My Girl

My lovely girl turned eleven today. I really don't know how we've gotten here so fast.

B. at three and a half.

What can I tell you about her - she's hilariously funny, incredibly thoughtful and caring, a talented artist, a voracious reader and an aspiring writer. She adores babies (she's been begging me to have another one for years now), loves animals, and is a good friend.

We're no longer doing large birthday bashes, focusing instead on making a special day just for her. She started her morning with some fluffy aebleskiver, followed by a leisurely bike ride with her dad, an afternoon movie, and at her request we had an Indian feast with family (curry is her favorite), with a yummy homemade lemon cake for dessert. Tomorrow she and I are going out for high tea at our favorite tea house (this hasn't really turned out to be any cheaper than a big bash, but it's a lot more fun!).

Happy Birthday sweetheart!

I can't believe B's 11 already! Like you said, "where does the time fly?" I hope she had a wonderful day.

Wow, she loves curry?! How lucky you are. I'm the only one in my house that does.

Happy Birthday B!

I remember doing the change from big bash to just family,(my girlie turned 18 this year) thinking why not spend that money on the birthday child. It does't cost any less but it's so much fun doing it all!
