Some Stats.

USTA Sectionals came and went.
I had such a great time in Portland with my team.
We made it all the way to the final...
but lost.

I was a little surprised at how disappointed I felt.
Probably because I could taste the win right around the corner.

If we had won, we would have gone to
Tuscon, AZ for Nationals.

But as always I learned a lot.
And I promise you...I had the time of my life.

I can't believe how much fun I had playing each match.
In the past, I have had major issues with nerves.
I guess it gets easier the more seasoned you get.

And I can honestly tell you...
EACH match was a blast to play.
And my partner is just so fun to play with.
And the whole team was fun to hang with.
And Lululemon was fun to shop at.
And my coach was the best supporter.
And my friends made me laugh till my eyes teared.
And I am gullible because I believe everything Janelle says.
And I found I love flatbread pizza enormously.
And tennis rocks for so many reasons.
I love it.
I love it.
I love it.

I'm going to leave you with some stats, my stats.
And I will mention that Elece & I were undefeated.
I am proud of that accomplishment.
I hope that's okay.
To be proud I mean.

Good job, Shelli! I'm proud of you. Isn't it fun to have a passion and be able to do it? I love reading about my "famous" tennis cousin. Keep up the great work.

Oh Shelli, I'm so proud of you. You are so beautiful inside and out and I love that you have passion in your life!

Haha! I just glanced at the other comments...passion is appreciated by those who have it in them!

Love you, Sis! Keep reaching and grab all the joy you can!
