Happy Birthday Julie


Today is my oldest "Bonus" daughter's birthday! And I say "Older" with quotes because is she creeping up to her 30's??? NNOOOO!!! She's not there yet!!! Just in her "late 20's" now but she's like I was - I so totally dreaded getting close to 30... now, I just forget how old I am... maybe its because of the age.

I just wish Julie was close by... times like this is when I absolutely hate there are so many states & miles away!

And for those of you who dont know this awesome young lady... let me tell you who she is!

She is a precious soul who has such a loving heart... she loves her family & is willing to do whatever it takes to take care of them.... she takes her family as a high priority -

she is a wife who married her high school sweetheart - & is devoted to her husband in every way... she met him at such a young age & knew she was going to marry him. When people would tell a young couple they would never last - she knew... she's such a good wife - believes in marriage with everything in her....

she is an incredible mom who is raising such a precious little boy (who I think is the most handsome little dude in the whole world!) ... she adores her son in every way - & who can blame her when those beautiful blue eyes look at you!!! - but I'm most excited about the way she's going to raise her son - in giving an example of a relationship with God! Mommy is a word that just fits her so well!
she is a friend who goes out of her way to support her friendships & takes them totally to heart.... she has kept friendships that she has had since she was a young girl - even through moves & distance - she values the people that are - and have been- in her life


she is extremely intelligent... working on her PhD to become a scientist - the way her brain wraps around these things just blows me away ...

she is a genius in the kitchen! She can make some incredible dishes - & is all about the natural foods & spices... I LOVE when she visits because we know we're going to get a sample of her fanciness.. & my kitchen actually gets USED!!!


Most importantly - she is a Godly woman - a woman who loves the Lord - is thankful for Jesus - lives by His word - & makes decisions to reflect it. She dedicates herself to her church, & she is not ashamed of her love for Christ.


And I'm proud to say too - she is more than a daughter to me - she is my dear friend...

I love you Jules!!!! Happy Birthday Princess!
