What Athena Hates Most

More than the mailman & squirrel & opposums, put together and multiplied by 1,000. Have you ever heard of dog that didn't like water??? So weird. But, it was time, her smell was too much to handle, and we got through it. Me, with claw marks and soaking wet... her, shaking and smelling like Baby Magic. I call that someday this will not be my chore, kind of like taking out the garbage, because really, it's not fun for me either.

One of My Very Favorite People

Today is this girl's birthday. And you should know that she is one of my very, very favorite people. In fact, you should be very sad if you don't know her because she really is that great. We met through someone else, and in an unlikely way, and wouldn't have guessed we'd end up so close. Like, be-in-my-wedding-someday close (with an appropriate bridesmaid dress, of course ;)). I'm thankful her family ended up in Des Moines -- even for a short period of time.

She's creative, funny, an amazing cook, disciplined, thoughtful, a great mother, and just an all around good person and friend.

So, Happy Birthday, Megan. The world is a better place because you're in it! Hope your day is as special as you are. XO-Nikki
