¡Feliz cumpleaños, Marie!

Today (or technically for me tomorrow) is the day that 27 years ago, my very best friend in the whole world, Marie Adkinson, was born. I know Marie would never be one to brag about herself because she is the most humble human I’ve ever met, so I’m going to take this time to brag on my bestie on her birthday. First things first, it’s important that you all know that one of the main reasons I am going to be a PCV is because of her. She has been one of my driving and encouraging forces throughout this entire process for me. Marie is actually a PCV herself in Armenia! She is currently over there living her lifelong dream and doing an amazing job. She has so much love for the country, her host families, her new friends, her students and her job as an English Teacher! Because of her incredibly precious and humble personality, she doesn’t realize that how many lives she has positively impacted over her 27 years of life. Marie is a person who (with ease) wakes up each and every day and shows love, kindness, positivity to every person she encounters. Her personality is one that is contagious. She is the most loving, most accepting, most diverse human I know and I am honored to have such a beautiful person in my life and ever more blessed to call her my best friend. This girl has survived the worst of storms and chose to stay as positive as possible regardless. She is one of the strongest persons I know. I truly admire her and I strive everyday to amount to half of the human she is. Armenia is so lucky to have such an incredible soul working with them. But Marie is lucky too. She has found a place in this world that she adores wholeheartedly and probably won’t ever want to leave. That’s the beauty of travel 🙂 We make homes in many places and it always hurts to leave. Anyways, Marie, I wish you the very happiest of birthdays. I love you dearly. I wish I was there with you to buy you a drink (no alcohol of course), and help you celebrate your day. But for now, a virtual birthday celebration will have to do 🙂 Take care bestie! I love you muchísimo! ❤️❤️❤️🎁🎁🎁🎂🎂🎂
