Happy Birthday Ann!

Today is my really good friend, Ann's birthday. I met her at the airport when I worked there. We have been good friends ever since. She is one of my closest friends I received from working at the airport. I have known her now for 10 years and we only worked the first 2 years of that together before she left to be a mommy. That means we have kept close over the last 8 years without working together. I have to say, I was blessed working there to receive such a friend. I want to list the top 5 reasons why I love her.

Here we are on Twilight night, when the movie first opened. We are touching a replica of Dr. Cullen's car. We had so much fun that night.

5# I love how talented she is. She has talent in decorating. You should see her beautiful home. Especially during a holiday. She always has decorations up for every holiday. It makes you feel so welcome in her home. She is very organized and shares that talent with others by teaching others to be organized.

#4- I love that she is not afraid to have slumber parties still with the gals. I have gone to 2 parties that she has thrown and spent the night over at her house. I love how she gets into the parties she throws too. The picture above was from one of those parties. It was a Twilight sleep over party and it was so fun. I posted about it. Check it out. Twilight party.

#3- I love that she is full of love for others. She loves to lift other people's burdens. She loves to do service for others and leave them happier than when she found them.

#2- I love that she has always been such an example to me. For example, she is a wonderful mother to her children. Her and her husband have been examples to me of how a marriage should be—happy. She has always been a great example of how we should share our testimonies of the gospel. She helped me so much by doing this while I was an inactive member of the church.

The #1 reason I love her is that she is truly my other big sister. She has always loved me no matter what stupid thing I was doing in my life at the time. She has always been there to listen to me and give me counsel. I can't even tell you how much she has helped me with Ayla.

Happy Birthday Ann!

I hope you have a wonderful day because you are so wonderful. I am so happy in my life right now and I couldn't have done it without you. Thank you! I love you!

I love you Heather. Thanks for being my friend, my sister and for looking over my many faults.

What a sweet sharing of a friend. I forgot who said this but I think it applies, "a friend is a single soul dwelling in two seperate bodies."
I think friends are the sisters we choose. Looks like you chose well!

Nice tribute Heather. I'm glad that you found me too. I have a private baby blog, but I haven't updated that in months. And I totally laughed at the pic. It brought back some fond memories...
