Ashlee is my go-to person. When I need to know anything about anything I call Ashlee. She has taught me how to make a purse, a flourless chocolate cake, baked Alaska, and the perfect fondue. She can make a rabbit out of dough, perform alterations on bridesmaid dresses, and create fabulous diaper bags that look just like Petunia Pickle Bottom ones. She has been all over the world and was a wonderful ballerina, and I hear that she can replace the ignition on a 1954 Ford truck, though not without getting stuck under it. :) She's the person I called with all my insane, paranoid questions after Judah was born. She's like a really, really super nice version of Martha Stewart, except she's not a criminal. So far the only thing I've found that has stumped Ashlee is the tree skirt we tried to copy from a magazine last year, and given enough time, I'm sure she'd figure that out too.
Ashlee, I'm so very glad we're sisters (in-law). I couldn't have asked for better. I feel like we really are sisters, and it makes me smile every time Grandma and Naomi confuse one of us for the other. What a compliment to me! I love you, and hope you have a wonderful day and year.
