Happy Birthday to one of the most beautiful women I know. You are truly as beautiful inside as you are out!

You are one of the best friends anyone could ask for. You're always ready with a smile or a hug or a shoulder to cry on.

You are fun loving and spontaneous.

You are a fabulous wife and mother and always put your family first. And they love you for it.


I do have to question a couple of style choices:
And this is why Ben calls her Amish. And um...that dude is creepy.
A prairie skirt. You were working it, but in a PRAIRIE skirt!!

 A MULLET? Really?!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Hope your day is great!! I LOVE YOU!

(Lise and the family are camping in Cherokee and won't be back til Tuesday. She may not even see this til then!)


  1. Joy, on this birthday I want you to know that YOUR friendship has been the greatest gift!
    I miss you and camping is.......(fill in the blank) lol

  2. She's going to kill you for a few of these pics! I prefer her in the leopard coat...rather than the prairie skirt.
