Hail Anne, Full of Grace at 20:11

What I'm Doing at 20:11 in 2011... We are celebrating Anne's birthday not only today, but all month long. We tease her about the significance of her birthday, but truly, there isn't anyone who knows her who isn't celebrating as well.

I've written about Anne before and every time I do it always seems inadequate. Anne has lots of tremendous qualities and my words could never express what she means to everyone she knows. Anne has the kindest heart of anyone I know. Her generosity knows no limits and her overwhelming love for her family shines through in everything she does.

So all sarcasm aside, and with all sincerity I can honestly say, this is one of the most important days of the year for me too. Anne is a tremendous blessing in my life. And so we celebrate.

At 8:11, we were celebrating Anne at the home of Jim and Judee Baballe. Anne is pictured here with Jimmy.
