Happy Birthday Katie!! My sister turns 23 today.
(me on the left, Katie on the right and I have no idea what year this was).
And on the anniversary of the largest terrorist attack in America's history, I think of my brother Ben, who's over seas in the heat, the sand, the danger - away from the comfort and security of home. I hope you are safe and know that there are so many people who love you and cannot wait for your safe return home!
