Today my little sister turns 22!!
It has been quite a year for her too!
She started off celebrating being 21 with a drinking around the world adventure of Disney World.
She then packed up and headed to Spain to dig up new friends at field school….
… and back packed around Europe with my Dad.
Family vacation brought her to the beach…
….. and to the mountains.
Oh yeah, she also met a boy somewhere in between.
Being 21 also meant the start of her Senior year and the last Football season as a student of FSU.
Christmas was a time of goofiness.
New Years marked the start of 2009 and the halfway point of making it to 22.
In March Kelly became a miracle…
…and in April she proved nothing is impossible, by conquering a 15 mile race a month after defying all odds.
In the final week of her 21st year Kelly graduated from FSU Magna Cum Laude.
Yes, 21 was a great year for my little sister, but I know 22 will be even better. Kelly has a summer ahead of vacations, working for the Canaveral seashore, starting Grad School in the fall and of course living close to me!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELLLY!!!!!!
Can you believe I got a little teary eye putting that together? I can’t believe all that has happened since Kelly’s last birthday and trust me I could have added so much more!!
Kelly is actually on her way back from hiking in the mountains with her boyfriend so I am not sure if I will get a chance to actually see her today, but we will be celebrating tomorrow!!
I started this morning with the yoga DVD Melissa had sent me and a nice bowl of cereal.
In the mix I had 1/2 cup kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters, 1/2 cup Quaker Oatmeal Squares, Vanilla Non-Fat Yogurt, Blueberries, Strawberries & 1/4 of a Pomegrante Walnut Honest Foods Granola Plank.
Now I just have to wait for a reasonable hour to call my little sister and wish her a big Happy Birthday on the phone!
