Shout Out to Jessica Johnson

It's not Jessica's birthday, but she deserves a special shout out. We sadly bid farewell to Jess as she begins a new adventure in the Bay Area. And what better way to celebrate than with a barbecue in 95-degree heat and humidity? We had a great turn-out--so many people love Jessica.
Marni wins the Champion prize for manning the grill in the extreme heat.

These are the things that I have come to love about Jessica Kaye Johnson:
  • Her classy style and way of raising the bar, with fashion, food, conversation, and activity.
  • Her love of sports and her season tickets to the Nationals. She knows everything about BYU football and is so in the know in every other sport.
  • Her world-wide travel--recent adventures in Turkey, China, India, England, Thailand.
  • Pool talk, walk talk, movies, dinner, shopping, body pump... you name it, we did it.
  • Her desire to do the right thing and to be a genuinely good person.
Jess has been a grand tender mercy in my life, and I can't wait to visit her in the Bay Area! You go, girl!

Love Jessica! She is one of my favorite JJs and will be soooo very missed on the east coast...though I am so excited to visit her in my favorite state!

Miss you already! Thanks for the shout out. Sad to know there won't be a JR waiting for me in the Bay Area...but glad we'll keep in touch.
