18 candles burn bright on one peanut butter & chocolate cake today.
18 times around the sun.
from FL to PA to ME you have traveled.
from 19 inches long to 5 foot 10 inches tall you have grown.
and all along the way i have loved you.
whatever your wishes are dear girl, may they all come true.
so wish good, wish big, wish true and blow....

taylor, the calendar may say you are 18 years old today, but you are forever my little girl.

she really was little, once upon a time. by kristin~mainemomma

mom

This is an absolutely wonderful post!! Your words for your daughter are beautiful!! I have an 18 year old son who is graduating from high school in a couple of weeks so I believe I can relate to all the thoughts that are circling around in your head right now ~ happy that they're getting ready to take on the world but sad that they're straying farther from the nest. God bless and happy birthday to your baby girl. : )
