It’s Abby’s birthday today.
And I’m here to say, if you only get one daughter-in-law, you count your lucky stars when you get a gem like her.
She’s always up for experimenting with me in the kitchen:
(and knows how to cook up some pretty healthy deliciousness)
She’s always up for an adventure, whether it’s close to home or hanging with hippos and giraffes in the middle of Africa:
Always up to try new things…from skiing:
…to spending a summer teaching English in China:
…to randomly whipping up a new shirt for herself on the sewing machine:
She’s the first one to volunteer to come with me to things like midnight mass and all my hiking desires:
She is instant friends with all the cousins, so interested in them and giving out so much love:
And these new sisters sure adore her.
She is an extremely talented artist:
So creative in every way. And always pushing to progress and learn.
But the think I love most about her is her heart. She is filled with kindness. She knows how to dig deep and to see needs and to see the best in everyone.
Sure love you, Abby Jane!
Happy Happy Birthday!
