March 16! The Maven's Birthday!
Her 24th Birthday!
Here she is in her LA-cool mode with her kitties, Darcy and Dexter:
This is how I remember her:
Swimming at G-ma's
Schooling her dad in basketball
High School Homecoming
Her Favorite picture of us, for some reason. LOL
18th birthday in NYC
Walking her to the dorm at college
Showing Orlando Grandma LA and The Getty
What an incredible life she has had thus far.
She has felt the full range of what it means to be an adult who has overcome obstacles thrown in her way.
And excelled in spite of them!
Her strength, determination and positive, sunny outlook inspire me everyday.
I love you, my Maven.
Happy Birthday from your slightly off-kilter mom.
We hope to spend a slightly less than raucous b-day here at Boston Manor. The Writer, Sammy and Cousin Chad from Australia will drive up here to "the hills" to celebrate The Maven's bday as well as a belated nod to CC (Cousin Chad) who's birthday was the 9th.
If the noise keeps you awake, sorry...
