Happy Birthday LOLA!!
Back in 2005 I went on this trip to Dallas to meet a whole group of single parents with whom I had met online and become friends with.

To this day, when I take count of how many great friends I have, more than half of that count is made up from the ladies (and gentleman) I met on that trip. These are people I hold near and very dear to my heart. And right up there on the top of that list is the phenomenal and amazing Lola.
She and I were practically attached at the hip on that trip and have been super close ever since even if we only see each other like every three years :)
On my first trip out of the country, she showed me how amazing her home city of Toronto is and certainly made me want to make the trip again and often. In fact, I think when all of my kids are gone and I'm alone and sad, I will be making several trips a year to Toronto just to hang out.
We talk on the phone frequently, especially when either of us is in some kind of boy-drama-turmoil situation (which is like every month, lol) and I love her like a sister.
So join me in wishing her a super happy birthday!
I love you girly! I don't know what I would do without you!

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
