Today is my little sister's 25th birthday! In honor of her becoming a real adult, engaged and everything, I thought I'd post pictures and memories of her! Bear with me, these are not in any sort of chronological order:
Lynsey is so compassionate. After I had Lily, I struggled heavily with PPD. Even though Lyn was struggling with emotional trials of her own, she drove the 6 hours to Montana and stayed with me for a week to help me. She even deep cleaned my bathroom! Mike sure appreciated that one. Here are photos of that week:
Lynsey is open to new things. Who doesn't like to have needles stuck in their face?
Lynsey is dedicated and faithful. She served a church mission - 18 months in Ireland. My folks were talking to her on the phone on Christmas in this picture:
Lynsey is always beautiful! No makeup, hair not done, pj's on... no one should be allowed to look this good:
Lynsey is tall. It makes me sad that she's taller than me. And that she has a waist. Even when I'm *not* pregnant, I don't have a waist:
Lynsey likes to be one with nature. She loves to camp, hike, explore caves, and risk death by mosquito's just to view the beauty in the world:
In short, I am so proud of my sister. She's been a great friend and a great example to me. I'm so excited for her future and the many things that she will accomplish. I love you Pooh!
