Ashley celebrated her 21st birthday on December 4th!  Considering I ‘adopted’ her when she was a wee lass of fourteen the two of us have been waiting for this day for quite sometime.  Staying true to our sister tradition we met for an early dinner at our restaurant of choice so I could treat her to a glass of wine and appetizers.  Z came too, having just been released from the hospital.  The ability to blend family, best friends, and my soul mate brings joy to my heart.

Would we go anywhere but Olive Garden?

Ashley:  I am so proud of you and all that you’ve done in a little over two decades.  You’re a smart, witty, and compassionate young woman and I know you will accomplish all your goals. What an honor it is to be your big sister– there’s nobody else I would want in the hospital with me for both of my children’s birth or to be a bridesmaid in my wedding.  I love you.  Continue to do what I say and not what I do and you’ll be just fine.  😉

About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
