Well, well, well. Today is Blair Margaret Murphy’s Birthday. She is 22 years old. Seems just like yesterday, it was her 14th birthday and she was falling down the steps at the Levee in her chunky heals and short flares. Sadly, time has moved very fast and another year has past where I am not celebrating with her. Everyone needs a Mormon to celebrate with them on their birthday, don’t you think?
Some of the best times of my life have been with Blair.
Spring Break ’06: We were on an island in Florida. Turned out that the only boys on the island were retired old men or middle school/elementary kids. I didn’t have a problem with either of them (joking) and so I tried to get Blair to go hang out with the middle schoolers when she was deathly ill from the sun.
Spring Break ’07: Cocoa Beach. Need I say more?
Music videos and our stand up comedy that was suspiciously destroyed/lost.
Working at Snowie together.
The night before my wedding.
My 6th grade birthday party when Blair yelled at Rachel for jumping on the trampoline too long.
Walks up to Convenient for ice-cream.
I could go on and on. But the best part about Blair is that we can go for months without seeing each other and then when we finally do get to meet up, it’s like no time had gone by. She’s been a great friend since 4th grade and I hope she had a great birthday and has an amazing new year. Blair is starting med school this year, so it’s going to be a big one!
Love you lots!
