Double Digits

Ten years ago today I gave birth to my Julia! I remember it like it was yesterday! She came into this world with her head held up high looking around all wide eyed. She was tenacious and alert. She was very happy and funny as a baby! One thing that has never changed is her unique way of always going against mainstream! She is no typical girl and for that I admire her and value her.
