It's This Kid's 21st Birthday

A lot of you have been around, reading the old blog for over a decade, so this may come as a surprise that my Henry is 21 years old today! He tells me that he went out to lunch with his gorgeous Annika and had his first legal drink. He also brought home a bottle of gin so that we could make Negronis before we go out to dinner tonight to celebrate. Lest you think alcohol is all we're doing today, he also announced that he'll be heading to the nearest cannabis dispensary.

Just kidding.



I've said it each year, and I'll say it again: Henry has been the light of my life since the moment the doctor pulled all ten pounds of him out of me. He is sweet and smart and beautiful, inside and out, and I love him.

Happy Birthday, Henry!


  1. NO WAY! But of course, it is definitely Henry's 21st birthday. As Henry's mother you would know. Mothers do not forget birthing ten pound babies.
    Good Lord, but that child has grown up to be a beautiful man. And he was a beautiful boy. I see your genes all in that face.
    Happiest of birthdays to Henry and to you, his mama I say- Good job!
    May all of the celebrations be as joyful and lovely as that gorgeous couple.

  2. Amazing! I can hardly believe that much time has passed. It's been a joy watching Henry grow and come into his own over these many years. It always makes me happy when we hear news of him and his progress through life, thanks for always including your loves in your blog. You are a great mom with a great kid, Elizabeth, and I am so very happy for you and Henry! May there be many more. Try a lemon drop with that gin, refreshing in this hot weather - enjoy!

  3. 21 -- Wow! That DOES drive home how long I've been reading your blog! Happy birthday to Henry. :)

  4. Ah, the Milestone of being totally Legal to just Adult! Happy 21st Birthday Henry!
