I love my sister-in-law more than fried chicken and elastic waistbands. As a pudgy pregnant woman, this is a HUGE compliment.
Lauren has been part of our lives for several years. We were so tickled when she and Clay got married in December. She is a perfect fit for Clay and a wonderful addition to our family. They make the cutest couple.
Lauren was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease about 10 years ago and is a super-trooper. I know that she doesn’t feel well all the time, but you never see her without a smile on her face. Nothing stops her! She is almost finished with law school and is on the go constantly.
She and Clay are participating in a walk for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America this weekend at the UT Martin Fitness Trail. Since Birddog still isn’t allowed to take long trips in the car, we will not be able to attend, but I am sure that she will know we will be there in spirit.
If you would like to support Lauren’s efforts, you can make a donation here. You can always drop by Clay’s blog for more information or just to type some words of encouragement.
I am Ladybird and this is my website. I am wife to Birddog and mommy to EC, aka Babybird. Our extended family includes our canine children, Jake and Elwood, and feline kid, Callie. I live in a zoo. I have an addiction to winter coats, Calvin and Hobbes and really bad reality television. I truly believe that all problems can be solved by a Washington State Martini. I love the feeling of sand between my toes and cleaning my ears out with a q-tip. I watch documentaries and listen to NPR. The purpose of this blog is to keep in touch with friends, while trying not to offend my family. Let me know how I am doing.
