Happy birthday, my sweet Audrey girl! I just finished writing you a nice long letter in the Letters to Audrey journal (from last night: "You're going to write in it tomorrow since it's my birthday, right Mom?"), telling you all kinds of things about my hopes and dreams for you this next year, what I love about you, and such.
I have no idea if you've read any of the letters already in there. They are written to you, so it's fine if you have, though I have this idea of giving you the book when you graduate from high school, or maybe when you get married, or maybe someday when you have a baby.
(Okay, that's weird. And now I feel a little freaked out. Let's get back to you being 12, which suddenly doesn't seem so old after thinking about you being 25.)
Anyway, pretty cool that your birthday all lines up today, huh? 8.9.10 and you're not 11 but 12!
I love you!
