it’s liz’s birthday

Some of you may know, Liz (if you don’t… you should!) from that weekend in Foley Beach or that time we assembled 100s of invitations; yea, she’s pretty awesome. I met Liz in Savannah (according to the Book of Face, that would be December 2010) and she made my time in Savannah incredible. She’s not only beautiful, but a great friend, the best hostess, hilarious, darn good cook, and phenomenal generally. And… it just so happens today is Liz’s birthday! A special thank you to Kelly Solomon for this super sweet lady, without her my life wouldn’t be the same.

To celebrate, I’m sharing a few of my favorite things about Liz and reasons I love her. (Brace yourself, Liz and get prepared to laugh!) Please note: these are in no particular order, other than the order they came to mind.

  • memorable St. Patrick’s Days, from early mornings to loosing iPhones to barging into old lady’s apartments, the list could go on
  • walks with Lola
  • Sunday afternoons at Social
  • spontaneous, midnight Haunted Hearst Tour
  • hours of the Casey Anthony Trial and seriously contemplating driving to Flordia to watch it live
  • many, many networking socials (even in the rain!)
  • the weekend we met Lanier, aka Taylor Swift
  • the awesome shower you (& others) hosted for me
  • incredibly scary, possibly life-threatening cab rides
  • numerous beach days on Tybee
  • late night karaoke
  • laughing, talking/yelling, and crying on your couch
  • Julie demonstrating how she’d be doing laundry in Atlanta
  • the Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia
  • sushi dinners
  • game nights
  • our last dinner at the Rocks on the Roof, where we may have both cried
  • the weekend Bethany and BR visited
  • teaching me how to make Nini’s… forever grateful
  • meeting that random, Disney star
  • all the wonderful dinner parties you hosted
  • the hours of Kevin Hart comedy
  • helping me pack by throwing everything in the box with hangers & labeling the boxes, “what were you thinking?” and “clothes from high school”
  • my last week in Savannah, you helped me survive and we managed to eat at all of my favorite spots = success
  • tying 100+ pieces of twine around each of my wedding invitations, only a true, really awesome friend would do that
  • teaching me how to cook broccoli the Schorr way – which is now a Heape home favorite
  • our night out on the town with Lindsay
  • when my bags were packed, the car loaded, & I had no where to go on my last day in town… you made it A.O.K. as we lounged on the beach, watched Bobby fish, & reminisced on all the good times

we share 10 common interests


I miss you, Liz! You and your mister. I hope your special day is at least half as awesome as you are! Please celebrate your birthday like it’s 2 AM, we’re at Wild Wings, and Bobby doesn’t know we just ordered a round of jager bombs – because that would never happen!

I love you, friend. Happy Birthday, Liz!
