It's hard living miles and miles from this girl, especially on her birthday.

Vanessa means the world to me. She's been my buddy for almost 10 years now. We were neighbors in Nashville and we have dreamed the wildest ideas together since that day we met. 
I've never had a friend pray prayers over my life as she has prayed. I'm one lucky girl, I know!!

We've endured a move that sent Vanessa to Dallas and me to Montana. Even those miles couldn't come between us......& this is what I love most about our friendship. We are in it to win it. We don't give up. 

I've seen Vanessa as a record label executive....& now as a homeschooling mom. Her heart for people and her family inspires me. Her passion to fulfill what God has created her to be is beautiful to see. 

VANESSA, I love you with all my heart. You inspire me in so many ways. Thank you for being a constant friend in my life. Thank you for always being encouraging and interested in our lives. 
Thank you for allowing me into your life. It's a great honor. 

I'm praying that this new year is filled with more joy • more peace •more gratitude • more grace • more love • and more of Jesus.....as you run your race. 

I love you. I treasure our friendship. I honor you.....& I celebrate you today! Wish we were together, eating some of that chocolate bundt cake! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sister!
