Have a little jump to MJ's blog and you will see that her birthday gift arrived safely, trudged back in two parts from Arizona... part of it in March and part of it last week. It was a risky venture hopping a plane with 24 Mrs. Field's cookies and a hungry husband, but I kept my carry-on safely stowed under my seat for the duration of the trip. I do love planning little treats for people.
MJ and I have been friends since we were five, and I used to refer to her as "my oldest" friend until she very specifically corrected me - she is "the friend I have had the longest" but not "the oldest", especially considering that I am in fact about six months older than she.
Regardless, Happy Birthday wishes to "the friend I have had the longest" in my life and whose constant presence in my world makes all days sweeter.
