Hi Friends! Sorry that I haven't been in touch for awhile. It seems that the past two weeks have come and gone and I lost track of time.
Isn't it strange that time doesn't always pass at the same speed? Like when you were a co-ed and sitting through a lecture on the curve of a hyperbole and its inverse function; every second passed in excruciating fashion. Or when you were a kid sitting in the 5th pew (for 18 years) and had already read the entire bulletin, all of the readings in the Missilette, and every stained glass window but somehow it still wasn't time for Communion yet. We won't even touch on the fact that the month of June is the longest18 days of the school year.
Then there are times when it seems that the earth spins a bit faster and we can hardly remember how the minutes passed so quickly. You are on the massage table and close your eyes only to hear the therapist say, "Take your time getting ready, and remember to hydrate." Already? Or you are on the bumper cars at the amusement park and just when you are ready to really ram that annoying boy, out of juice. Darn! And we have all stepped off the plane in ecstatic anticipation of that island vacation when suddenly we having repacking our suitcase and enjoying our last mango for breakfast. Say it isn't Friday already...
I can't believe how time flies. Somehow a year ago I gave birth to my daughter and in a nanosecond she started to smile, talk, crawl, hug, kiss, and take control of our house. For the past two weeks we have been celebrating our little miracle with friends and family; cake and mac-n-cheese; a bounce house and cotton candy machine; Hoffman's; Hair of the Dog; and lots of cheer.
Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
