24 Happy Birthday, Martina!

You know that girl who has it all? Brains, beauty, style, grace, personality, a kick-butt sense of humor, and a heart that has room for everything and everyone? And did I mention she can effortlessly write in a way that just makes you pause and say, "Um, wow?!?!" Well, Martina is that girl. It's no secret to those lucky enough to be in her life that she's the type of person who makes you want to be better in every facet of life. The ironic part of her birthday is that she is the gift to those of us who have come to know and love her. Happy birthday to the world's most beautiful, sincere, chic, brainy, hilarious, writerly and loving person I know.

Love you, Martina!
Marissa

  5. Oh, my gosh, Marissa, you are SO beyond kind to me. What can I even say to that? Except THANK YOU. And thank goodness for this. I'll have re-read it to make myself smile every time looking in the mirror makes me want to cringe. :) I am seriously the luckiest person on the planet to have a friend and blog-partner like you!

    Natalie, Jemi, Sherri and Anna, thank you all! It has been my pleasure and privlege to get to know you all through!

    Shelley, and the workshop has been my pleasure too. I have truly enjoyed reading your story and watching its transformation. Can't wait for the next round!
