Happy Birthday Mindy!

Today is a very special persons Birthday … if you don’t know Mindy she has been a member of Team Jilly for just over a year. She not only completes us … but she makes work A LOT more fun. She is easy going and kind hearted and will NEVER turn down a glass of wine … no matter what time. So for her Birthday her closest friends, Sisters, Mom, Dad and Team Jilly have taken over the blog to tell her how much we love her …

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MINDY!!!

Most people don’t know we’ve known each other since we were little girls. We grew up in the same small small town and even though we didn’t keep in touch, after 25+ years we made our way back to each other and I couldn’t be HAPPIER with the way it all turned out. We ABSOLUTELY LOVE you. You have a heart of gold, you are open minded, fun, dedicated, open to any adventure and one of the most genuine people I know.  But what I love most, you totally ‘get me’, we have the same sick “Peace River” sense of humour  (thank god! LOL) and most importantly you LOVE our little Leo and Nacho SO much. THANK YOU.  I could go on and on… but there’s a very handsome fella here that is pacing back and forth begging for the computer… so I have to hand it over.

XOXO JILLY

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MINDY!!! WE LOVE YOU!

… FINALLY She’s been sitting at that computer all morning. ITS NOT THAT HARD TO TYPE MOM. HI MINDY.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY. MY Birthday was yesterday but everyone forgot. OH well. BOL (Barking out loud)  … I know I’m a dog and you’re a human but if I was 30 years older, farted less and had 2 legs YOU would be in trouble gurrrrlllll.  Thank you for coming to hang out with me when my parents go TRAVELING ALL OVER THE WORLD WITHOUT ME. ITs nice to know SOMEBODY cares.  And I know you were a bit nervous about wrestling with me at first but you are VERY good at it. Thank you for taking me for hikes and snuggling with me on the couch. Sometimes I get so excited to see you I throw up. Sorry about that but I hope you take it as a compliment… I mean HOW MANY other guys throw up with excitement when they see you. … ya thats what I thought. Anyway, I love you Aunty Mindy I hope you have the BEST birthday (if you have any sausage at Quails Gate you know where to bring the left overs… wink wink..)

PS I like your hair down, thats why i’m always trying to take out your pony tail.

It shocks me that I’ve only known this sweet soul for just over a year. You have been not only a great addition to Team Jilly but also as a great drinking companion, volleyball partner, and friend. You always know how to have a good time and can make light of any situation, which I SO admire. You are kind, generous, and beautiful inside and out. Hoping you have the BEST Birthday and year ahead … I can’t wait to see what’s in-store. LOVE YOU XOXO SHAY

You’d be hard pressed to come across a kinder, more easy going, fun-loving person than Mindy. Her laugh is amongst her most endearing qualities, but what truly makes her special is her heart of gold. Mindy, you make our team THAT much better — your hard work and ambition is truly admirable, and your eagerness to drink wine at any time of the day is something I hope never changes. We love you!!! – Mackenzie

Wishing you tons of sunshine, a wisp of rain, a bit of wine, loads of fun and someone to love!!! Happy Birthday & lots of love! – Mom, Dad and sista’s

Happiest of birthdays to one of the most inspiring, beautiful, talented and selfless people I know… I hope today you will know how dang special you are Mindy Lu, and you feel like the queen you are — you have accomplished so much and I’m so proud of you. Thank you for always putting a smile on my face and having my back no matter what!! You truly are the grapes to my wine, the Brie on my crackers, and the frosting to my cupcake. I love you! – Jodie

Happy birthday to the beautiful, driven, inspiring, hilarious, kind, margarita-drinking, cheese-loving Mindy Crawford. Wishing you a day filled with family, friends, good wine and lots of laughs. – Jen

Mindy – your smile, your laugh , your sense of humor and your stunning good looks are just a few things that make you stand out. We are all so lucky to have you in our lives. You make everything better! We love you, and wish you the happiest of birthdays! – Leah

Wishing my dearest friend Mindy the happiest of birthdays! Mindy is kind, caring, funny, thoughtful and of course the most beautiful! She is an amazing friend and is always down for anything! My true ride or die. Love yah to bits Mindy!! Hope you have the best day ever, you deserve it!! – Kalyn

WE LOVE YOU MINDY!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY

    Your home is absolutely stunning from what I’ve seen on your blog; clean and open space filled with elegant furniture & cabinetry that invites family & friend gatherings. As well looks like it’s easy to clean. ❤️ Your home. Thank you for sharing.
