Happy Birthday Alexis!

Paul Romani

Pear Tree director, Alexis, is 30 today!

Those round number ages like 10, 20, 30, 40, are as significant as those of 16, 18 and 21. So, with this in mind, I thought it was appropriate to celebrate Alexis’ birthday publicly.

Let’s start with the cute before and after photos:

Alexis and I met while teaching in England in 2003. I was amazed at how genuinely nice she was. She was the first person I’d met who treat everyone with respect and didn’t judge them. I knew this had to be a special lady. And, we have been together ever since.
After having lived in England, Germany, Spain and Canada, she is still by far the nicest person I’ve ever met, and is amazing with children! They love her.
Such human traits have proven themselves to be appreciate across cultures. They also make her an extremely valuable member of society. Alexis has two very proud parents – as well they should be.
I truly believe the world is a better place with Alexis around.
Who would think she was 30?!
Happy Birthday Alexis!
