It’s Thursday already. Wow this week is flying by! Today is my baby cousin’s birthday. She’s making me old. Hard to believe that she’ll graduate in a few short months. I still remember her in her little blue overalls and all her hats. I remember getting to hold her while sitting on the little blue couch at Grandma’s. I remember her falling asleep in my arms and being scared to move because I didn’t want to wake her up. I remember the silly little girl with the watermelon in her tummy, the kid with whom I played countless hours of school, cooking on the back deck, and hunting easter eggs, and the sweet shy teenager who was easily embarrassed by her kooky family. It’s hard to believe she’s grown into such an amazing woman. I’m so proud of her and am tearing up just writing this. Rachel, you’re such a smart, independent, talented, beautiful woman. And today I’m thankful for being able to grow up with you. Happy Birthday!
