Today my daughter turned 10, so I feel like I get to brag on her a bit. She deserves it! Juliet is an adventurer, a prolific creator, a straight-A student, and a kind and thoughtful daughter/sister/friend. It’s late at night and I’m running out of words, so let me show you in photos why I love this little girl so much.
I love this photo of Juliet on a ferry to Orcas Island because it captures her zest for travel and adventure—she is always up for anything and finds as much pleasure in packing for a trip as I do!
I love this photo of her in the front row of my Portland Borders reading/signing because of how proud and happy she looks. She has been one of my biggest supporters!
I love that dragonflies and butterflies always land on Juliet, and then have a hard time flying away. She has an intrinsic flowery scent that these beauties love.
I love that she genuinely adores her little brother and she’s not too cool to play with him when he gets crazy.
I love that she can enjoy quiet moments, like sitting on the porch with tea.
But most of all, I love her because she is all mine.
How lucky I am to have caught this soul in my belly ten years ago!
