birthday girl

summer wheeler turned eleven years old yesterday.

summer is a friend, a musician, an artist, a reader. she is responsible and curious and (mostly) patient. she is confident and intelligent and imaginative and eager to please. she likes surprises and specialness and crafting and being warm and cozy and comfortable. she dislikes being alone and the broth in chicken noodle soup and when her baby brothers push her just a little bit too far.

summer is sensitive to the suffering of others. she has a heart as big as this world, and she uses it every day to lift and to lighten.

we love you, sweet summer! happiest of birthdays to the baby girl who was born with her eyes wide open, just taking it all in.
