Claire Elizabeth is 14

Yesterday my post didn't publish for some reason--that was a bummer.  
My intentions were to post an update about Beauty Rises.  
I will post it on Monday instead.  Look for that then.

But today, TODAY my first born turns 14.  FOURTEEN!
Can you believe that?  Neither can I!!!!!

Claire is one of a kind.  She is the perfect mix of Snow White 
(calm, kind, good with people and animals), and part 
Belle (smart, creative and steady). 
She likes when I tell her that because she likes princesses.
She has always loved this quote from the classic book:

"I am a princess.
All girls are.
Even if they live in tiny old attics.
Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty,
or smart, or young.
They're still princesses."

You my dear 14 year old Claire Elizabeth, are my princess. 
Happy Birthday sweet Toad.
