Six years ago today, our one and only baby was born, changing life forever in ways I could never have imagined. A wise friend once told me, back before I became a mom, that having children “opens doors in your heart you never knew existed.” I can definitely say that has been the case for me.

Happy Birthday to my sweet, spunky, energetic, creative, opinionated, elephant-memoried, sugar-loving, tree-climbing princess. May your path always be lined with gold and pink petals.

    Happy day to all of you! Don’t those pink petal lined paths just have to make you smile, no matter your age!

    Thanks, Paula! Yes, I always have a big grin when I see the cherries and maples in bloom, then all that pink and yellow “snow”!

    Oh what a delight, Karen! She is a lovely child and you are both so lucky to have each other. May you have a long and happy relationship together. Notice I didn’t say smooth sailing. 🙂 A very happy birthday to a special girl.

    ps. good deal on the golden pineapple sage too. My youngest child of 4, age 26, has one that also returned in his Asheville, NC garden.
