Happy Birthday!!

Today we celebrate the life of one of the sweetest girls you would ever want to meet, my sister~in~love Andi! 

She is clearly gorgeous on the outside but she is every bit as beautiful deep within.  If you met her you'd love her, I mean really love her, and if you didn't, well then there is obviously something wrong with you...no offense or anything.  :)

You can't help but smile when you are around her.  She is hilariously funny, usually without even trying to be!  She loves to have a good time, and good times tend to follow her wherever she goes.
Andi is always so excited to see everyone and knows just how to make you feel so very loved.  She is one of the prettiest in a room and yet is always the one who is showering others with compliments.  
They don't come any sweeter, I'm sure of it.

I was thinking today about how close her birthday is to September 11th, obviously only two days later.  For the past 10 years the days leading to her birthday have been full of sad, depressing news stories.  Stories that pierce a nation, making it bleed.  And yet I find it so fitting that her birthday is so very close to a day such as September the 11th, because Andi is the water that puts out fires, she is joy in the midst of sadness, she is  beauty amongst ashes...

Andi we love you dearly.
Words never feel like quite enough but we pray that somehow you will understand just how very blessed we feel to have you as part of our family.  You truly are a perfect fit!

Be blessed beauty~

Happy birthday from all of us!
