A festive day

We wanted to have you, soooo badly!
And we were blessed to see your face
one sunny day in the middle of October.
10 years ago.
 A single event which has turned our lifes around.
Everything is new again thanks to you…
We see life through your beautiful blue eyes and
 we rediscover all that we thought we knew until then.
We have given you life and
you give it right back to us, every hour, every day.
And here you are, not little anymore !
Not asking for help while you wash your hair, reading to 
yourself at night,crawling into my iPad against my will,
closing the door of your room to get dressed…
You are excited about growing up and
we look at you as if for the first time…
We are immensely proud and pleased to see you growing
with only love in your heart and knowing that
 your pretty face
 reflects your spirit and your beliefs.
Be yourself my love
Give joy to everyone who knows you!
Be happy!


  1. Oh my! I have tears in my eyes now! This is such a beautiful post both with the loving words you have threaded together AND those glorious pink pictures! I love pink, you see :-) Our children are an huge blessing and I KNOW I have learned as much about life from them as they have learned from us.

    Warmest wishes,


  2. What a beautiful post-- your words and your beautiful pictures. I know how you feel! I have 2 daughters who thrill my heart. You created such a beautiful party, too-- so memorable.

    Thank you for your visit to my blog. To answer your question: in my blog header the 2nd picture (of the lamp) was taken by me at my house. The profile picture of me in the sidebar was also taken in front of my house. The others in the blog header are not of my house but are used by permission. I did a blog post a while back that does show more of the outside of my house. Here's a link to it. http://www.ivyclad.com/2012/04/for-love-of-ivy.html

    Thanks for asking!


  3. Congralutions, I am impressed by your wonderful words. As mother of two wonderful daughters I know exactly what you mean. I hope she will bring a lot of happiness during the rest of her life!

    Big hugs, Ingrid

  5. Dear Olympia,

    what a wonderful post - so honest words to your daughter.
    I love my children too - this was the best thing whatever I have done in my life.
    The children give us more back, what we can give them.
    They are the sun in our sky, the light in our nights, the honest person in our life.
    Your post is so wonderful and your daughter can also be proud of so wonderful parents.
    And I know it, that she know this.
    The birthday cake and the flowers are so beautiful - wonderful colours
    It was sure a wonderful day for you and for the litttle princess.

    Enjoy the time with her - they will grow up so quickly

    Have a good time

    Your Bluemchenmama

  21. Your beautiful heartfelt words and the lovely photos bought tears to my eyes!
    I hope your daughter had a the most wonderful Birthday celebrations, what a lovely setting with all the lovely china and amazing roses, and that beautiful cake...........they grow up so quickly Olympia, they are so incredibly precious, as is every moment you spend with them, and you often only remember this, sadly, when those moments are less frequent as they grow older.
    My daughter is now 18 and on the verge of leaving home to be nearer University - she needs to go, even though she says she doesnt want to leave us, to be able to grow and experience more, so i am counting every blessed moment I enjoy with her now, knowing it won't be long...........try and treasure every moment!

  22. Happy birthday to your daughter! Reading your words, they made me remember when my sons are little boys... They're now 20 and 16 years old, but the thoughts as a mother is the same as yours. Thank you for the great post! And congratulations!

  23. ~ The colours of those beautiful flowers are so pretty on this post, Olympia and match the sentiments of love you show for your lovely girl....Pink is for love after all...Time flies in the blink of an eye...enjoy your lovely daughter, it seems only yesterday that my Olivia was 10 years...and very soon she will be off on her adventures to university!
