Happy Birthday to our Golden Girl xxx

20:36 Karen 8 Comments

This has been a big week with a lot of first times.

It was our Golden Girl's 19th Birthday on Monday and it was the first time in 19 birthdays that I didn't wake her by singing Happy Birthday. It was the first time in 19 years that I didn't make her birthday cake and for the first time I had to skype to see her open her presents from us.


BUT I wouldn't change a thing because our girl is living her dream, spending time with her boy and having such fun with her friends.

So here is a quick recap of her birthday as seen through her facebook photos.

A little, silly, additional present from us.


An afternoon on the beach with her boy


A fancy dress party with her friends.


Reasons to be cheerful:

1. That she has such a lovely boyfriend who made her day so very special.

2. She has such a vast and fun set of friends.

3. We are allowed to have a little insite into her world through her facebook page.

It looks like she had a wonderful day Karen :). This year was the first year we didn't have Claire here for her birthday and it was quite strange but at least we got to see her. I'm glad you got a peek at your girl's birthday too. xx

Happy {belated} birthday to your sweet girl, Karen. Carrie's birthday is in the summertime, so even when she was away at school, she was always home for the summer by the time her birthday rolled around. Sad that you couldn't be with her in person, but wonderful that you found other ways to connect!

Looks like she had a great day. Hooray for technology that lets us keep in close contact.
