Wallace Walkers

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.

Go Wallace Walkers!
