Happy 18th Birthday

I know this is going to erase the cool code. However, I just wanted to say how proud I am of you.

My little girl.

There are four things that I have done right in my life. I met your father, and had you and your sisters. 18 is a scary number for me because even though you are 18 , you will always be my little ice cream seeker.

18 doesn’t mean I will love you any less. It doesn’t mean I will stop being there to give you my opinion. It means I will have to trust your judgement and trust that I have given you what you need to be a good woman. I love you and welcome to the next phase.
