Happy Birthday Shay Shay!

If you watch my Instagram stories, or follow closely here… you’ll notice a blonde hair, long-legged beauty from time to time.  That’s Shay. About 4 years ago, I was looking for someone to help me with the blog and I ended up getting so much more and hitting the “employee” lottery. (Thank you, Cam!)

Shay, you already know you are such an important part of this business. A big reason why this blog is so successful, or even really exists … is because of your determination, your hard work, your talent, your long nights, weekends, attention to detail and perfectionism.  Every day I’m grateful for you, for being SUCH a foundation of this business and caring SO much about me, my family, my heart, and wellbeing, this, is not a part of the job but you make it a priority anyway … thank you. Because of you, I’m able to be more creative, spend more time with my family, go to sleep a little earlier, have a little peace of mind knowing I have someone like you on my team.

And now, because we’ve got this steady rhythm over the last few years, we’ve been able to recently grow our team, who I LOVE SO much … I am SO SO proud of what we’ve accomplished and I can’t thank you enough for taking the risk that one day in Whole Foods, and jumping on board to a job … that had no real description.

Here’s to YOUR birthday, here’s to YOU, your success, and your beautiful little family, (Moose is the most perfect firstborn) your long legs, blonde hair, love of watermelons, great style, here’s to your friendship, being a beautiful daughter to mama Jane, a patient loving girlfriend to Cam, a wonderful stylist, cook, expert shopper, adventurer & just a WONDERFUL human being.

I LOVE YOU SHAY!!!!

Happiest of Birthdays to my wonderful daughter Shay Shay … I admire so much about you and the woman you have become. My little girl who used to pirouette through the house is now dancing her way through life with confidence, courage, strength, love, and wisdom for such a young woman.  I could not be more proud of you on your 27th birthday … my heart BEAMS with love and pride Shay. Cheers to you beautiful Girl! – xoxo LOVE MOM

Shay Birthday

Happy Birthday, Shay! Shay, you have to be one of the most gorgeous people alive, inside and out!  Seriously, you have a heart of gold, you’re intelligent, stunning, and have ridiculously good taste…you’re just a total class act, my friend.  The world is your oyster. – Love you! – Tori xx

Shay Birthday

Shay … oh my goodness … where does one begin? I’ve only known Shay for just over a year now but my, it’s been a wild ride! Shay has taught me everything there is to know when it comes to being a part of Team Jilly, from the world of blogging (and all of the craziness that goes along with it), to styling photo shoots, to early morning makeup lessons, and of course, it wouldn’t be Shay, if she didn’t give you a fashion lesson or two (or TEN!) … let’s just say, I’m a work in progress. Shay, thank you for being you, for showing me the way, for being my sounding board, for the good times, for the frantic times, for the laugh your ass off until you cry times, you are one amazing woman and I’m so happy to have met you and honored to work alongside you on the daily. Love you, boyfriend. (It’s an inside joke … I’m not taking Cam’s place … haha!). – XOXO Mindy

Shay BirthdayShay Birthday

If you’ve met Shay you know that she is one of THE most strikingly beautiful people on planet earth. What was even more surprising to me when I first met her was that her beauty doesn’t just run skin deep … She is caring, compassionate and so very funny. Not only is she incredibly hard working.. but she makes everything she does seem completely effortless, and moves through life with so much grace and STYLE. She inspires me in so many ways and I’m truly honoured and grateful to not only get to work alongside her but to call her a friend. I hope she never gets tired of me asking where her clothes are from. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHAY SHAY!!!!!Mackenzie

    Shay is so beautiful! Will she ever share what hair products she uses to keep her hair such a perfect shade of blonde!?

  2. Amanda Savage says:

    Happy Birthday Shay!!!
    It was such an honour to meet you this year! I hope you have the best bday and get spoiled rotten by your guys! xo

  3. Wendy Taylor says:

    Really sweet tribute! Good on all of you 🙂

  4. Kat says:

    I love that you openly celebrate your friends/employees here so authentically. I really don’t see people in any other blog space take the time to write more than a single line for a birthday or even introduce the rest of their staff and people behind the scenes. What a beautiful group of women! 🙂 Happy Birthday!

  5. Susan says:

    Happy Birthday Shay, Don’t you who you are but would vouch to shake hand and wish you a heart felt birthday wish. May you celebrate many more birthdays like this. Stay blessed.
