Today is a very special day! It’s bitter-sweet but Emma would have been so very excited today!
Today is Emma’s best friend’s birthday. Lexi is 19 today.
I remember when Emma went to Lexi’s 16th birthday party. She was so excited and wanted to choose the perfect gift for her friend. I remember she gave Lexi a hot pink iPod nano and an iTunes gift card for music.
It was a sleepover party and I remember after I picked her up she was telling me all about it on the drive home.
“They’re AWESOME!, they’re just like us, totally crazy in a good way!”
Emma loved Lexi’s family immediately as much as she loved her friend.
So today, even though Emma isn’t here to help her celebrate this special day, we celebrate Lexi and the beautiful friendship she and Emma had!
Happy Birthday sweetheart, you will always be an important part of our lives.
