thirteen

Thirteen balloons. Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast, a big hershey bar in her lunch box and her favorite soup in bread bowls for dinner, again.
A vanilla cake with purple buttercream icing. (Quite possibly the ugliest cake I ever made.) She loved every bit of it.
Thirteen beautiful years with a little girl that inspires me every single day.

A very happy birthday to Libby. I am wondering whether or not to show this to my 12 3/4-year-old daughter. Purple birthday cake coming up? I don't think it's ugly at all.

micha said...

Happy birthday to your daughter! My daughter Tabea is thirteen years old too. It's an exciting time.

APA said...

That your young daughter inspires you every day is most certainly a most precious gift given between mother and daughter, one that shall become that of friend to friend, woman to woman, the very same you know with your sisters and mom.

And that is an inspiration to me.

Wishing your beautiful Libby wishes and dreams come true in all colors of the rainbow, possibilities of no bounds!

seashoreknits said...

I've been out of town celebrating my nephew's 13th birthday (the exact same date!!!) What a great day it is! Libby - you're a TEENAGER!!! Hope your day was wonderful in every way. My nephew broke my sister-in-law's heart all day by saying variations of the following all day: "Mom, this is the last breakfast you will make for your little boy". "Mom, this is the last time you will see your little boy leave for school" etc etc
Making it to teenager status was what it was all about.
Sigh
