Amy, what you gonna do?

I heart Amy Carter. We were born in the same year, and yet she had to go through her gawky years so publicly, I can't imagine that.

And I also love her because of all of this, from her Wikipedia entry:

"In September 1996, Carter married computer consultant James Gregory Wentzel, whom she had met while attending Tulane. Ms. Carter chose not to be "given away," stating that she "belonged to no one." Ms. Carter and Mr. Wentzel both kept their own family names. The couple moved to the Atlanta area, where they have focused on raising their son Hugo James Wentzel (born July 29, 1999). Since the late 1990s, Carter has maintained a low profile, neither participating in public protests nor granting interviews; she is a board member of the Carter Center that advocates human rights and diplomacy as established by her father."

You go, Amy Carter.
