Our Daughter Turns 21

Our older daughter turned 21 today with a quiet celebration comprising of frosted sugar cookies and the present of a couple books supporting her interest in public policy. We watched the Newtown memorial service together and generally felt rather somber, while also actively grateful for such a wonderful daughter who is working so hard to make the world a better place.

The photos shown here were taken today, with the exception of the one at the bottom, which was taken of her last week with Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley and is wife at their Christmas party at the Governor’s mansion. Virginia, we are so proud of you and love you so much!
