Happy Birthday Hannah!!!!

(PICTURE: Even as a little kid, Hannah was able to fill big shoes.)

Minus a couple years in my teens, I have always been immensely proud of my sister. She is without a doubt the smartest, kindest, funniest person I have ever known. One of the things I hold to be unshakable in this world is that if my sister puts her mind to something, it will get done.*

Today is Hannah's birthday and I'm trying to pinpoint the exact moment when she went from being the most adorable little kid ever, to a beautiful, hard working, HOME OWNING woman. I made a video to help me wrap my head around it.

Love you, Hannah!

* The rare exception was when Hannah took kickboxing lessons to try and fight me (hence the line about a few years in my teens) and only proceeded to embarrass herself every time I would catch her leg and then give her a taste of her own medicine (if her medicine was stronger and swifter and actually hurt).

You made me cry and laugh so early in the morning. It seems like yesterday that I brought Hannah home to her 2 big brothers!

I am so glad the real star of that video was the Mona Lisa Hannah. Love you!
