I am so glad to see that others have Air Supply and Chicago on their playlist. I, perhaps somewhat sadly, also happen to include Firehouse and Roxette. :)

Emilini! (At least I think this is you.)

1. You are great at finding bargains. This is truly an awesome skill. I loved seeing what new toys would be at your house.

2. You are such a creative mom. You do fun things with your kids and decorate for the holidays so cute. I always looked forward to seeing what you contributed to the FHE packets!

3. You are a great friend. I always felt like I could talk to you about anything and it was so fun being with you. I miss you!!

One more Emily thing as promised: You are very balanced. You seem to put the important things first, but yet you still manage to be involved in a lot of activities. I think this is a great skill!
