Happy birthday Jenna!

Happy birthday to my fave just-the-right-amount-of-adventure buddy! Thank you for being such a wonderful part of my life. I’m so grateful for you. You are incredibly beautiful in so many different ways. Thank you for loving me even though I’m not very philosophical (except for my color theory) and for bringing such joy to my family. I hope you have a wonderful day. I love you!
