One of the highlights of 2011 for me was meeting Leslie McClure. We met at Fitbloggin’ in Baltimore, and since then we’ve shared many fun times coast to coast. Soon we’ll be sharing more fun times together, and I can’t wait. (Is it September yet??)
She’s an incredible publicist, but she’s much more than that. She’s an incredible friend. She believes in me, stands by me and doesn’t hesitate to go to bat for me when she thinks someone is out of line. (Seriously, I’ve witnessed it. She’s amazing.) She sees the best in me and respectfully presses me when I need it, but she’s always kind.
Meeting Leslie has been a blessing from day one, and if you’re lucky enough to know her personally, then you know exactly what I mean. She loves people with her whole heart, and she does her best to showcase the best in others while standing in the wings to make them shine.
Someone once said that friends are the people who know all about you and love you anyway, and Leslie has shown herself to be a true friend during happy times and hard times. I consider myself lucky to know her and to call her a friend.
She beautiful inside and out, and she possesses a timeless sense of style. (She would totally roll her eyes if she read this, but it’s true.) She rarely gets the credit she deserves so today I hope you’ll join me in celebrating her.
Happy birthday, Leslie! I wish you every happiness, and I can’t wait to spend time with you over the next couple of months! xoxoxo
