happy birthday, tara! it's a big one.
a perfect reason to celebrate the you we all know and love.
you have an optimistic spirit that is infectious. truly.
you are genuinely grateful for everyone and everything. and you are genuine about everything.
you set your goals really high. you work really hard. you accomplish them with the biggest smile upon your face.
you're super passionate about the people, places & music in your life. and trampled by turtles.
you do that thing with your tongue whenever you have your picture taken. it makes me smile every time.
you say a lot of words. they're funny and supportive and positive and loving and rambling.
sometimes you are buddy the elf. we love that about you.
you share yourself tirelessly. and we're so grateful.
love you, friend. happy 40th.
