You know this picture well, my love. It was taken twenty years ago, in Costa Rica. It’s always been my favorite of the two of us. It was before we moved to Davis (in fact we bought our home here a week after we returned), before your sister was born, before your horses, before you went to UBC in Canada, before Brendan.
I have loved you for 24 years. You are an incredible, inspiring, courageous, curious, kind, kick ass woman. Happy Birthday.
