As you might know, it is Reese’s birthday this coming Thursday (22nd), so I thought it would be nice to do something special to celebrate it this year. So I thought, and came up with an idea: over the next 5 days I will be putting together 5 special posts celebrating five of the reasons why we love Reese! The posts will be in no particular order, after all, Reese is so dynamic it’s hard to pinpoint the reason we love her most Just a collection of five of the things we think make her extra special.
You are more than welcome to post a comment on any of the entries and share with us why you love Reese, tell us your five reasons for adoring her, or telling us what you think about our reasons. Just type in your comment, hit Submit, and I will approve it asap.
Remember to check back daily for this special feature, as we mark Miss Reese’s 36th birthday week.
