21: Nat- Congrats, I'm am so blessed to have you in my life. And even though we don't see each other or talk on a normal basis, everytime we do its just like old times. I have to laugh to myself when I was putting this book together. We have so many pictures of us when we were younger, a few others and then we jump about 10 years to a few more. But we have had some great times over the year and there are many, many more to come. I'm so excited for you in this next stage in your life and I'm honored to be a part of it. Have fun and anytime you want to come back to the midwest and head a few hours north, I have an extra bedroom for you guys. South Dakota isn't a horrbile place yet, just don't come in the winter. Love you, Ash
