Happy Birthday Shelley

Today is Shelley's 21st birthday. (on the 21st of the month...this is called a "golden birthday", it only happens once in your life! )

Shelley is such a fun sister! She is always supportive and encouraging. She has been so helpful as an "auntie"...most memorably as our "nanny" for a few months when Caleb was brand new. She filled in all the gaps I could not quite accomplish and she was great company! I always love having Shell along on trips as she is so much fun to be with for both me and the kids. During the "So You Think You Can Dance" season, I cherished knowing that once a week I would get to have Shell all to myself, and I made sure there was taco salad available for her consumption! I love hearing about and seeing her artistic projects! I love walking in to the office to see her smiling face but more importantly to see what she is wearing:) I feel so thankful that Shell is in the office giving of her time and talents to bless Rhino Chiropractic! I don't quite understand how she does it but I admire her discipline with what she eats and her commitment to running. I know at this stage of Shelley's life there are lots of unknowns...career, husband, family, travel...but I am certain anything she does will be as fabulous, exciting and blessed as her life has been thus far!


Such a fun auntie!!


We went scootering around town to celebrate Shelley's Golden birthday!
