She started out as sweet as a button.
Her father bought this gorgeous pink dress and brought it to the hospital.
This was her DAY!!, Jan 27th, 1980.
And this may get long...but as a Mom and a blogger,
it's my privilege to enjoy and share the memories of life.
I've been through so many albums this past January,
and I just keep smiling as I go.
At 10, she believed her dog was also Queen of the house.
At 10, she thought she was Queen of the ski hill.
Can you see her peering through the window?
She has received a long awaited birthday gift.
What an exciting day.
Riding down the road,
with corn fields and Mt. Cheam as her backdrop
She was experiencing life at it's best!
At 20, she loved to teach her younger cousin to ride Cheval.
No wonder she continued on with her education,
to become a passionate teacher working with inner city children.
Today she is celebrating yet another milestone.
She's the proud owner of her very first home
and Queen of her own Island....
It's been a week of mixed emotions, as I watch her continue to
make her decisions about her new life in her own home.
She's grown, she's gone...
I knew that would happen.
It's so permanent.
I know that happened long ago...
but it's one more step to leaving home.
She cleaned out her bedroom this week.
I guess she's left for good.
Really, I can't wait to have coffee in her new home!
The two sisters giggle and laugh as they know there Mom is
trying to get a picture to post on her blog...
No decent family shots in this home.
The sisters take a tour of the new home.
I wonder what they are looking at?
There's laughter over this antique rocker.
This was my rocker which I used for rocking my little ones.
And yes, it has stories and memories.
Years back, she asked about having this keepsake.
So here they pose, pretending....
Where has the time gone?
As I said, no decent shots around this place.
Lots of love and laughter.
But today, I'm introducing just a hint of pink into her life again.
As I helped her unpack over the past few days,
honestly I can say...PINK has been eliminated from her life.
Add a pink card and away we go...
God bless you Suzannne in this special year
and in your new home as you share it with family and friends.
You've looked forward to this day.
We've all looked forward to this day!
