The Birthday Girl!

Laurel is now out of her teen years and into the roaring twenties. Saturday was her birthday and we(the family) were out of town to a wedding so we didn't celebrate the traditional way with a song and candles on the cake. But last night we made up for it with friends and family over to help celebrate with two yummy cakes and homemade ice cream!


Laurel is a peacemaker and always cheerful. She will be the first one to make things right and change an undisireable situation around to something more uplifting. She loves music, singing, art, sleeping in, thrift stores, get togethers with her friends, her family, watching movies-old and new, taking pictures, quotes, journals, and traveling. She is also kind hearted, looks for the positve, and is gentle in her nature. We love you Laurel and will miss you when you go back to school.
Happy 20th Birthday!

She sounds like a great person to hang out with. You must really enjoy her company when she's at home.

By the way, is the header photo a view from your kitchen? It's beautiful.

This is off topic for sure but I LOVE that picture on your header. Love, love, love it!

And of course, happy BD to Laurel!

Happy Birthday Laurel!!! You are still a household name with my girls. You are wonderful. And to be "off topic" as well, the header picture is one of the best yet. You really have photographer inside you!!!

Oh my, look at that rainbow! Very nice photo.

Happy Birthday to Laurel! Celebrating in the new house, to boot.

(OK, the Virginia question, Marilee: sorry but VA is about 450 miles from Boston. It's a drive. You could STILL swing an East Coast tour--it would be awesome! :) )

I remember meeting Laurel when she was a new teen (about 7 yrs ago?) and was amazed at her sweet maturity. She has aged beautifully!

PS...I was also distracted by the "WOW" header.....
