Happy birthday, sis.

The bond fostered by sisterhood, cultivated in the early 80s by an inexplicable love of Bret Michaels, "Don't Mess With My Toot Toot," and American Bandstand dance-offs, and cemented in our early teen years by White Rain hairspray and the Pontiac 6000 truly is a treasure in my life.
Leigh Ann, I wanted to be as cool as you from as young as I can remember.  Having met and surpassed that standard;), I now hope to one day be half the mother you prove yourself to be everyday. Thank you for inspiring me to be better. Thank you for making me feel hopeful. Thank you for giving us Isabella. Thank you for adding such depth and laughter and fun to my life. 

Happy birthday, Leigh. My wish for you: nothin' but a good time.


  1. I have sat here for the longest time thinking about these pictures and how you two have become such close sisters. Seeing you two grow up together and then having a little sister thrown in the mix has given me so much joy and love and an appreciation of "family". May all three of you always be as close to each other as you are now. I fully expect you and Adrienne to be in the delivery room with Leigh Ann to welcome the new Morgan baby just as you were when Isabella was born. The Turner girls never miss a party!


    1. I don't have anything clever or interesting to say; just wanted you to know I loved that comment, Mom. Thanks for reading and for always offering such sweet and funny feedback.
      Never miss a party...that's right; we were taught well:)
