Happy 22nd Birthday my darling girl


Our girl is 22 years old today. That's her official grad portrait; the original is sharp with brilliant colors and detail, but I copied it with my phone camera and couldn't manage to get rid of the glare. Hard to believe in two short months she will be a college graduate. It's such a cliche to say how quickly the time went, but I'm saying it anyway. The birthday girl insisted on baking her own cake, a layered ombre number with blue macarons on top. She was in the kitchen mixing and fixing most of the afternoon, ably assisted by her bf, who made her a personalized app for her birthday (because when you know how to write code you can do that). She's home for spring break and tomorrow she and I will travel to warmer climes where we plan to swim and float and daydream the hours away. I'm so thrilled she wants to do this with her mama. The cake she made was a thing of beauty, like its maker. How blessed we are to be hers.

  1. I am not sure that's glare we see. I think it is the light which emanates from her very soul. And yes- it's a beautiful thing that she wants to spend time with her mama and why wouldn't she? You are the source of her life and all of the love with has surrounded her and come from her since birth. Happy birthday to both of you. I celebrate you.

  3. A kind and beautiful face - Happy Birthday to her, and as Ms Moon says, to you also. Did you spend today thinking about the day she was born? Or is that just me on my childrens' birthdays? Enjoy your trip together; it sounds like a lovely thing to do.
