My sister Lauren turns 21 today - she reminds me so much of myself because of her determination and self-discipline, and out of my three siblings I think we look the most alike:
In fact years ago she returned to my high school, Columbus School for Girls, to play against their basketball team and one of my old teachers nearly jumped out of their skin thinking I had returned as a student again! (Not that I was a terror or anything!)
When I see Lauren I still think of her as she was when she was a baby - to me she still has her babyface! I have to remember now that she's legal and yes, this makes me feel so old.

Lauren's heading to NYC with my brother and her friend later tonight, and I'm excited to see her tomorrow when she'll come over to visit and watch Nia with my other sister Ariane and brother Michael while Uka and I go on a date (thank you in advance Lauren!).
Lauren's currently a junior at Anderson University in South Carolina where she does field events. She's extremely talented and humble about it. My family and I have to press her for details on how she does and it's always, "Oh, I PR-ed" or "I set a school record last week." Ummm, hello?! I'd be shouting it from the rooftop if it were me. LOL!

I'm so excited to see what the future holds for her.
Happy Birthday Lauren (or "Boo" as I still call her!).
