Yesterday my little girl turned 17...we celebrated with her very favourite people and feasted on party food - mini burgers, homemade pizza, chicken drummies and party pies...oooh, and of course ice-cream cake.
There were violet fairy cakes fit for a fairy princess...
After our splendiferous feast, we watched old home movies when she was very young...we laughed until we cried, and got a little melancholy as well...I know it's a cliche' but time really does fly.
I am teaching her to drive now, and she drives to school every day. Before long, she will be finished high school and out into the big wide world. I am so proud of her and honoured to be her mother. I won't lie...it hasn't always been rainbows and unicorns, but she has blossomed into a wonderful, caring soul, who I am happy to call friend as well as daughter.
My wish for her is that she stays true to herself, lives her life abundantly, and finds magic in the everyday...Happy Birthday my darling Georgia - I love you to the moon and back xxx
Did I mention we love ice-cream cake?
