Today is a big day for our favorite little Icelandic magazine mogul, Kolbrun Kolbeinsdottir! You may know her simply as Kolla, lover of Coca-Cola, crusher of dreams, swimmer, runner, cyclist, feared giver of unsolicited advice—or just friend. However you know her, some number of years ago at this exact moment (8 a.m. GMT), at the Akureyri, Iceland hospital, Kolbeinn Sigurbjornsson and Helga Jónsdóttir brought a new daughter into the world. (Thanks for that, you two ;))
This has been quite the year for our Kolla, so if you see her, be sure to give her a big hug and smoochy wet birthday kiss. I hear she loves both of those, along with whatever kind of physical affection you can come up with.
“Fly free and happy beyond birthdays and across forever, and we’ll meet now and then when we wish, in the midst of the one celebration that never can end.” — Richard Bach
