Happy Birthday Shay!!!

Today is LaShay's birthday. Shay Burch, that is!

We first became friends way back in 2nd grade.

I understand she is a big-wig educator in Florida now, but I have some of my most favorite memories of her from back in the day....
  • She was always my shortest friend and cute as pie.
  • Her mom made the best pancakes for breakfast.
  • She was very difficult to wake from a deep sleep on Saturday mornings which was most frustrating for a weird kid like me who woke up early
  • Her prom dress didn't come in until the last minute...in 11th grade, I think.
  • She always talked about "my cousin Sherry" who was a mystery-cousin back then, but I know Sherry now and she really is wonderful!
  • She knew every word to every song on the radio
  • NKOTB, baby!
  • She performed Whitney Houston in the "Shower of Stars" with a big gold bow in her hair
  • She, Adrian, and Rainer performed "Love Shack" at our senior night

I'm really proud of you Shay and I hope you have many more Happy Days!
