The many things...

...that I love about you that I NEVER want to forget!

You are beautiful on the outside, but far more beautiful on the inside. When I took this picture of you, you politely asked if I got "the shot". You were so concerned that I got a good pic to edit...you little love!

You are laid back and such a dreamer. You always talk about the future and how you want to be an engineer. Before you wanted to become an engineer, you wanted to be a DJ. You would talk about mixing music and getting a crowd excited. You'll be great at whatever you choose.

You don't take anything from anyone and are not afraid to give the "stink eye" if and when it is needed...(you are not afraid to give it to me, too!...you turkey :P).

You forgive easily and often with a slight smile. I love your forgiving heart. I wish I were as mature at times.

You CRACK yourself up! I love that you laugh at yourself and all of the silly things that life has to offer. Your favorite thing right now is potty humor. I swear you remind me of a boy at times. If I say the word, "poot, fart, diarrhea" you laugh out loud and A LOT! You love to tell me knock knock jokes that are on the cusp of being inappropriate. While I try to keep a straight face, we usually burst into laughter jointly and I can't help but love it!

You break into dance at the drop of a hat and don't care who is around to see it. Right now your fav. moves are the running man, roger rabbit, the sprinkler and the white man's overbite. You love to watch the youtube video of the young couple whose wedding party danced down the aisle to the Chris Brown song. You watch it over and over and always say, "I am going to do that when I get married. So cool!".

You think you are all that AND a bag of chips. However, you are quite humble when people pass around compliments. You always say thank you and blush. It is quite cute.

You say you have something "importNant" to tell me and will bust into story. You are a good storyteller, but sometimes lose me as you will start one subject and jump to the next and get tickled when you realize I am not following :)

You're soft and squishy and crack up hysterically when I grab the inside of your thigh and tickle you. You laugh so hard that no sounds come out. You are teeny tiny and have a figure most would kill for, yet, you refuse to wear booty shorts or tank tops and are extremely modest. You would live in basketball shorts, abercrombie t's and converse tennis shoes. You bite your nails and your toenails are longer than any I've ever seen (ick!) You love to stick your feet in my face and say, "Cut em' sis" and laugh as I get completely grossed out! Yet, you are still simply beautiful!

You are a daughter of God, daughter to mom and dad, sister to Greg and I, sister-in-law to Laurie, student, friend to many, dancer, dreamer, lover of animals (particularly Sambo), avid reader, great listener, singer of Opera :), basketball lover, Steeler's fan, precious little girl.

Never ever lose who you are. Stay true to your character and never follow the "norm". Don't be afraid to stand out! I love you to the moon and back!!!
