My First Sister...

Today is a special day!

It's this lovely lady's birthday.....

(They are both lovely, but I'm talking about the one with the sunglasses on top of her head.)

I'll never forget the day I found out my oldest brother was going to get married. I would finally have a sister! Happy for Scott, and happy for me!!

Little did I know how wonderful she would turn out to be. She is a perfect match for my brother. They compliment each other like peanut butter to jelly.

As a mom, Shelly can't be beat. Her kids are number one and they know it. She's a fantastic role model, loving mother, and an awesome soccer coach to boot!

I've learned a lot from Shelly and her parenting skills.

She makes the best spaghetti sauce known to mankind.

She's smart, got great decorating sense, and her home is always impeccably clean.

She's a lot of fun to be around and has turned out to be a perfect vacation companion over the years!

I wish I lived closer to her because I know we'd be even better friends without the miles between us. I don't tell her enough how wonderful I think she is and I thank my lucky stars she's part of our family.

Happy Birthday Shelly!

I know you already had four sisters...thanks for always making me feel like your fifth!

Have a spectacular day!!
