birthday. Being the hard worker she is, it's entirely possible that she's spending the day studying for another exam. She works full-time AND is studying to get her MBA with her hubby, Jay. I really hope the two of them are taking the evening off tonight!
(Laura is one of those people who works extremely hard but always knows how to have a good time (and not in the "for a good time, call ______ " kind of way). )

I can't help but remember all of the great birthdays we've spent together over the years, and hope we'll go back to East Side Marios again sometime to eat that ridiculously decadent chocolate cake and have them embarass you with their singing.
We've been through a lot in the past 15 years (can you believe it's been THAT LONG?!),and I'm so glad that we're still friends after all of the ups and downs... I will never watch When Harry Met Sally without thinking of you, or hear anything by Moxy Fruvous or the BareNaked Ladies without remembering all of the times we sang their songs at the top of our lungs (in crazy places like Philly's town square). We survived high school drama, a very nasty watermelon bomb, several years of university, and living in different cities.
I'm so glad you're going to be one of my bridesmaids because it means we'll get to hang out more often. It truly wouldn't be right getting married without you being a part of things...
I hope you have a truly fabulous birthday (that doesn't involve studying anything other than a huge glass of wine!)
Love ya lots,
