Today is ReaRea's birthday, how is it that twelve years can simply sift through your fingers just like sand at the beach? I've struggled all day yesterday and today with what to say about Rea, how to capture her personality in a brief way - to convey her complexities and how special she is to us, but I just don't think I can. And frankly, I think she's probably like the kid next door; or your kid. She's pretty fabulous - to us. But so is yours, so enough said.
We love her heart and soul. Warts, toads and beautiful blue eyes. Wicked laugh. Every last inch.
However, I couldn't resist a little walk down memory lane...here are a few of my VERY favorite pictures of Rea.
