Time for Celebration

For all those parents out there – my eldest turned 21 today yay!!! Definitely a time for reflection and to let her know how exquisite she is and how truly lucky we feel – she certainly holds the key to our hearts forever. Tonight will be pressie & family dinner night and Saturday will be the big partay!!!
Have been going thru her memory box/time capsule that she will get on Saturday, reading thru the letters we wrote her at 2 and a half, so many wonderful details and memories that you forget, there are letters that were written by my grandmother to her before she passed away and letters more recently added by my sister, my mum and close family friends who have watched her grow up.
Being that it is such a milestone I was feeling the pressure to write some monumently beautiful piece in her card and when searching for inspiration came across this beautiful quote I hadn’t read before and ended up adding it in. It is so eloquent and so absolutely true.

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone
