23 years ago today my son Gavin was born. It is hard to believe that so much time has flown by. He has been a joy to me every minute he has been a part of my life.

The hardest part of parenting is letting them leave the nest. Gavin recently got his own apartment, and the house doesn’t seem the same without him.

He is really an incredible person:  funny, generous, smart and independent. He has marched to the beat of his own drum since he was a little boy, and I love that about him.

Happy birthday. I love you.
