Summertime: The Bucket List

Reelin' in the Years

Singing this one today . . . 


Dear Erin:

Nanny has told me that nothing makes you feel older . . . than your children growing older.  And (as always) she is right.

Today, as you turn 26, I'm feeling pretty old.  (Because how happen???)  But I'm also . . . reelin' in the years.

 Right from the start, you did your own thing!

Always curious.  Always enthusiastic.


You've had an incredible sense of who you were and what you wanted to do!

(Which didn't mean you took the easy route.)  

(Like ever.)  

(I still miss your music in the house, by the way.)

It's been wonderful to watch you . . . unfold.

Right before my eyes.

Can't wait to see what happens next.

Happy birthday, Erin!  You're making me feel pretty old today.  But that's a really wonderful thing!  I'll always be here . . . stowin' away the time!
