HOLY BIRTHDAYS! 3 TO BE EXACT!

Our beautiful neice Jordyn's 8th birthday is today! I can't believe how big she is getting! We are so proud of her and how great of a big sister she is for her 3 younger brothers. They really love her and look up to her. We are so proud that she will be baptised on Aug. 2nd to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It is such a blessed day and we are so excited that we will see her in a couple weeks! We love you so much Jordyn and miss you! We'll see you soon and we are so happy for your desire to be baptised!
My oldest sister Jamie's birthday was Friday, June 27th. She is such an amazing sister and I am so lucky to have her in my life. She is such an amazing mom and just an awesome person that I really look up to. We miss her so much but are thankful for when we do get to visit. This was in March when we visited her. I hope you had a great birthday Jamie. I love you so much and am so lucky to have you to look up to as a mother, a sister, a teacher and a very best friend.
Yesterday, June 28th was my sister Jenn's birthday. She is such a sweet person and really a great mom and wife. We are very lucky to have such a great relationship with Jenn and James. She has been such an example to me and I appreciate all that she has helped me with. I feel very fortunate to be so close to her and to see first hand the strength she has as a woman. I hope you had a great birthday Jenn. Thanks for being my sister, but also my best friend. I love you!

I feel overwhelmed with joy when I think of all the women in my life that have helped me see the beauty of being a daughter of God. I am so fortunate to have such a bond with them that grows daily. They teach me so much and we have so much fun when we are together. I hope all three of you had an awesome birthday and know how much we love you and think the world of you!
