9 years ago today, the world became a brighter, more loving place. Perhaps you only mildly sensed it and thought it was only the dawning of the spring season. In fact, it was because on March 19, 2008, #mamiejanelorelei was born. She is that feeling you get when the dolphins choose your boat to play around, or when that pelican slowly glides right along with you on your #midbaybridge #bike ride. She's the one that notices you've suddenly decided you need bangs or are wearing a new perfume. She SEES you. You are suddenly acknowledged, appreciated and cherished just for being you. That is #agirlcalledlu. Happy birthday and thank you for being my daughter.
