tomorrow, my sweet girl turns 23. this is mia at her first birthday party. the idea that she has graced my life for over two decades leaves me in awe. it all goes so fast. gone are the days when she was so delighted with a simple toy. her life is now complex and full; she is fearless and quirky and fragile all at the same time. so real is the memory of wrapping my arms around her and her little body automatically melding into mine. I love watching her evolve.
I'm off on a roadtrip to philadelphia for a long weekend with krista. see you on monday.
