…and it’s her BIRTHDAY today.

23 years old.


I still remember when I could barely pull that hair of hers into puny ponytails.

Oh I was so proud!

This girl has never been afraid to make her own style:

Has always been one to jump up and give away part of her heart:

She’s not afraid to fight for what she wants:

The best adventure partner:

Did I mention her sense of style?:)

Has the best sense of humor:

(Why does that make me chuckle still as I sit here and write this??)

She’s not afraid to forge her own paths:

She is an artist in all kinds of mediums:

Not afraid to try new things:

Ok, maybe afraid, but will do it anyway, and LOVE what comes.

She is a hero for her sisters, all four:

And a hero to her brother too:

Knew how to find the best husband:

Sometimes not-so-smart in the sun category:)

(But very smart in the grocery shopping category…you gotta have cookie ingredients)

Owns that height of hers:

I am so grateful that not only is she my girl, but she’s one of my best friends in the whole wide world.

Love you forever Elle Belle!

Have the best birthday ever!
