Happy Birthday Rio!!!!

Happy Birthday Rio!!!

I remember 17 as my happiest year.  I was old enough that I had a little bit of freedom to have fun with my friends without the constant watchful eye of our parents, but young enough that all of life's possibilities remained an option.

I remember it was a hard time too.  So much pressure to decide what you want to do with your life, what courses to take to get into a certain school to get your desired career.  Just remember, nothing is set in stone.  Follow your heart to the goals you desire, but if along the way you change your mind - that's ok too!!!  Do what makes you happy and the rest will fall in place.

I hope you're having a wonderful day and know your mom has done a lot to make it special.  All the best, my dear!

For those of you who've stumbled on this post, Betty Roberts, owner and designer of Simply B Stamps, designed this image for her daughter's bday.  Then she organized an amazing blog hop where we all posted our creations using it!  Please hop along - there are some seriously amazing creations!!!
