Happy Birthday Mags





















MAGS!...yes I'm yelling it

My big sister Maggie turns 30 today. Sorry Mags, I had to post the picture of you sleeping because it is classic Maggie. The other picture, she actually told me she looked old in it. Are you kidding me, she looks old, only if her actual age was 10...sheesh! This post is for her, so you all don't have to read it unless you want to get all misty. Today more than ever over the past 7 years that we have lived apart I wish I was with you. I miss you so much. Wouldn't it be great if we could talk all night tonight and eat lots of chocolate cake and favorite soup. I was telling Kenyon that you and I weren't the best of friends in high school, not really enemies, just a little indifferent. But you are a "besty" as Ang would put it. You know and understand me better than any girlfriend I've had. You are an artist. You can create something amazing from nothing. Push pins...need I say more, I love them! You are a giver... Satch and Em would never have survived (en utero) had you not fixed my dinner 90% of the time. Seriously I think of all the times you fed us and feel like a real bum, but I'm so grateful. You are hilarious...I check your blog every day, atleast once a day, and yours is the only blog I can say that about. And here is the compliment of all compliments. I love talking on the phone with you and get excited when I see you calling me. Thanks. You are beautiful. I have always been jealous of your pantene commercial-esque hair, your puppy dog eyes, and your flawless skin. You are a really good person....your like grandma boyle....can't think of a flaw. You are such a good example to me, and always have been. Remember when you lied to Nathan Halls, about having to give a talk on Sunday so he would take you home from a heinous date....then called him up after you got home and apologized and told him that you had lied. In that moment I thought you were a little bit geeky...to be honest....but I have never forgotten that you did that, and how horrified you must have been. And it left a big impression on me. You are amazing. I love you Mags. You are the best. Happy Birthday...see you in Cali in the spring...I promise!

k tris, that was poetic. You aren't much for words, but that even put a tear in my eye and I would have to agree with your thoughts on Mags. She truly is gem......although, I'd have to say I feel that way about all you Boyle's, love you guys and Happy Birthday Mags....

Happy Birthday, Mags! I'm so glad Trisdan posted this. You guys have always been my "poster sisters." I hope my girls can be good friends like this, especially since I've got a "redskin" and a "paleface."

Ahhh.. favorite soup...I will forever think of you and your family when I hear the term "favorite soup." Nice tribute to Mags. It has been at least 10 years since I have seen her. Where does the time go? I miss you guys. :)
