Not sure exactly when it was that her daddy gave her that nickname.
But it stuck.
And it fits.
When she was 2 she told us that when she grew up she was going to drive across the country to live in California.
Not sure where that came from exactly since we come from a long line of East Coasters.
But I believed her then.
And still do today.
She's our adventurous one.
Or, more appropriately, one of our adventurous ones.
Not sure if they'd even eaten breakfast yet.
Practically had the whole beach all to themselves.
When they grow up.
Which is happening much too soon if you ask me.
Not being one for dresses or frills.
And if shoes are necessary...flip flops.
All the time.
Just in case a soccer game breaks out, I guess.
Always the prepared one she is.
Not today though.
Today it's boogie boards and pony tails.
Flip flops and catching waves.
And I'm going to enjoy every minute of "today.'
Because "tomorrow" will surely be here before I know it.
