Emily...you have challenged me in so many ways, and you've been a rock of comfort too and you've had me laughing so hard I cried. I love you for that babe! and so much more too. We've had some great memories together.
Your strength and wanna canna do it attitude amazes me some days. But I know too how scared you are. But I want you to always know you have it in you to do whatever you want in life. Your courage screams some days (every time you ride that board of yours!!) and I've had to plug my ears and keep my fingers crossed...but I know you will do just fine.
I love you more today than I did yesterday and I am curious to see the woman you're becoming...a strong, independent, loving and caring person. Chase your dreams babe and make them your reality. (I hope this picture reminds you of that).
Love you forever, like you for always xo as long as I'm living my baby you'll be.
