Happy Birthday, BK!

Today is my dear sister/friend BK's birthday.

(I'd post a picture, but I can't seem to find one electronically. Will have to keep searching. There's got to be one somewhere. Hmmmm....)

BK and I have been friends for several years now. Through the years, we have supported one another through thick and thin--relationship issues, relocations, job changes and problems, hurricanes. No matter what we're there for each other, even if the only thing we can do is lend a shoulder to cry on.

A lot of people have met their mates online, I found my sister. We joke about how we wish we could trade our biological sisters because the man upstairs definitely put our families together wrong. We really believe our sisters would be better off together (and we'd be better off w/out them! *wink*)

We met thanks to a fundraising project endorsed by Keith Urban. We worked together through email with others to put together the first Keith Urban Fans calendar, with all proceeds going to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The first calendar was a fantastic success and the tradition continues to this day, although BK and I are no longer involved with the process. But that first calendar opened up the doorway to our friendship and I am thankful to Keith for the friends he has brought me--although probably rather unknowingly on his part! (if you are interested in purchasing the latest calendar, go to www.

I raise a toast to you, BK, Happy Birthday and thanks for being my friend. I owe you a couple of meals (and more!) when you come up here to help me move!
