I played the flute.
I was elected and served as the woodwind lieutenant for the Nimitz band.
I experienced a difficult event at summer camp that completely changed my faith and relationship with God, for the better.
I served as president of the National Junior Honor Society.
I asked a guy out and got turned down.
I spent a lot of time with Dena and Mary.
I studied French.
I made A’s.
I loved Three Musketeers chocolate bars.
I knew all the lines from The Karate Kid and the Outsiders.
I still listened to records on my record player/stereo.
I also listened to many cassette tapes.
I danced with Chris V. at the band Christmas party. It was a ‘spotlight’ dance because we were chosen by the band as Mr. & Mrs. Claus.
I went on my first date. (If a Cashling is reading this—I was actually 25 yrs old, give or take, just like I’ve always told you!)
I fell in love.
I was very active and involved in church youth group. They were like family.
I really liked my parents. (true!)
Fourteen was a good year for me.
Praying it’s a fabulous number for my baby girl, too. (But you’re not dating until your 25. Give or take.)
Happy birthday sweetest first born! Can’t wait to see what this year holds for you!
