The Number 13 ..

Hello my dear friends,

have I even told you how much I love the number 13?! 

It has been very special to me since 25 years now and that for more than one reason. Actually it is for two reasons that this number is a huge part of my life. One of the reasons is that 25 years ago I received the most beautiful gift you could ever receive ... my first daughter was born.

Last Friday, on Friday the 13th my baby girl Ashleigh celebrated her 25th birthday!
She is all grown up and married now and we are so proud of her.

I was actually able to place all 25 candles on her little cake and my, was it bright and loved so pretty too!

Ashleigh is still the cutest ...

... because she still closes her eyes and makes a wish when she blows the candles out on her birthday cake.

Even though she made clear that she didn't want any gifts ...

... we just couldn't have this day without a special little something for her to remember it by.

In three months the second reason for my love of the number 13 will celebrate her birthday as well. My lovely daughter Caylagh was also born on a 13th, now almost 15 years ago. I am so blessed and grateful for my daughters ~ they are my world.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
