My beautiful daughter, today you turn 17! It's hard to believe this is your last year as a child, but never forget that no matter how old you get, you will always be my baby girl. I am so lucky to be your mom. You have grown from an awesome kid into an amazing young woman and one of my closest friends. I cherish our time together and enjoy hanging out with you, even when you talk about things I don't understand. HA! I am looking forward to walking through this next year with you. So many exciting things are coming up and I know you have a bright future ahead! Always remember that I am here to listen... to laugh with you, to cry with you, to talk baseball with you, and to give you advice, when and if you need it.
I hope you have a great birthday, Kass!! I can't wait to celebrate with you.
