Anne Marie is twenty-two years old today! When she was
a baby I used to put this 'towel' (cloth diaper) under her face
when she slept because it was softer than her bed covering.
She 'attached' to it, and to this day she sleeps with it folded
up rectangularly and placed across her forehead and eyes!
I've never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful.
Anne Marie has always had her very own sense
of style! Don't have double pierces in your ears?
No worries...two pair of clip-ons will do!
(Notice the color of her dress. The
love for purple began early.)
You were born an original.
Don't die a copy.
Enlarge the photo to see all of the scrunchies
she had in one long single ponytail on top, along
with the red plastic flower sticking up behind that!
What a hoot!
She has always been a loyal sister.
To her Chaser Bear...
To her Callie Boo...
And, to 'Brumsy.' (Ty)
is a better place...
because she is in it.
Her caring and compassion
are felt wherever she goes.
Though we travel the world over to
find the beautiful, we must carry
it with us or we find it not.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
To our daughter who sees life's
beauty on a daily basis...
Happy Happy Birthday,
