We’ve capsized rafts and commanded canoes, pulled hair and shared clothes, rooms, bunk beds, cars, colleges. I’ll never be able to catch you (you got the long-legged genes), but dangit, I’ll be cheering for you, always.
To my sister and friend — lighthearted, kind, beautiful — whom I am fortunate to have been side by side with in life and have shared more memories, laughs, tears and growing pains with than anyone I know; you amaze me.
Happiest day, Heidi Beth! Very lucky to have you as a big, little sister.
My grandma, Donna Jean (Jensen) Christen — her 1941 high school graduation photo (L), and in Devils Lake, North Dakota in 1946 (R). She will celebrate her 90th birthday in June.
For my Dad, who has always shown me hard work, lighthearted humor, melodious music and dedication.
Thanks for encouraging me to wear tasteful jumpers and to stop and smell the roses.
I had a fantastic weekend with family visiting from North Dakota, South Dakota, and California — many things on the agenda that I don’t usually get to do in the city! Thank you for all the groovy company and good times! And on that note…
