1: Sonam, twenty-one, huh? If you think this is old then just wait until you turn 31 or even 51. Anyways, Happy 21st Birthday! You are a very special person to me and many other people. I'm so fortunate to have shared many laughs, good times, serious talks and silly fights with. I hope all of your dreams, hopes wishes and desires come true. Words might make me sound cheesey and we both know you already are a cheeseball but what I'm trying to get at is you are an amazing person that I am very thankful to have in my life. I know I can always count on you, rely on you to be there for me, make me smile if I'm down - or make me cry if I'm really down (just kidding). We've captured many great memories together and I look forward to many more years of this great friendship. I love you today and everyday. You are more than a person could ask for out of a friend, a sister and a psuedo-soulmate. Hehe. I don't ever worry about the woman you'll grow into because I'll be proud of you no matter what. You're smart, beautiful, funny, charming and most of all a great person to be around. I don't ever want you to forget that I'm here for you whenever you need (or want) me. Who knows where life will take us in our years to come but I'm never too far or too busy for you Lovlean Purewal
2: We are
4: Sonam, Wishing you all the happiness on your 21st birthday. You are the best daughter and sister. You hold a very special place in our hearts. We really appreciate all you do. We love you very very much, today and always. Love, Mom, Dad and Manraj
5: What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot | Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family. ~Anthony Brandt
6: You're... My Friend, my companion, through good times and bad my friend, my buddy, through happy and sad, beside me you stand, beside me you walk, you're there to listen, you're there to talk, with happiness, with smiles, with pain and tears, I know you'll be there, throughout the years!
7: Harsonam! We've officially known each other for 14 years and we have still remained best friends! That definitely proves how strong our friendship is and I am thankful everyday for it. Now, enough of the sappy stuff cus that's just not the way we roll...instead lets take a trip down memory lane :D Here are some of the top things that I remember from the past years. (PS these are how I remember things hehe) 1. You refusing to come to my birthday party in 2nd grade even though I gave you a personal invitation and begged you to come. 2. You telling me that you never pooped or peed in 3rd grade and getting mad at me if I disagreed. 3. Always stepping on the gum heart on the walkway to Mrs. Taylor and Mrs. Nishimoto's class at Jackson. 4. Passing notes on our Webster electronic dictionaries in 6th grade. 5. When that one Indian girls mom asked you to be her daughters friend in middle school. 6. Playing Mall Madness and Trouble at your house on your Pooh sheets. 7. You telling me that your dog had a period. 8. Building our paper mache globes late one night with our moms. 9. Waving to each other through the windows across De Neve. 10. You always attempting to crack jokes...and once in a while they really are funny! There are so many more memories but its hard to put 14 years on one page. I honestly have to say thanks for everything you have done for me. You always listen, try to cheer me up, and you put up with me when things are good and bad. I hope you have a great 21st birthday! I love you so much and even after we part ways this year, I know we will continue to remain as close as we are. I promise...I will Skype and text and call and visit you in Pharmacy school :D Your best friend forever and always, Monique Kaur Atwal

13: Friendship Continued | Friendship is the thread that ties our hearts together. | 21 candles finally are finally here. We must admit, we waited 21 years. So many obstacles, around tried to steer, passion for greatness; truly sincere! A bit more mature, mind fairly clearar. Path in the making; future carrer. Wisdom chooses an open ear, your charming smile, people adhere. Youthfully bold, conquer your fear. Never hesitate to help a friend shed a new tear. Your beatutiful actions, many revere, a trustiing shoulder, always hold near. Love always, All of Dosanjhs
14: SoNaM Hope you are having an AMAZING 21st birthday! I can’t believe that we are all getting super old. It seems like yesterday we were doing the Beowulf video for Gardner’s class or sitting in DA annoying the crap out of each other. Dang, the time has gone by so quickly since we left High School. I miss hearing all of your nerdy jokes and hearing you say “Hey Tony! I like the things you do. Hey Tony!” I wish we went to college together but I’m glad you went to UCLA and are achieving your dream of being a pharmacist! I know you will do great things in life! You have truly been a great friend to me over these past 7 years. Make sure to have a great 21st birthday, don’t get too drunk and remember to drink plenty of water! Hopefully you can come up to Davis sometime so we can all hang out! Love, Anthony
16: Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself. - Harvey Fierstein | 21 already! It seems like yesterday that you and Monique were in 2nd grade. I am so glad the two of you met and became so close over the years. It makes me so happy knowing that Monique will always have a great friend and a sister. As you move on in your life, always remember that you have a very special place in my heart. Love you lots and hope you accomplish everything in your life that you set out to do.

18: Harsonam! Happy Birthday! Your finally 21!! About time! You’re so old now! Now that your finally 21 do you know what that means?! Yes you can drink, BUT it also means your getting closer to being married! Aren’t you excited?! We all know that your going to be the first one out of all of us to get married whether you want to admit it or not! I have $20 on that, haha. But anyways, it’s been great knowing you and sharing all these great memories so far and I hope to create many more! I love how we have all become so close again! It has been awesome to finally be reconnecting again, because I was not there for a lot of years and missed out on a lot of memories thanks to one girl in particular, if you know who I am talking about, haha. We all make mistakes, and I definitely learned from that one. I am so glad that MSKS has reconnected because it was us four from the beginning! From doing the Vaskahi Mela together to going clubbing together, it has been a great experience and just overall a great time with great friends! We have had soo many fun times in L.A. especially when we had the movie night and no one knows what movie we watched and they will never know, it will forever remain a secret! haha. Also, that one time when we were going to go clubbing and Monique got the date wrong, she’s a brilliant one eh? haha. Well we had some great times! All the sleepovers, and birthday parties we all had, and just growing up with one another were the most memorable moments, I will never forget the times we had and plan to have many more! Like someone once said, "Like branches of a tree we grow in different directions, yet our roots remain as one. Each of our lives will always be a special part of the other's." I love you Harsonam! Hope your 21st is amazing! Love, Sunita
20: I hope your dreams take you to the corners of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known.
21: "Wherever you go, go with all your heart." ~Confucius | Well hello there. I’m not going to do the generic birthday stuff. Instead I have some words of wisdom (facts) that every raccoon should be aware of. Raccoons are commonly referred to as the “masked bandit” for good reason. One of the interesting raccoon facts is that this animal can get into about anything. Literally, they can open doors, pull out drawers, open fish traps, you name it. Because of their nimble little hands, sheer determination, and natural curiosity when it comes to food, raccoons are notorious for making a mess as they search for something to eat. Though these are funny, I feel like most of the facts describe you as a human being or at least this is the way I see you. You are always determined to stay on top of your things and you have a very lively personality that I admire. Your jokes are okay. But it’s the fact that you try to be funny that counts. Hee. It goes without saying that you will have a great future ahead of you and many great birthdays like these. Do it big! hAPPY bIRTHDAY! Cheers, Harnek Singh
22: Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson | Have a very special 21st birthday Sonam! You are such an amazing girl! I'm looking forward to all of our cooking dates. Love, Simona
23: Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success. ~Swami Sivananda | You did it! | Happy Birthday Harsonam! I hope you have been having a sensational summer and make the best of your last year at UCLA! Take care and if you are ever in the Bay Area anytime soon, you better hit me up! Once again, Happy Birthday!
