Happy 12th Birthday Elise!

Today is my niece Elise’s 12th birthday. I am not sure where the years have gone. I distinctly remember playing with her just yesterday and she was a baby. I was laying on my back holding her with my arms straight out and she, with her legs and arms stick straight, giggled as we played airplane.

She is now a young woman with her own sense of style, fashion and humor. She is serious and silly all at the same time. She is thoughtful, kind and concerned about how other people feel. She is quickly growing into a full fledged teenager. I don’t want her to grow up too soon.
She will always be my little princess.

Happy Birthday Elise. I love you – Aunt Terri
