One of my good friends, Nikki, turned 50 last weekend and I was invited to the fabulous bash. Nikki is a graphic artist and outside of work a super creative artist whose always making great gifts for people’s bdays.
While I also landed a creative gene, I got the short end of the stick and can only create words…and I’m always super jealous I don’t have the ability to create actual things for people. But this time around I figured maybe I’d give it a go and create something for her…even if it was just a bunch of words.
Then I had the great idea these words would be better spoken and some how convinced myself to read the words out loud to a house full of people. I also commissioned another creative friend to organize the words on paper for me.
She asked me to post what I read…so along with an image of what my friend put together…here are 50 things I love about Nikki:
She is creative
A lady with an attitude
& a purveyor of some pretty bad ass baked goods.
She is a doting daughter,
& devoted sister.
A genuine listener,
a fellow connoisseur of adult beverages…specifically vodka
& has a booming personality.
Is a movie maven
a music enthusiast
a hippy at heart.
She has an enormously kind heart
& is a shoulder to cry on.
She is one mean mama on the dance floor.
Is self made,
& a loyal friend.
But…one of the worst spellers I have EVER met
& ends most sentences with a question mark.
She is Howard’s hag,
a creator of some amazingly, magnificent treasures,
one foxy lady
& an accessory whore.
She is beautiful on the inside & out,
a food fanatic,
a lusty wench
& vertically challenged.
Will always, ALWAYS tell you what she thinks,
throws legendary Halloween parties
& a savior of small animals…just ask Willy.
She is compassionate,
a dirty girl,
a partaker of trouble,
a love maker
& a vixen.
Handles loss & change graciously
& rolls with the punches, no matter how hard they hit.
She is a punk rocker,
knows how to properly fly her freak flag,
is a sassy lady
& is inappropriate…in the best way possible.
She is fantastically funny,
cusses like a sailor,
displays a lust for life
and is hands down the owner of the world’s most bodacious ta tas.
