Happy Birthday, Christa!

I have the most wonderful sisters in the world. Have I mentioned that before? :-) And today is the birthday of one of those wonderful sisters.

And that sister is Christa Marie (McDonald) Blanchard. She turns 24!!

We've shared a lot together, from arguments to agreements, from laughter to tears, from talking to dancing to music and bike riding!
I have so many memories that bring tears to my eyes...and though I miss her terribly I am so glad that she has a wonderful husband and beautiful baby now! :-)

Thank you for being such a blessing to me, Christa...and for being a true sister to me. I love you.

HAPPY 24th BIRTHDAY!!!


Love,

Jessica

Happy Birthday to your sister Christa!

By the way, thanks for the comment!
It some how ended up in my spam queue so I didn't find it until today, so that's why it didn't show up.
