My daughter Miranda turns 21 today! We have spawned an adult!!
That's Miranda on our family vacation to Puerta Vallarta this spring.
She's been away at school in Europe since September, and her parents and three brothers anxiously await her return at Christmas.
Miranda is a great cook and we miss all the foods she makes us. However, it appears from the photo that I am still finding things to eat.
Miranda was born in Springfield, Ill., the Land of Lincoln, when her father was a reporter in the Illinois Statehouse. She has lived in Yakima, Wash., Sacramento, Calif., and Spokane, Wash. In high school she was an honor student and lettered in soccer, tennis and cross country. We are very proud of her.
