As the week of Lexi is about to begin..... it was actually three years ago this week that we last said that as you became a bat mitzvah, I am finding myself so excited.
Starting with your 16th birthday on Monday, the 19th annual food allergy luncheon on Wednesday, and then a beautiful night surrounded by all of your family and friends in celebration of you. You are truly my sunshine girl Alexandra Rosenbloom.... your smile lights up a room just like the sun, your laugh contagious, your optimism and warm heart make me smile every day. You have not let your severe food allergies hold back, in fact you have chosen to live your life filled with adventure and joy and never taking anything for granted. I look forward to celebrating the milestones that have been made with food allergy research since you were born 16 years ago with you by my side on Wednesday.
Enjoy this week my sweet girl feeling proud for all that you have accomplished, feeling hope that good things are ahead for those who live with food allergies, relish in the celebration of you, sing your heart out at rehearsal every day, Study..... and most importantly know how much you are admired respected and loved.
