We all knew Erica had something up her sleeve because she wanted each of us to bring her the shirt that we were going to run the race in. As we waited for our food, she made the big reveal. She made a little presentation about how much we meant to her and she had thought of a word that she felt represented us and why she loved us. She had then printed that word out (each with a beautifully appropriate font) and ironed it on our shirt. She took the time for each person and explained why she had chosen that descriptive word and how much cared for them before giving them their shirt. She gave me the word bodacious. :) She then had "these ladies color my world" on her shirt. It was beautiful and emotional. Many of us were tearing up. It was a really thoughtful and generous thing to do. Erica turned her birthday into a celebration of her friends.
