Aunt Jan's Birthday!!

Only an aunt can give hugs like a mother, keep secrets like a sister and share love like a friend. ~Author Unknown

Today is my Mom's youngest Sister, Jan's Birthday!! We are privileged enough to have her here with us today to help her celebrate.  She flew here to see us from her beautiful home in Colorado Springs, Colorado last Tuesday!! Hopefully we can make her feel very special on her special day! I was fortunate enough to get a lot of her physical traits, specifically the nose :) The choices I had in the family of noses was not good....but my daughter Jess and I got my Aunt Jan's nose! Nothing special, just a normal nose! 

Jan is a very special person to me and has been so supportive, especially lately.  She has always been there at the other end of the phone whenever I needed her....either to just work as a place to vent or to help with decisions and offer advice. I don't know what I would do without her to talk to! Thank You so much Aunt Jan you are one special lady, and especially special to me!!
