It's the beautiful SABRINA'S BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!

 I don't know if you know this, but somehow we have managed to make each other birthday videos every single year. You can see them herehere, and here. This year I had something silly in mind to do with Drew, BUT we never found ourselves at home long enough to make one together due to our hectic schedules lately. SO, in order to keep the tradition going, I ended up having to make one alone (with my fur-spike-family). I was pressed for time and had to put this together reallllly fast. It's the thought that counts right? :)

You amaze me every single day at how much you love life, your optimism inspires me, you are the most beautiful girl in the world, and I am forever thankful we are friends. I can't wait for next year because we will be in the SAME TOWN celebrating your birthday together. How awesome is that!? :) Have an incredible, blessed, joyful, and amazing day my friend. You deserve it.

Today is also my beautiful friend Brittany's Birthday. She's turning 30 and sharing the beautiful story of the early birth of her son, Shea, on her blog today. It will leave you in tears, but it's something that has touched my heart and I am not even a mother yet. I'm so thankful to have met this wonderful lady this past year. Her friendship has already brought so much meaning and love to my life. She's one of those people that are just warm, caring, and make you feel loved. If you could keep her and her husband in your prayers, I know they both would appreciate it. She's an amazing, amazing woman and mother. Her story and strength are something you should read. I love you Brit!


  1. I hope she had an awesome birthday! And can I just say, I love how you have no shame about posting videos of yourself, regardless if some people may consider it 'embarrassing' or 'stupid'. I really admire that! Happy Tuesday!

  2. Your so creative.. How do you make these videos!

  3. You have my boyfriend begging or a hedgehog every time I show him one of your videos ;)

  4. You make me so incredibly happy. I cannot wait to be your neighbor. For REAL. I'm going to be knocking down your door everyday...

    Thank you so much for being my friends. You have my heart. I just love you Shay! How did I get so lucky?? you are one in a BILLION.

    hearts exploding.
