Sept. 2nd, 1970something....

On this very day, some thirty years ago...a very special, kind, beautiful, loving, generous, intelligent, funny, bright and VERY MODEST person came to this earth. Isn't she sweet??? How can you not love her? Hard to believe she was just days old in this picture. Yes, days. She weighed in at 8 pounds 14 ounces. Ouch. That one hurt. Sad truth for mom, was she was the smallest of the three. She is the youngest. Remember that. She is the YOUNGEST!

She lived in her first home for 5 years. There was a lemon tree and apricot tree in the backyard. And yes, it really does look like popcorn! She ate apricots and lemons alike right from the tree. Yep, she can truly suck a lemon!
Are you loving the pixie cut?

When she was about to turn six, she and her family moved to the place where she would do the remainder of her growing up...well at least her chronological growing up. The final growing up has yet to be seen!

She loved to roller skate, ride bikes, draw, color, play barbies, climb trees, play in the mud. She had a particular talent for attracting dirt. She was often referred to as "Pigpen" It's okay, that one made her laugh. She was also known as "Peanut" and "Sunshine." She was never really a peanut, but that's okay...she was the YOUNGEST!
In high school she discovered two of her passions: acting and writing. Drama gave her a home. Writing gave her creative power.

Now that beauty is all grown--chronologically speaking. She is married with three beautiful children. She still loves to write, and given the chance, she would act. Well she does a kid! There have been many adventures over the past mmfmfmfmfmf years, and it will be interesting to see what happens in the next mfmfmfmfmfm years.

Happy Birthday to ME!
