Chiquita at 14
Today the Chiquita turns 14. I can't believe we have both made it this far! Everyday she becomes more of the self-confident woman that she is growing into. I have delighted in her creativity and problem-solving skills. She has a clever mind that not only will serve her well, but that actually makes her very witty and funny too.
And there have been all of her own creative adventures! There was her first sewing project, her first dyeing adventures, letterboxing with handmade stamps, the Cimorene costume we made for her in 2009 and the Dragon Queen in 2011. Duct tape roses have come and gone in popularity regularly.
Love you Chiquita! May you always find the beauty in the world around you, and the world always have just the right amount of challenge. I look forward to seeing what you put your mind to next.
