I have a teenager?!?

My baby (she detests being called that, by the way) is thirteen today.
I used the City Sidewalks collection by Pink Paislee, and several Chic Tags to capture the memory.

  We took these photos last week at Starbucks, it was a little treat after the orthodontist, before heading back to school for the day.  I can't believe that what was once only a dream is now a living, breathing, spunky, diligent, and hard working, mouthy at times, fashionable, kind, and loving (when she wants to be) young woman of mine.  I am blessed, and I thank God everyday for the privilege of raising her.

Journaling reads: "How often I heard 'cherish it, it goes by quickly'.  When you were little I didn't really believe it.  I can still remember bringing you home - so tiny and perfect.  Look at you now.  Growing into a beautiful young lady.  Be still my heart."

Happy 13th Birthday to my beautiful girl!
