Oh, and by the way, honey- in case you're interested someday, this is a picture of mama when she was 18 and living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I had not seen it before the other day when an old dear friend sent it to me. This is what your mama looks like without all those silly tattoos. But you know whats cool? I remember the moment that this picture was taken- I was sitting on a balcony in Mexico City writing in my journal and it was starting to rain. I can even show you exactly what I was writing because I still have this journal. But the cool thing is that as I was sitting there, unbeknownst to me at the time, I had a little unhatched egg in my young ovary that was YOU. Crazy, hu? I love that I have been carrying you with me for this long.
