I love your giggles. It's your birthday, so of course I had to post a little something ...

Sharing from the past ~

2012 :: I was talking with a friend ...

While that particular statement may seem light-years away from my life, I can assure you, it is not. I do, in fact, drink tea every morning, but that’s not what I’m talking about here. What makes us blissfully happy is watering our plants. To her, the babies that she takes care of, day in & day out, growing them from seed into something more substantial & beautiful. For me, it’s much the same. My babies are my plants. The little people I am growing from seeds.

 

2011 ::  Happy Birthday to you!

Nothing could prepare us for the laughter, joy & spunk you bring to our lives.

 

2010 :: Our little dancing queen (still is!)

 

 

“I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don't want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines and sing out loud in the car with the windows open and wear pink shoes and stay up all night laughing and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets and throw parties and eat ripe tomatoes and read books so good they make me jump up and down, and I want my everyday to make God belly laugh, glad that he gave life to someone who loves the gift.” ― Shauna NiequistCold Tangerines: Celebrating the Extraordinary Nature of Everyday Life

 

Thank you for loving the gift. Thank you for being my gift to love. Happy Birthday baby girl.
