Happy sweet 16 to this incredible girl who makes me proud every day. I can’t believe how time has flown and what an amazing young woman you are growing into. You surprise me all the time with your sweetness and your wit and your grace. Some days I long to turn back the clock and have back the little chubby-cheeked baby that you were, but that would be robbing myself of knowing you as you are now, and that would be a shame. I am so happy to be able to call you my sister, and I hope that this day – and year, and the rest of your life – is filled with all of the sweet wonder and love that you deserve.
Love you to the moon and back.
