Making birthday party hats…


A little forest faun ~

Penelope’s birthday ice-cream!

She stuck the spoon on the rabbit’s face while I wasn’t looking! Stinker.

Happy Birthday to my beautiful, funny, sweet, confident, and energetic daughter…Penelope Louise.

You make every day an adventure and I am so lucky to spend all of this time with you, getting to know one another and discovering the world together. You make the world a better place and have given me the opportunity to be the mother I always wanted to be.

"I walk down the garden paths,
And all the daffodils
Are blowing, and the bright blue squills.
I walk down the patterned garden paths
In my stiff, brocaded gown.
I too am a rare
Pattern. As I wander down
The garden paths."

— Amy Lowell (via mycolorbook)
