Happy Birthday, Tilly!!

My oldest daughter, Lauren Tillman, turns 12 today at 11:12 a.m. Can it really have been that long ago? All I know is that she grows smarter, more self-sufficient and more beautiful (both inside and out) with every passing day. I'm so grateful to have been entrusted with the responsibility and privilege of being her mother. These last 12 years have passed so joyfully - I can't wait to see what the future holds for her!!

"When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice."
