Happy Birthday My Dear Friend! A Letter To My Bestie

 

Happy Birthday my dear friend! That’s right – It’s my best friend’s birthday today and I wanted to do something special for her. Audrey and I don’t live near one another. So, I can’t really visit her and take her out to lunch.

Happy Birthday my dear friend

I can’t pop over to her house with her favorite coffee in my hand. I wish it were that simple, but life placed us in different states and so we have to deal with things as they are.

My best friend’s birthday is a big deal regardless, right? So, I thought this post would be a small way for me to let her know that she means the world to me and then some.  There are so many reasons why I love my best friend. I think it’s time I tell her why!

Happy Birthday to My Best Friend

Although many people think we are very much alike, that couldn’t be further from the truth. We are total opposites. She is Kardashian and I am zombie apocalypse.

She is “rainbows and unicorns” and I am “that sweet little grandma on the corner is actually a trained assassin in disguise”. Like I said – ying and yang. 

But I think that’s what makes the two of us work. Because you know what they say – opposites attract. So, this post is truly a letter to my best friend – happy birthday my dear friend.

But none of that matters because when you have two women who are passionate about the same things and who love to laugh –  it makes for the perfect partnership.

Audrey is truly a blessing. A gift. She is the best friend that any girl could hope for and I PRAY that she thinks the same about me. LOL

From Permission to Hustle to opening up to one another about the struggles of motherhood to secretly opening up about our marriages – this girl is my confidant.

As an only child, you need another woman to open up to and Audrey is IT for me. Audrey has a wonderful sister and she also has several amazing sisters-in-law. She is surrounded by incredible women. I am lucky enough to fit into her fold.

I hope she is spending the day drowning in Dunkin’ Donuts coffee. I hope her face is covered in powdery sugar from overindulging in munchkins. I hope her arms are discolored from an awful spray tan.

I hope she is deeply submerged into a raunchy romance novel. I hope her husband makes his famous lasagna. I hope her kids make their beds. Ahhh… who am I kidding? That last one is too much to ask for anyone!

I hope this year gave Audrey everything she hoped for. When I turned 41, I learned quite a few things. Yes, she’s younger than me. Whatevs.

I hope she rests and enjoys the sunshine. I hope they make it to the beach after dinner so she can feel the sand between her toes and I hope those toes have a fresh pedicure.

But most of all, I hope she finds joy today – all day. I hope she laughs and feels the lightness and sees all that God gave her in her life. Because Audrey has a beautiful life.

We all get thrown some curveballs. I won’t sit here and pretend it’s all perfect, but it certainly is beautiful. And it is all her own.

So, Happy Birthday my dear friend! Happy birthday, Audrey! I love you even though you won’t sit with me at the roulette table whenever we go away.  Even though you make me watch the stupidest shows when we stay overnight together in a hotel room. Even though you order food for breakfast and then never eat it.

I love you and am so thankful for your friendship. I am a better person because of it and I truly do believe that.

How do you say happy birthday to your best friend?

There are so many different ways for you to say happy birthday to your best friend. It could be a simple card, a night out on the town, a small token, a memory book! You know what matters most to your BFF – and money is not involved in that equation.

I think out of all the things we can do for one another – TIME SPENT TOGETHER is what we truly want.

When signing your card, there are a few different ways you can close out your greeting. Here are some options:

What should I write in my best friend’s birthday on Instagram?

Instagram best friend birthday wishes are HUGE nowadays! In fact, I love to see when friends share silly pictures of one another on their big day. I would keep your message personal and from the heart. You don’t have to worry about too many catchy sayings or quotes. This is a meaningful post that should feel more like a dedication.

Your best friend’s birthday instagram shout out should have a few personal references that maybe only the two of you will understand. But overall, if it is on your public feed, it should have a general feeling of celebration.

What do you say in a birthday text?

I LOVE sending birthday text messages and usually pull out all the stops! Look for old photos – even the bad ones – and send a bunch to your BFF! Wish her a day filled of A,B, and C — those would be her absolute favorite things.
