On this day many moons ago, my dear friend Claire was born. We practically grew up together from the moment she moved to Starkville and began her first days in Mrs. Sassafras's class. We've spent so much time together over the years that it's hard to recall a hilarious memory of which she was not a part. Here are a few...

I miss you more than Junior Mints!

I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT!!! Seriously, I think I teared up a little. That was so sweet, and I LOVED the memories. I was in Sam's the other day, and checked the isle with the batman figurines...just in case.

C could also be for Clifford.

Also, 'p' could be for pneudarin (aka a jellyfish) which Claire cooked on the grill @ the beach.
