Dear Emma Kay

Dear Emma,

Today you turn 16 years old and we simply adore you.  You bring so much love and laughter to our lives.  You are the one who made us parents and the one who has to ride out all our firsts and all our mistakes.  You are full of kindness with just a pinch of sass 😉.  The silly relationship you have teasing dad and the fun ways we get to bond as mother and daughter over coffee, shopping and Netflix just make me smile.

Thank you for always being flexible.

Thank you for always forgiving.

Thank you for putting others above yourself.

Thank you for the incredible gift of being your parents.

We love you and are incredibly proud of the woman you are becoming.

Happy Sweet 16, gorgeous girl.  Never forget how much you are loved.
