Happy Birthday, Bijoux.

The late, great Bijoux was born twenty years ago today. Our family has gone on with our lives, of course, but the impact she made on us, especially Jim and me, will be felt forever. So much love.

One of my favorite lines to use when someone asks me to sign one of my books is some form or another of this:

"I read once that memories are like photographs on the heart...she'll be with you forever; all you have to do is remember."

I'm remembering so much today. I'm so thankful that she was a part of our lives for thirteen years.
