What To Write In A Birthday Card For Her

She’s a pretty amazing woman/lady/girl in your life. Maybe she’s your mom, wife, daughter, cousin, girlfriend, yoga instructor, hairdresser, etc., etc. You get the point. She’s anyone who’s touched your life—and probably even your heart—in an extra-special way.
