21 Years Ago Today...

I became a first time mother and embarked upon a journey and an adventure that even today amazes, astounds, bemuses, confuses, delights, enchants, frustrates, and gratifies me! (yes, I could have kept going through the entire alphabet, but figured I'd spare you)


Not the most flattering photo of me, but that's what a new mother looks like with no makeup and after being awake for two days straight!


 And now Sarah is 21. Legal even in the U.S.A.  She is smart and funny and sweet - the BEST #1 kid a mother could ever ask or hope for. I am so proud to be her Mom!


All of Sarah's friends are away for the Summer and she is working today. So nobody around to take her out clubbing for her 21st and make insane memories. Not exactly the day she had hoped for... 


Happy Birthday Sarah! I hope your day turns out to be far more than you anticipated!

lol, you do look a little wiped out in that first picture, Cheri, but for the best possible reason! Hope Sarah has a great birthday, even though she has to work and can't go clubbing. I'm sure you'll make it wonderful for her somehow.

Been wondering where you were, Cheri. No posts in awhile. The best to Sarah for her birthday, and the best to you for the great job you & Jay did that produced this lovely young woman.

Happy birthday to your beautiful Sarah!

I was so happy to open my reader tonight and see you there; I was starting to get worried about you. Hope all is okay.

I remember the day my two oldest turned 21 it was so big for them. Have a great day Sarah.
