The great love of my life
Today’s is Lauren’s 19th birthday, so today’s post is all about her (Matthew, we’ll get to you later this summer).
Music plays as large a part of Lauren’s life, as it does in my life. Like me, she’s interested in all types of music — and, like me, she has a brain filled with music trivia that she feels she must share with everyone. We’ve seen some great concerts in the last few years — Prince, with Morris Day & The Time … David Bowie, with Stereophonics … Rilo Kiley, with The Brunettes. We’re going to see Beck next month.
Her friends are as important to her as her family, and she has a great group of friends.

Lauren and I have always had great times together, ever since she was a toddler. We share a lot of interests — music, art, movies, great earrings. I'm lucky that I get to spend a lot of time with her.
She’s become one of my favorite people to tour the High with. We first took her to the museum when she was in grammar school, to see the Matisse exhibit. We try to go about once a year these days. She has great insights about the art, and I love hearing her thoughts about the work.
Lauren’s a great travel companion. We went to London, Paris and southwest France in 2001. Lauren and I were roomies in London and Paris, and had fun wandering the streets and taking in the sites.

Lauren is a beautiful, amazing woman. She’ll always be interesting, and I can’t wait to see where life takes her.
Lauren and Mom are headed to Italy on Saturday. Can't wait to hear about those adventures!
