I realize I got lucky to have you as my sister, well all five of your sisters and three brothers did. I just got extra lucky because I got to follow you around when we were little, except when you were 16 and I was 15 and too young to be in your company, and I still get to do that now.
I'm still not sure what I'm getting you for your birthday, I gotta start with going back all the way to January and remembering what you added to your wish list. But for now you deserve a special spot on my blog, that is definitely the least I can do and also, hope that was one of your wishes. I just want to wish you a happy birthday, in hopes that you'll enjoy your day and celebrate life. You've had many great adventures and successful years, but the best still lies ahead. You are beautiful in every way, encouraging and inspiring to many, and bring much joy into my life. Days are never the same when you're not around, your presence is just contagious for some reason. And I know it seems nearly impossible, but I do love you almost just as much as you love me. Happy Birthday!
P.S. You + Coffee = My favorite photo of you, for many obvious reasons.
