Happy 18th Birthday, Sofia Vassilieva!

My goodness, I can't believe Eloise is all grown up now. It's getting to be that time of year, too, when I have to watch my DVDs of Eloise at the Plaza and Eloise at Christmastime. Yes, Christmas staples. And yes, I cry every time, because I'm apparently just that emotionally fragile. Or predictable. Whatever.

Anyway, I wanted to mark Sofia Vassilieva's passage into adulthood because of the movie My Sister's Keeper, which was a predictably bad and overdramatic movie about cancer that she was actually quite excellent in and, nonetheless, helped me put some of my feelings about my sister's cancer death in perspective. First Eloise, then that. I hope Sofia does something else for me to love in the near future.
