Are you kidding, Heidi? You know you totally sing like a rockstar!!!

Reading this made me miss you. I especially loved your truth about watching someone eat what you made -- it's the best feeling. Unless it's something that turned out bad and kind of gross.

Love you,

PS: I'm praying for you. Just because.

Ahhh Heidi...

I know I love you!
I know that I wish you still lived next door so that you would share #23 with me.
I know that #24 reminds me that we're kindred spirits and reminds me that it's Happy Hour right now so I'll keep this short.
I know that #33 is true.
