Special, personal day for me

Twenty-seven years ago today, we became parents. Our Emily was born in Baltimore, at The Johns Hopkins Hospital (where Mark worked), on a sunny day. She has continued to bring sunshine, smiles, and unconditional love into my heart and my life.

She loves dinosaurs and all living animals, cool art, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, and her families (ours and her sweetie’s).

Emily is smart and talented and oh-so-sweet. The world is a better place because she’s in it.

The song I sang to her is this: “Emily Paige, so cute, so fair. You’re the girl with all that red hair!”

On this, her 27th birthday, I wish her ALL the best.  I am proud of the young woman she has become and proud of myself for raising her the best I could, of course, with her Dad.

Cheers to all!

Stay well. Stay curious. Have FUN every day!!

I adore my family and friends, meeting new people, travel, food (Gluten-Free please), and belly-laughing. My mantra is "HAVE FUN EVERY DAY." I've lived in five US states and two foreign countries. I am grateful, blessed, and adventurous. I like to do NDBs (never done before.) I enjoy sharing my creative and crazy Empty Nester life and inspiring others to have FUN thus staying young.
