Happy birthday, Aly!
Don’t grow up too fast. Soak up every moment of every day so when your head hits the pillow you go straight to sleep because you’re exhausted from everything you’ve seen, heard, done, and experienced. Live life to the fullest.
You are beautiful and smart and funny and creative and compassionate and amazing and I could go on and on and on, but let me stop by saying this: I’m proud to be your Daddy and I’m proud of the young woman (or is it big girl?) God is shaping you to become.
I love you!
