21 Elephants

This is the year the youngest turns 21.  We’re in the midst of planning his birthday trip to celebrate.  However, his girlfriend, who we love to pieces, beat him to that milestone.  In fact, she kicked off this Labor Day weekend with birthday cookies and legal fun.  When the realization set in that this was the year the children wouldn’t be children any longer (at least in terms of age), I knew it was important to mark the celebration with something out of the ordinary.

Combining her favorite elephants with the symbols of her sorority and her school colors, 21 Elephants came to life.  She tells me she loves it.

In lieu of a poem, the label for this piece was used for a birthday message.
