This is Sinny.

{Ocean Beach, San Francisco, Easter 2009}

Deep in my heart, I believe Sinny's Birthday is in May.*
Unfortunately, it is not. It is in March.


Anyway, without further ado, I love Sinny for lots of reasons. Like:
1. Sinny is the warmest, most genuine person you will ever meet. I don't think she has ever met a person she doesn't like, and she makes friends faster than you would believe, in any situation.
2. Sinny gives the world's best hugs. One of her hugs will make even the worst day better.
3. Do you have an adventure you've been dying to go on? Tell Sinny about it, and she will get as excited about it as you are, and then figure out how to make it happen. Last year's Fourth of July camping trip? All Sinny. Same goes for Bourbon and Branch outings, apple picking and countless other adventures.
4. Sinny's passion for food is rivaled only by her passion for helping people. This girl is an amazing cook. Seriously amazing.
5. Sinny is in med school right now, and when she gets out, she is going to be the kind of doctor everybody hopes to have. The kind who treats every patient with such care and genuine love, they are just bound to get better.
6. Sinny was my SF BFF. She was the one who picked me up at the airport when I moved to San Francisco, the one who gave me a place to stay while I was homeless, the one who listened to me cry when I felt like this. I can honestly say that knowing Sinny was there to catch me was what made it possible for me to up and move across the country last year. I will always be grateful for that, and I hope she knows I'd do the same for her in a heartbeat.

Happy Happy (belated), Sinny!
I'm so glad you were born.

*Seriously, when facebook told me her birthday was last week, I made a mental note to tell her that facebook had her birthday wrong.


  1. Happy Birthday Sinny!! She sounds like a great friend :)

  2. Awwww, now I want a Sinny hug!!! (Cus they are the best in the ENTIRE world.) Actually, to be totally truthful, need not just a Sinny hug, but a Sinny. Can I come back to LA?

  3. So sweet! You always make me miss SF with your little stories. Sounds like a pretty fantastic friend. Happy Birthday Sinny! XO

  4. Is Sinny lying in the water in those pictures? That is so Sinny.
    Now I want Sinny to come cook for me. Neither of you should ever have left SF.

  5. She sounds like a lovely're lucky to have her. But you know that! Happy birthday Sinny :)

  6. Happy Birthday, Sinny. And thank you -- it was easier to cope with having my baby girl on the other side of the country knowing that she had such a good friend on whom she could depend. Mi casa es su casa. Abbie's Mom.
