Happy Birthday Aunt Christy

Happy Birthday, Aunt Christy!

Today is Mark's little sister's birthday.  

Christy has grown to be, not only a sister to me, but also a good friend.  She is also quite definitely the FUN Aunt!  She is always full of adventure, creativity, and thoughtfulness.  Vienne seriously loved her Aunty Christy.  They were buds.  I have sweet memories of Christy teaching Vienne to swim in the river...Christy teaching Vienne how to roast and enjoy her first marshmallow by a bonfire...Vienne and Christy putting temporary tattoos on each other...just to name a few.
We love Christy so so much.  I swear, Mark has the most amazing siblings.

Here are a few photos of Vienne and Christy, together, through the years~

WE LOVE YOU AUNT CHRISTY!!
HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
I WISH VIENNE COULD SEND YOU A HUG AND A HAND PAINTED CARD LIKE SHE USED TO.  :(
