How is this possible?

Yesterday, my beautiful oldest child, Leigh Anne, turned 21! Seriously? 21? I'm not sure how that happened. And, I suppose now I have to quit telling everyone I am 29. It just doesn't add up! I love her snazzy haircut & can't wait to see her in person in a couple of weeks. Now that she has a life of her own, we don't get much time to just hang out! And I really love the person she is becoming. So confident, hard working & practical. Wow!

I just realized that my first blog post here, almost 3 years ago, was about sending my baby off to college. Now she is a senior (one more semester to go), an experienced journalist (copy editor for the Arizona Republic), has her own apartment and makes me totally proud to be her mom!

Happy Birthday Leigh Anne! I love you.
