The mama paparazzi has once again been thwarted.
I am forever trying to snap a photo of this beautiful young lady of ours….. and this is what every picture looks like. Hands up “Moooo-ooom!” She says to me, laughing.
She totally brings the sunshine with her in everything she does. Kind hearted, smiling and looking at the world as a glass half full. These days she can diffuse a fight between her younger siblings, cook a delicious meal and pound out a sweet 80’s rock song on the piano. She stands an inch taller than her mama (that makes two out of the four kids!) She shares mine & Joe’s music taste and makes some darn good playlists for our weekly road trips.
And today she left on her very first solo adventure. Three whole weeks in Minnesota visiting some wonderful friends of ours (and hers). She packed her own suitcase and paid for half her airfare and well, she’s just growing up. My mama heart flip flopped all morning until she called to let us know she had arrived safely. The happy excitement in her voice was like sweet honey to my soul.
Here’s to many wonderful adventures to come…
