Melissa

Friends, this is my sweet sister, and she is a SENIOR.  

SERIOUSLY.  

FREAKING OUT A LITTLE.

When I met this girl, she was a spunky fifteen-year-old with the world in front of her, and now...my goodness.  She's a tenacious eighteen-year-old who still has the world in front of her--but she has a lot tucked away in her pocket too!  She loves to work, loves her family, loves her puppy, and of course her boyfriend.  I can't even begin to guess what adventures she has in her future, but I'd bet a lot of money on that one word--adventures.

And she's beautiful.
