Happy Birthday, Tiarra!

Today is Tiarra’s birthday and while we couldn’t be together in person, I extended my wishes over Instagram. We’ve been friends for almost 13 years and today I am celebrating our friendship.


The 2nd photo of her opening her gift is from last year. It’s hard to believe that a year ago, on Monday 13 May 2019, we were discussing my decision to get my first tattoo. She reassured me and it was fun just chatting. A year later, I have two tattoos! Wraith and my affirmation.

We both love the Golden Girls. Stay golden, Tiarra, and happy 31st! Here’s to many more!

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie, and happy birthday to your friend Tiarra!

    This post is a sweet tribute to your friend of almost 13 years. That’s an impressive length of time to keep someone in your orbit. Yessum, it is hard to believe that only a year ago you were ink free and discussing with Tiarra your plans to get your first tat. It was nice of her to offer reassurance. Mrs. Shady loves to watch The Golden Girls, too. It’s nice that you and Tiarra like the same show.

    Once again happy birthday to Tiarra and good night to you, dear friend JM!


  2. It is good to celebrate friendship. Strangely, COVID-19 has inspired efforts to reach out to old friends more than I have in years. Thank goodness for Zoom.

    Life has a funny way.
