Happy Birthday Lola!
Lola, you are ingrained in the very rhythm of my heart beat. You are a soul connection that surpasses the understanding of quantum physics. You are my sister, my friend, and my confident. You are one of the strongest women that I know. You are driven, incredible, silly and absolutely delightful. You are full bodied, soulful and so thoughtfully considerate that I strive to improve. I want to be a better woman because of you. I want to be a better friend because of you. You inspire me. You encourage me. You give me strength when I think I’m going insane. You help me find clarity, focus and compassion. You teach me. You understand me. You are ever kind to me.
You are so incredibly important to me. I am so grateful that our paths crossed. You have changed the trajectory of my life. You are one of the best women that I know. I celebrate you, dear love. I wish everything for you. I don’t ever want you to settle or compromise your passion or your heart. I wish every fulfilling desire that you have to come to fruition. I know your driven nature will create a life of abundance and it is incredible to watch this unfold. You are so amazing!
Lola, you are ingrained in the very rhythm of my heart beat. I absolutely love and adore you. Happy Birthday Lola.

I am so grateful for you. It is a pleasure to know you. I absolutely love having you in my life and I love our rich history and the hope of our wonderful future. Thank you for being my friend. I can not wait to see you soon! We have a billion things to talk about. May your every wish, your every desire and your prayer come true. I want EVERYTHING for you. I speak love and abundance into every part of your life. I LOVE YOU.
Really, there isnâ€™t a known language that could express how much she means to me, how big of an impact she has had on my life and how must I love her! Sheâ€™s like a sister to me. Which by proxy means that her other sisters are my sisters too. Which is good because they are just as cool as her.
Lola wrote a letter on the first page and the last page. It was sort of her reflections on the history of us from when we first met in April of 2001, to the milestones in our friendships from our first fight that led to YEARS of silence, to everything. Some of the things she wrote, I just didnâ€™t even expect to read. I didnâ€™t realize sheâ€™d remembered or even knew. LOLA, I LOVE YOU!
Â Itâ€™s like every time I unzip my soul and show you another part of me, you arenâ€™t shocked, scared or upset. You just keep looking at me and choosing to stay in my life and that is beyond anything in this world.Â The story of our life in love will go down in history. But before it reaches the books, I have you to thank for teaching me how to grow the hell up, get over myself and extend my heart to another.
There is a place in my heart and in my soul that holds nothing but just the thought of you. There is more to us than what Iâ€™ve haphazardly written here. And the weight isnâ€™t always in pain. There is, after all, that year of clubbing and dancing the night away. And endless nights eating Asian cuisine. There is no space that could ever contain the full length, depth and width of our story. This will just have to serve as the preface. I am so grateful for you. Thank God you are here today!
