Yesterday was Brooke's 30th bday, so Julie and I got a little excited and drove down there with some party stuff. Julie made the most amazing paleo cake (because brooke eats paleo a lot of the time and just finished a cross fit paleo challenge). Not only was it so good, but it was so pretty!
I made 30 water bottles that we both put together things we love about brooke and then put it on the water bottle labels. (Allison have done this before with aly when she was doing cross fit) This way, she has 30 days of reminders of how incredible she is. And she is incredible. Brooke is one of the hardest working people we have ever met and one of the most encouraging. She is never without a smile and truly always making everyone around her feel amazing about themselves. She has blessed my life more than I can tell y'all and I am so thankful to still be close and know her the way I do. Our friend Mandi also stopped by and it was pretty much the most fun day reliving my old life (minus kids). I also made some shirts with knitting needles on them (in case you were worried they were swords) and wrapped her gift in fabric.
It was a quick trip, but it just helped remind me of the incredible people in my life and how blessed I am to have known them so well for so long and still get to stay close to them.
Brooke- I hope you have the best day. We all love you so much and are so thankful to have you in our lives!
