“29” years ago today, the most important person in my life was born. She is amazing! She can be child-like but also the most mature, competent and innovative person I know. She is a down-to-earth country girl but also a world traveler and thinks globally. She sees the best in people and acts accordingly. She has a voracious appetite for learning and she doesn’t limit herself to any particular area. She is the happiest person I know and an inspiration to everyone who has the privilege to know her. Happy Birthday, my love.
