. and she’s gone .

Wow, that went fast. My dear baby Izzy left me today to set out on her own adventure. I’m so proud of who she is and who she is becoming. I am going to miss her smart sense of humor and her ability to captivate two fighting boys in the blink of an eye. She is a precious, wise old soul who has brought so much joy to my life. I can’t wait to see where life takes her next.

not quite everything she owns

people who are ready to move into her room

but still sad to see her go

not ready for her to go and saddest of all

sweet Chyna helping her hit the road
See the pyramids around the Nile
Watch the sun rise
From the tropic isle
Just remember darling
All the while
You belong to me
See the market place
In old Algiers
Send me photographs and souvenirs
Just remember
When a dream appears
You belong to me
And I’ll be so alone without you
Maybe you’ll be lonesome too
Fly the ocean
In a silver plane
See the jungle
When it’s wet with rain
Just remember till
You’re home again
You belong to me
You Belong to Me
