My youngest niece Sam is celebrating her birthday today. It's going to be quite a year of celebrating for Sam, too.
The picture below is from her Pinning Ceremony. We are all so proud of Sam for her hard work. She's going to do great things.
Coming ahead this year, Sam will be getting married to Kyle (seen in the photo). That will be quite a celebration, too. Just a few weeks after that, Sam, Kyle and I will be running in the Chicago Marathon.
Sam is an amazing young lady. She is smart, tough, sweet and has a huge heart and a great sense of humor. I couldn't be prouder of Sam.
I am also so happy to be involved in the Marathon with her and Kyle. I appreciate them letting me share in the experience.
Happy birthday Sam. I hope this is your best year yet! I love you!
