Happy 21st to my beautiful goddaughter!

It's just like you to be spending your 21st birthday on the other side of the world in Australia! You grab life with both hands, analyze it fiercely and with heart, then write about it brilliantly, bravely, always from a place of love. I know you're having a blast Down Under, and we'll celebrate you again when you return stateside this summer. And come Thanksgiving, I guess you'll be at the margarita table! You have no idea how deeply gratifying it is to know the next generation of cousins is coming of age with the same close bonds your mothers have always shared. Keep living the adventure, Dani. You make us all so proud.

  2. Like everyone in your family, she is gorgeous. And it would appear to me that she has inherited a bit of the writing gene from her godmother. I see great things for this woman!

    1. Ms. Moon, this one has had her eye set on being a journalist from the time she was little. We could always count on her to report when the kids shennanigans were verging on dangerous. We called her the reporter.
