Aw, little Tuckie Wuckie is finally 21! No more watching all your friends go to the bar without you on the weekends. House parties are a thing of the past! I'm so excited to hear your first bar stories, and possibly a getting arrested because of a bar fight story. Just kidding, don't do that. (Also, you know you can have a lot of fun being sober at a bar, too!)
Last year around this time, I don't think I fully processed what you had gone through just a few months before. I don't remember much of your birthday from last year, or if you were even walking around that time. I was just so thankful you made it to 20. Healing both physically and mentally hasn't come easy for you, but you've proven your strength so many times. I think I'm more thankful for you making it to 21 than I was for 20.
I hope you have the best birthday ever. Keep being the strong kid we all know you are and don't let anyone bring you down. Anyway, behave and I love you, Tucker Anne!

P.S. Arizona has some really cool places to hang out so maybe you should move here?
