25 Things I Wish I Could Tell My Sister on Her 25th Birthday


Today is June 2 and would have been my sister Ashlee’s 25th birthday.

Let’s all take a moment to remember the amazing and beautiful person she was and spirit that she is:

Sadly she lost her battle with ocular melanoma almost 2 years ago (if you don’t know the story you can catch up here.)  So without further ado here are 25 things I wish I could tell my little sister on her 25th birthday.
