Lauren is 11. She gives me JOY!

Y'all-my niece is ELEVEN today! I cannot even believe it. Here is just a tiny glimpse of the fun memories she has given me over the years.
Here we are at KK and JJ's house! Lauren was probably two then. Adorable.
I specifically remember when she wrote a note to the tooth fairy. How precious!
Here she is playing "Pretty Pretty Princess" with me. She wanted the pink jewels, of course. And she won the game too! 
Fast forward to now!
Lauren is a beautiful young.....I have to say it now...PRETEEN! HA!
We continue to have a blast every single time we are together and she gives her whole family JOY! 

I posted this on Instagram last night, and I had to add it to this post as well. The pic on the top left was taken on the day I found my wedding dress six years ago. She wanted to wear the hat. The next pic was taken on Lauren's 3rd birthday party at Pink Bliss. Bottom pics are present day. (sigh.) Lauren and Logan both make my heart melt. Being an aunt is one of the BEST things ever. What am I going to do when I become a mother? My heart may explode. HAHA! I love Lauren very much and hope she has had a great day.
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy. Philippians 1:4
