There are a lot of “firsts” that we remember in our lives. Our first love, our first bike, or possibly the first time a book or album changed our life. There are other firsts that we don’t remember; like our first birthday. My youngest daughter’s first birthday is next week (12/19) and we’re having a big party for her on the 22nd. She won’t remember anything about the day, but I think it should be a big celebration to remember her first year in our lives. It also made me think of this picture of my father’s first birthday in October 1953. The clothes, the decor, the picture; to me, it’s a classic picture. So, happy early birthday Lyla Kathleen Barresi and I hope all your future “firsts” only get more memorable with time.
