Its Birthday Time!

Today my sweet little sister turns 32!

A couple of years ago I posted the following. I have added two other additions to the list to bring it to 32. Which is the number of the day (if you are a Sesame Street fan!)

Today, Saturday, is Abby's 30th birthday.
Like most of us, she is probably thinking that she hasn't become the person she thought she would be by the age of 30. So, I took it upon myself to make a list of her accomplishments as a little birthday present to her. If you think of others please leave them in the comments for us to see!

met and fell in love with the perfect man for her

I love you Abby Jo. I know a few things on that list have changed in the last two years, but it doesn't mean you weren't a part of them, and they a part of you.

Happy 32!

Hope its been a great day!

Thanks, Sister! Yes, some things on that list have changed for the better...and you are right...I made things happen and was a part of them and no one can argue that. I appreciate you and your heart.
