Happy Birthday Dear Daughter

I've been here in Louisiana, about a block away, for almost exactly a month now. A month of watermelon and homemade popsicles, dinners and morning greetings.

I'm usually far away on your birthday, but this year I get to give you a hug in person.

Happy birthday. And thank you for encouraging me to come closer.
 You make me very, very happy.

Let's spend some time together baking a cake - you can lick the icing off the spoon like you did when you were a little girl.  Because you'll always be MY little girl, even though you have a little girl of your own now.

That totally has me teary!
I am celebrating you, Lynn, for having a great connection with your daugther and allowing the love to blossom and build until it envelopes you in warm, soft light. That is what I am feeling.(Can you adopt me?)
That and I so want to bake a cake with my daughter just to have her lick the bowl.
Enjoy the day!

Thank you friends, it's what it's all about!

And Happy Birthday Jenny - but how can we both be the same age? I guess I'll have to update my year count, if you are going to allow yours to go up!

I have been away for a long while. Your blog has changed and look wonderful. Even your photography looks grand. Daughters - treasures as we grow older.
