Happy birthday to Stephanie Smith

in Uncategorized by

One of the many perks of being the future Mrs. @SaintPetersBlog is the opportunity to hijack the blog from time-to-time to write about what’s really important.

What’s really important today is the celebration of one of the best people I know, Miss Stephanie Smith, a woman who has been as much a mentor to me as she has been a wonderful friend.

I am sure if Mr. @SaintPetersBlog was writing this post, he would tell you about all of her important career and political accomplishments and how much she is loved and respected in Florida’s capital and beyond, but I know Stephanie as a hand to be held and a shoulder to cry on — as well as being my partner-in-crime at Britney Spears’ concerts.

Of course, what I am most proud of about Stephanie has nothing to do with careers or politics, it is her devotion to her incredible son, T.J.

Both Peter and I owe some part of us coming together to Stephanie and for that we are also very grateful.
