It’s Lauren’s birthday today, and now even in the US she is allowed to have a glass of champagne to celebrate.
That’s what she asked for. And really, she deserves it.
She’s doing well in college. She’s got plans and ambitions. She surrounds herself with good people. She’s fun to hang out with. What more could a parent hope for?
She had her birthday party on Friday last week over at Main Campus University so tonight will likely be a little quieter, though it is Halloween on a college campus there so probably not that much quieter. You never know. I suppose we’ll hear the stories, or at least some of them.
We’re in Our Little Town, passing out candy to the younger kids trick-or-treating at our door and wishing her well from here.
Happy birthday, Lauren.
I’m proud of you.
