Don't Blink

My "baby" turned 20 yesterday.  I'm not sure when or how that bubbly little girl turned into an adult, but she did.  I can no longer say I have three teenage daughters. I now have two teenage daughters and one young adult. Sarah has, in many ways, been such a delight to raise. She has always been curious, eager to learn, a good student, self-motivated and driven to succeed. She has a kind heart and a generous spirit. She can also be a bit of a drama queen and tends to live her life convinced that Murphy's Law applies more strongly to her than to anyone else in the Universe. But that is part of what makes Sarah who she is. To say I love this girl beyond all compare is an understatement. I couldn't be more proud of the young woman Sarah has become.

I love the layout. I know how it feels. My youngest just turned 18 and graduated high school. My oldest is 24 and my daughter is 22.

The time does go by so quickly.

Cheri, I love the faded out photos/design of this layout, and I'm so right there with the whole, 'where did time go?'! My fault for some of it, though, as I purposefully wished some of that time away. *sigh*

I love how you've faded out the intermediate photos but left the first and last strong - great title, too :-) And oh, what a beautiful post Cheri! Happy birthday to your Sarah xx

A beautiful layout for a beautiful girl! I'm sure she had a great day. It's hard to fathom where the time goes. My daughter will be 30 this summer.

She's lovely inside and out, and the time went even faster for me. How did two of my grandchildren already reach their 20's? I remember all those adorable photos. Wasn't that just yesterday?
