Today is a special day. It's our daughter's birthday and is also my best friend, Eri's, birthday too. (If you leave a comment, please remember that we don't say our daughter's name on the blog. Notice her face is covered in the picture too. It's a privacy/protection thing for her.)
Today is our daughter's 13th birthday. She's a teenager; it's official. I feel so damn old! We took her to Olive Garden (her choice) and shopping for clothes. She got really lucky - today and tomorrow she has off of school for Fall Break.
And then there's Eri. She has the patience of a saint, the laughter of an angel, and the beauty of a goddess. She's the best friend I've ever had and if our daughter acts like Eri when she grows up, I'd be the happiest father in existence.
As most of you know, Eri is the "middle" part of Bil-Eri-Co. Our daughter is the middle of my soul. Together, it was a special day for two very powerful women in my life. Happy Birthday to both of you - and may you have many, many, many more.
