And happy birthday, Karen!
I met Karen a couple of summers ago through a mutual friend, during a boozy Like Water for Chocolate dinner at Sundown Café (before it became a taqueria). We became instant buds, and have spent the last two years sharing movies and margaritas, concerts and confidences, laughter and loss. We get each other. Karen brings a lot of joy to my life.
And today’s her birthday. Hoist one tonight in honor of Karen’s birth.
How great is this woman? Check out this photo from last year’s birthday celebration (Karen’s the cutie with glasses and the curious foot):
