22

Today is a special day for Her Heel Flops!  One of the sister’s celebrates a birthday…Marissa is 22 today and about to take the world by storm!  As you saw in our recent College article, Marissa is just months away from graduating from The University of Tampa (with honors) and embarking on her own journey in this big beautiful world.

As the eldest sister, I couldn’t be more proud of her accomplishments.  It still feels like yesterday, we were awaiting her arrival at the hospital.  As a mother to my own son now, I can relate to the overwhelming joy my mother must have had on February 12, 1992!  An intelligent, graceful, witty and completely beautiful person inside and out.  I am blessed to be able to call Marissa my sister and more importantly, my friend.

So here’s to you Marissa, on your birthday.  Cheers, with a big, bold, fat glass of Cabernet (or perhaps an Imperial while reminiscing about our Costa Rica days).  I love you more than you will ever know!  (FYI: I can’t help but replay Taylor Swift’s “22” song in my head over and over again and think of you!) xoxoxo
