happy birthday Lolo!

When my Lauren Elizabeth was born, her sister Rachel was only 16 months old. She couldn't properly say Lauren's name, and called her "Lolo" instead. It suited that sweet baby girl perfectly, and the name took.

We still call her Lolo. She's no longer a chubby little girl who loves chocolate and climbing on top of the fridge. Now she's a young wife, an excellent student on her way to becoming an incredible nurse. (She still loves chocolate, but as far as I know she no longer perches on major appliances.)

Lauren turned 21 on Saturday. We celebrated with a lovely dinner at Ciao, a fun limo ride and a bit of "clubbing." I'm so blessed to have daughters like mine, who want their mama to celebrate with them!

Love ya Lowell! I'm so proud of you I can hardly stand it

What a beautiful post! And yep, it's great your girls still want to hang with their Mom. I love that picture of the two of you - you're both gorgeous!

Happy birthday Lauren! Hugs and prayers from OH!

When your 21 year old thinks it's cool to go clubbing with mom on her 21st birthday you know you have done something right!!

Happy Birthday Lauren!
