wishes that cross 2064 miles

Today is my darling sister Jessie's birthday. On days like this, I really hate the 2064 miles that separate us. And I hold on to the anticipation of her visit next month!

A few things about Jessie:

She is the mother of 3 beautiful girls. Lola (deceased), Bella, and Fiona. I love them all. Jessie is a wonderful mother, and clever to boot. She really parents with intention, something I am always trying to improve at myself.

She is married to Timm, who I'm convinced is the perfect man for her! I love him, too.

She recently started running and has already run her first 5K race! You go, girl!

I am so impressed by this. When Jessie sets her mind to accomplish something, she is unstoppable.

She is a party planner extraordinaire! I wish I lived close enough to attend one of her parties.

She has an impeccable eye for detail -- the food, the decor, the invitations, the thank yous, everything is the cutest thing you've ever seen.

She is the Coupon Queen. She taught an Enrichment class on couponing and amazed everyone with the great deals she gets, freebies, etc. It's pretty amazing.

She also has the best handwriting!

She is one of the most creative people I've ever met, and that's saying something! Everything she touches turns to gold, and I have copied many of her designs.

She loves books as much as I do. She uses the library like crazy. Also, we like pretty much all the same books, which is handy for recommending and discussing.

Ditto on tv shows. She ended a recent phone conversation by saying, "Okay, I guess I won't talk to you while you're gone. Unless there's a dramatic reality tv event that we need to discuss."

She recently discovered a love of poker and jokes about playing for coupons.

She is pensive, introspective, and a real deep thinker.

She inspires me in so very many ways.

Happy birthday, Jess! I love you so.

Happy Birthday (belated, of course) Jessie!

I love reading about Jessie. I think we are kindred spirits (minus the talents on my end)... I need to try to get back in her blog circle.
