happy happy birthday to the lady on the left. both of these two share a birthday month, just under two weeks apart! my 'little' sister has been a constant pulse and unmovable stone in my life. i constantly seek her advice when i have big life decisions, and shape certain parts of my life in her footsteps-- which is funny, because i'm supposed to be the big brother. but she's found her light in my niece, Raelyn and her soon-to-be august hobbit. it's a tough journey being an adult, let alone a mom, but she wears it proudly. one of the most important women in my life, i am indebted to Jaime, and celebrate her today, even though i can't be around in person. happy 36th, Loopa!!!
