It's my beautiful sister-in-law's 18th birthday today.

I am in awe of her.

She is beautiful.

She is smart.

She is sweet.

She is kind.

She is a teenager during a time when it's very difficult to be a teenager and yet she is handles so much with grace.

She is only 18 and she has so much to look forward to.

Happiest of happy birthdays, Ms. Allie.  I am so honored to know you and cannot wait to celebrate you this evening.
