My parents chose to name me Danielle not for a family namesake but because my mom's childhood best friend's maiden name is Daniels. My "Aunt" Donna is obviously a significant person to them both, and to me too as she is both my godmother and the primary reason I appreciate country music. Yes, really.

I spent a wonderful day at South Street Seaport with my mom, "Aunt" Donna, and "cousin" Ryan. It's amazing how time changes so much yet so little.
