On St. Patrick’s Day 2013, my cousin Meghan will be turning Sweet 16! I can not tell you how wonderful its been watching her grow up into the smart, mature and beautiful young lady she is today! I feel like just yesterday we were on a family vacation together in the Bahamas, both of us much younger, me babysitting her when our parents went out – and in a flash, its 8 years later, i’m a couple years shy of turning 30 and she is turning 16!  Its amazing how time flies! Meghan, make sure you cherish every moment – because yes, time does fly by, but the memories collected along the way can never be replaced!  Happy Sweet 16 gorgeous girl! xo
