24 Things We Love About Courtney

posted Saturday October 29th, 2011

Typically in our family, we reserve our “Things We Love” lists for Big Birthdays, so I figured our beloved friend and sitter Courtney would get hers next year when she turns 25.

Sophie had other plans.

She just dictated her list of 24 things she loves about Courtney. I was asked to insert a few, as well, so I did — I could easily go to 100.

“Send it to her — she will laugh,” Sophie said. So here you go, Courtney. Happy birthday!

  1. “Courtney is a good sense of human being,” and “Courtney loves Sophie.” Ahhhhhhhh. <3

  2. Yes she is!!! And also very lucky to have such a wonderful family like yours in her life!

  3. Like you, I could easily go to 100 and beyond about what I love about Courtney. I teared up when I read this list, because as Courtney’s oldest sister, I couldn’t be more proud. While compliments like being a “good fashion model” or “good with a glue gun” are always nice to hear, Sophie has nailed it on what makes Courtney such an amazing person. She has a “good sense of human being” and is a good daughter, sister and friend. To me, there is no greater compliment. Thanks for loving my sister…I know she loves you all right back!
