Totally unexpected Tiffany & Co bday girft from M, and a wonderful little @BridierBaubles bracelet from Mom and Dad. Lots of awesome prezzies for a wedding year!. #bday #love #family (Taken with Instagram)
Last of the Father-Daughter song shortlist for the #wedding. “Wonderful Tonight” by Eric Clapton. Such a classic! I know that might be weird for people, but my Dad and I really bonded over listening to classic rock and it isn’t like I can do a father-daughter dance to the Grateful Dead… and it isn’t as outwardly romantic if you really read the lyrics… it is just super affectionate. One of my favorites!
TJ’s casa. My favorite time to go is in Spring. I miss going with my Grandpapa, who used to go to pay respect to our family buried there.

Happy birthday to my first cousin, 8 times removed (I hate the word removed, it makes it sound like we aren’t related but it means generations back)
Happy 269th birthday, Mr. Jefferson!
Born April 13th, 1743 in Shadwell, Virginia
