Oh, Jen. How do I love Jen? Jen came into my life 14 years ago as an instant sister, friend, confidant and supporter. The day my mom married Jen’s dad was the day I met Jen and her siblings. This could have been a really bad situation, but it turned out to be one of the best things that has happened to me. I feel like we all embraced each other and created a new ‘Brady Bunch’ family easily and joyfully.
Four months after the wedding, Jen moved out to Oregon and I had a live-in real-life sister! We had bunk beds and everything! We have always been close and I have always loved her.
She now has a wonderfully loving husband and two sweet little blond boys. I love the fact that the random number generator pulled Jen’s name because she sent me one of the greatest birthday messages yesterday – her oldest son singing my Happy Birthday! Jen is an incredible mother and she is raising two fantastic boys!
