Emily Elizabeth - Yesterday and Today

Emily's 19th birthday was May 5th.  She was our 5th grandchild and 2nd granddaughter.
She was born in Evansville, Indiana and is an important part of this large family.
 And an even more important part of this smaller family.
I wrote about Emily in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.  Those posts tell you a lot about Emily and how she's changed through the years.
And the following pictures will SHOW you how she her appearance has changed through the years.

So now I'm going to talk about what Emily's been up to in the past year.  First of all, almost exactly a year ago, she graduated from high school.
And along with that graduation came her first car - a gift from her dad.
During the ensuing summer, she made a decision to attend IUSB (Indiana University of South Bend) in the Fall.   Her first courses in Geology prompted an unexpected love for the subject so she applied at three different schools to pursue that course of study.  She was accepted to all three probably because she had made the first semester Dean's List at IUSB.
She ultimately chose Grand Valley State University in Michigan because it seemed like the perfect fit for her.  She's already found roommates and will be living in an apartment next year which she's very excited about.
During the past year she has worked at Olive Garden which is where she met Evan.  They've been in a relationship for about 4 months now and have done "a lot of cool things together which has been awesome".
So you can see that Emily's been a busy girl and will continue to be a busy girl moving forward.  But some things about Emily haven't changed and I'm sure will never change.  She's a real family girl - close to her mom and stepdad
and her two brothers.
And her Dad's side of the family as well.  She still has a great sense of style which started when she was very young.

She's always been sweet, loving, and fun which continues to this very day.
And of course, as always, she's smart, conscientious, cheerful, level-headed and beautiful!  For these reasons and so many others, we're proud and happy that she's our granddaughter and wishing her a coming year filled with every success and much happiness.  Happy Birthday, Emily, a little late but very heartfelt!  We're so proud of you!
