FYI: Two of my favorite girls were born on this day…….

Today is a super special day because it is the birthday of two very special people in my life… daughter, Brynn….and my sister, Sarah. I remember when it came time to schedule the C-section for my daughter to be born, and I had a couple dates to choose from… being my sisters birthday….and my sister graciously agreed to share her birthday with Brynn.

I can’t believe that my youngest child turns 14 today….where has the time gone? She is so beautiful it hurts…..her heart is so big…..her singing starts at the crack of dawn every day and never stops, her joy is infectious, her love of animals is precious, her spirit is strong, she never meets a stranger, and she never holds back. I was so touched when I picked her up from her school trip last week, and she came running off the bus yelling “MOMMY!” and ran over to me for the biggest hug. I am so glad that she is not “to cool” to show affection in front of her peers….and the fact that in that moment she just loved with reckless abandon……like she always does. I love this kid…..forever. Happiest of birthdays to you my child…….can’t wait to celebrate you today!

……and then there is my baby sister, Sarah. I talk about her here sometimes because she has a wonderful little shop called Cranny, where she makes the prettiest things…….but more importantly because I love her so much and am so proud of her. If you do not read her blog you should start…..her photography and words are so achingly beautiful it will make you want to be a better person. The way she captures her precious boys {my fantastic nephews}, the way she chooses to live her life more abundantly, the love for her husband, the love of being a mom, being completely devoted to her children and family, her gorgeous handwriting… sister is an inspiration to me. I love you “Sakes” and hope you have a super special day! I wish we could be together today……..
