Joyeux Anniversaire!

Please raise your cocktails, cupcakes & Shirley Temples for my good friend, Karrie!! 

Some 29 (meh, give or take a few) years ago today, good ‘ol Tina did us all a solid, and brought this little gem into the world.

Karrie is the friend who has inspired my (and many, many other peoples’) most hilarious, gut-busting fits of double-over laughter…

…the friend who you can always count on to dish out poignant, wise-beyond-her-years advice, and who’s never afraid to bust a few balls.

…the friend who gets exponentially more gorgeous and amazing with time, like the true skank she is.

(via the superbly talented ladies at Joie La La)

…and the girl who does the most dead-on impression of a sheep anyone has eh-ver seen.  Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Happy Birthday to one of the most sensational people I know!  Miss and love you!
