This kid of mine arrived right on time twenty-one years ago on December 23, 1998.

Since then, we have been on a series of adventures with her that seem unbelievable in hindsight.

We’re celebrating this milestone birthday in Las Vegas which is a great improvement over the one we had for her at age three that ended up at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

College in Ohio was where her soaring really began. Studying abroad in 2018 in Seoul laid the groundwork for an even longer and more extensive overseas study and internship in Florence.

In just a few short weeks, she’ll be off to New York for her second to last semester of university life along with an internship for a storied fashion brand.

Every day is another chapter of this story. I’m lucky enough to get the first draft.

Happy birthday Julia Kennedy.
