Living Vicariously or When I Grow Up

My friend Reba came for a visit.
I wanted to be her when I grew up.

She graduated fro SCAD with a degree in Fashion Design and Textiles.  
She picked up  and moved to Paris--without a job or the language, but with a passion for adventure.
She creates beautiful knitwear--some of which was featured in a SCAD advertisement in Teen Vogue.
She writes beautifully, keeping her charming voice clear.
She is genuine and warm.
She is beautiful.
She is stylish.
But mostly she is just good and real and lovely all the way through to her tender core.

I still want to be her when I grow up.

I love this quote:
"It is never too late to be what you might have been."
--George Eliot

What do you want to be when you grow up?

a shop girl. an artist... or a beautician... or a humanitarian service missionary... or a hermit/hoarder... a reader/writer/teacher? I don't know... maybe just a mom... and then a gramma.

You are already all of those things!
Well, except a gramma.
