This is "Bethany".
Of course it's actually just a picture of Bethany, and not the real deal. Who, by the way, is one of the truly wonderful people walking around on the planet.
My plans were to get this picture of Bethany far enough in advance so that I could post it on Sunday, which was also her birthday. Since I've been out of the country, and I didn't get the picture until today - it's a little late. That, by the way, is "perfect" for this post.
Happy "Birthday" Bethany!
With lots and lots of "love"!
