Years and years ago, I became blessed by the friendship of one Brooke Mixson (now Kauffman).
Early on, we would spend our time jumping on her trampoline. Over the years, she's introduced me to coffee (I have the pictures), explained the game of football and corrected my earliest papers in college.
She got engaged 8 months after I did so we were able to share a month where we both planned weddings together, though we'd theoretically been planning since we met. We've survived braces, crushes, road trips and been there for each other for our various wedding stresses.
Happiest birthday, Brooke!
