Dear Alex,

Happy birthday! We love you to pieces! You make us laugh, give pitch-perfect advice, and cook up the most delicious pasta Bolognese (with capers!). You’re hilarious to gossip with and such a joy to confide in. It’s awesome that every TV show you watch includes the words “Mega Disaster” or “Haunted History,” and I know that you secretly want to shave your beard sometimes but I love that you never do (thank you).

We feel so lucky to be your family.

Joanna + Toby
P.S. See you tonight!
