From all of us in the icy, snowy midwest, to you in the chilly foothills of the Himalayas, happy happy birthday dearest Marika! You not only push yourself, but you inspire all those around you to be our best selves, always pushing forward, with great spirit, adventure, tenacity, and inspiration.
Whether you are sailing and fishing off the Vineyard, skiing the mountains of Colorado, doing research in Jordan, climbing Pikes Peak, or working with kids in Nicaragua,
There is no greater gift, than my life with you, my wonderful daughter, Marika.
Happy happy birthday! Can't wait to see you soon!
Love to the moon and back, infinity!
