This is my son, Drew. He's 27 today. Happy Birthday, Drew!
He's all grown up and living in Amsterdam. Yes, I'm jealous. He is in Spain in this photo, which is the beauty of living in Europe.
Seeing this photo reminds me of a long ago story. He was in middle school. I was driving him to one of his many activities. I had on my glasses. It was very bright. It had to be after July 4 in Portland (inside joke). I didn't have prescription sunglasses so I just put my sunglasses on over the top of my regular lenses.
He looked at me and said "You must be really confident." I didn't understand. He added "that you could go out in the world looking like that".
It's become a family joke. If someone tells you that you must be confident, look in the mirror.
Hi Drew, comment if you are reading this...
