It's her birthday...and not just any birthday....it's the big 3-0! Woo Hoo. She thinks it's old and I want to shake her and tell her what "I" know...this is a terrific age to be! She will love her 30's, I'm positive!
She was a precious baby, sweet girl and we've been so close. I'm really lucky. I have a ton of photographs. Almost literally! Hubby is a photographer...so you can imagine! I could spend hours sifting through photos. I decided to narrow it down and include pictures of her and me. That made it really easy!
I love this picture! It's like time travel for me. I can remember that moment and everything about it. I love those candid 'everyday' pictures that capture real life.
My girl was always soooo cuddly. I held her most of the time.
This is from Yosemite...we go way back with this special place.
She has always been a "girlie girl" (I don't know where she gets it!) and I always LOVED fixing her hair and dressing her up. Gotta love those pigtails!
And she has always been a really happy person. She does have a temper, but it's always short lived. I remember when she used to get mad and she would stomp her foot and say loudly "I'n not Hoppy!".
This is from our fun trip to New York with her Jr. High choir. We couldn't be in NYC and not go to Broadway!
This looks like Yosemite again!
I always called her my "precious angel", but the "little devil" fits too!
My one and only backpacking trip. It was so wonderful that I could write pages about it. And, it was a really bonding time for my daughter and me.
Her teen years were a dream. She was a gymnast, cheerleader, swimmer and she even placed 2nd Runner up in the Local county pageant. It has always been fun to be her mom!
My daughter's wedding was one of the very best days of my life. We both say that we would love to do that all over again!
Her we are just recently. She lives right next door and we have many good times together.
I was honored to be included with her girlfriends for a day of pampering!
And, I gave her 30 presents to honor her special day, (will admit to adding some pieces of candy to pad the numbers!).
This past 30 years has been wonderful. I'm looking forward to the next 30! Happy Birthday Sweetie!!
