Make a wish

My first granddaughter turned seven today. There was a garden party ... sundresses, giggling girlfriends, arts and crafts, music for dancing, and a mom and dad who worked hard to make their little girl's day memorable and fun.

It was.

May all your wishes come true, Sophie. And may you be surrounded by forever friends, forever.

Love, Babci xxoo

She (and Hannah) look so lovely in that picture.

Happy Birthday, Sophie!

You capture the birthday girl and her party beautifully.
I've never commented before, but I'm a big fan of yours. I am a young mother of two girls in New Hampshire and often find myself in tears after reading your posts. I dream that someday my children will have someone to reflect so elegantly on their childhood as you do. What a wonderful gift you are giving them. :)

Thank you all for these sweet words. Melissa, how gracious you are! I hope your dream comes true. One of the reasons I started this blog was to create a written archive for the grandkiddies.
