Happy Birthday, Hali!

Hali is one of the deployed soldiers in Kuwait that I send care packages to several times per month.  We are now Facebook friends, so I got a notification that her birthday is TODAY - Happy Birthday, Hali!  It takes about 2 weeks for mail to arrive overseas to our deployed troops so she won't get it on time, but she'll love it.  A while back I asked about specials requests to send in the care packages for her unit.  Because they are based out of Washington, home of Starbucks coffee, they asked me to keep them well supplied in Starbucks ground coffee.  She said it runs through their veins so I send anywhere from 1-4 bags of ground coffee in each box.

So, Hali, this card is made especially for you - my coffee-drinking, Craisin-eating friend in Kuwait!
