mlstella Who knew you could birth a best friend? It is staggering to me to admit that you are 17. You KNOW I held on to 16 as long as I could and I don’t think that’s what John Cougar Mellencamp meant but I did. You are my first born and a precious work of art.. If I do say so myself! I’ve never been prouder of anything in my life and can’t wait to see what this world becomes when you change it. We all know you will. Love you more than those ice storms at the mall, every 80’s song or movie, even more than goodwill. Happy Birthday my lovely Lennon. Now continue on being extraordinary! ❤️🎈🎉🎈❤️
