Early birthday gift from Kate, since she’ll be on tour for my birthday. Two things that make me all mushy: 1. Gifts from people that symbolize our friendship or incorporate inside jokes/meaningful things. It shows they pay attention to me and took time to think of a gift that is special. 2. Sweet words.

This birthday, I got both. I am a blessed, blessed girl. I love my friends. I don’t think I’ve taken this vest off since I got it!

(P.s. I’m known as Youngblood around here. Hence the writing on the back)
