Day Two Hundred Thirty Eight, September 17, 2011

Happy Birthday to today's quarter million!

After a long hot summer and a lot of traveling, the first sign that we are settled back from the holidays is a home made cake. Lea and I baked a marble cake today and then she and her friend took out all the decorations we have to create their masterpieces.

Candles were added and lit because every day more than 250,000 babies are born on our planet and it’s always someone’s birthday. Happy Birthday someone!

I am posting this also on my beautiful mother’s birthday, so Happy Birthday mom, I love you and am so glad you were born 🙂

Day One Hundred Twenty Six, May 28, 2011

Today was a day of celebration

She woke up early on the day of her 7th birthday and ran to my bed declaring “I have dreamt that I  was being swallowed by a giant clock!”

And isn’t time like that? Isn’t it a ruthless giant clock that ticks and keeps on ticking whether we like it or not, whether we are ready or not?

I love celebrating Lea’s Birthday with her. We plan the party weeks in advance and enjoy the preparation almost as much as the event itself. She is so full of life and excitement, how can I not respond likewise and not celebrate full force?

Happy Birthday Little Lea!
