Happy birthday, Dottie

The world got much more awesome on the day Dot was born. And so did my life when we met some 25 years later!


Cheers to a friend who is kind but assertive; smart and thoughtful, but never afraid to be goofy; and a true artistic talent who lets us see the world through her eyes in her photos.


Speaking of her ability to master new things—did I mention that her latest enthusiasm is learning Serbian? A skill that was much appreciated by the Balkan community at large as well as her travel companion. :)


So, Живели, Dottie! Can’t wait to raise a glass with you in person in a couple of weeks.

    Happy birthday, Dottie! If you were here, I’d be buying you a dram (after consulting your whiskey guidebook of course).

    Happy B-day Dottie.

    Two great birthday themed sayings by Satchel Paige:
    “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are”?
    “Age is a case of mind over matter – if you don’t mind, it don’t matter”.
    And how cool is it to have a pal like Trisha who remembers things like your birthday?
    Lucky you are indeed,
