to the birthday girl

If every family has a drama queen Heather is ours. She is the big sister who got me my very first shimmery pink lip gloss and mascara and showed me how to use them. There are seven years between us, so growing up we were always at pretty different stages, but I always loved my beautiful big sister. She seemed to always have to learn things the hard way which is probably why her compassion and understanding of people runs so deep. She is a wonderful listener and encourager. She's a mother to (soon to be) five children.
She's the only Riley sibling that still resides in New Jersey so we miss her lots. So cheers to you sweet sister.
