Olivia's birthday

June 24th, 2015

Eight is a magical number. I can't believe eight years ago I gave birth to a daughter who I'm more in love with now, than I was then.

What a gift.

Olivia is a marvelous little human. I took the day off to be with her.


We opened presents in the morning and she was thrilled with all her gifts. She's so polite and thankful.

I took her to a movie and spent as much time looking at her, as I did the film. It delights me to see her happy.

Then we went to the grocery so I could make dinner - reminds me of fun housewife times! - and I let her throw all kinds of things in the cart... because it's her birthday!

I made her favorite dinner and then we played with her gifts. She was such a perfect girl. When she's good, she's very good.


It was a perfect day. I'm not sure if it was a better day for her, or me!

    Happy birthday Olivia and happy birthday Diane! Their birthdays are always so poignant to me as their mother. All that has transpired before, during and after their birth. The memories of holding them as infants and then to see how much they have grown, how special they are, what unique individuals they are becoming...

    Nothing finer than a mother's love. Thanks for sharing Diane.
