Today is my niece Nastassia's 17th birthday. I remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. It makes me feel old. She was born the summer I graduated from high school, and this year she is going to be a senior. Wow, time flies!
Nats is such a wonderful young lady. She has gone through some stuff in her life that could have easily made her bitter and play the victim, but she has risen above and is working hard to make a wonderful life for herself. She is everything I would want if I had a daughter. She makes me proud to be her Aunt.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATTY! I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!
