Our baby is 4 years old! We celebrated her birthday last weekend. I adore having a girl. She wanted her birthday to revolve around flowers, the color pink, princesses and cake. Sounded perfect to me. She got up especially early on her big day and so we decided to go for a walk while the rest of the family slept. She spent our time picking dandelions so that she could blow on them to make birthday wishes. I will always cherish the memory of that quiet cool morning walking with her. She loves nature and has so much enthusiasm for life. She recognizes the beauty all around her and finds complete joy in it. She sang songs for the flowers and trees, the birds and the worms and even the weeds in the grass. My heart felt like it would burst with love for her!
Later we went to Burnside Tulip Farm in Haymarket, Virginia. She was so excited to get to pick from so many beautiful tulips and daffodils.
After "brothers" came home from school we had cake and presents. Grandpa and Grandma Butler were here to enjoy the festivities with us. In typical Harley style everything had to be pink and she even wore a pink princess crown and dress.
Happy Birthday to my darling daughter! May you always know you are beautiful and remember the gift you have been given of bringing happiness and light to all those around you.
