24 ... I just love that number

My darling dear of a daughter turns 24 @ exactly 8:05 am this morning.

The prior dreariness of each and every single November disappeared with her birth.

I've never loved a month more.

Yesterday I made her spaghetti and a birthday cake and wondered aloud if I could climb in her window tomorrow morning and wake her with heart shaped pancakes...?

Or a kiss on her turned up nose.

She was a bit upset and voiced her concern that she was now in her middle twenties....

this took me back to the Hallmark store and the birthday card I bought her.

The card said my feelings exactly... it said how much I missed her being a little girl, then it said if by some miracle I could turn back time and make her into the little girl she once was that I wouldn't... I wouldn't because as much as I would love to have her back as that little girl, I would miss the woman so much more.

I am head over heels in love with this girl of mine.

You would be too if she happened to you.

Happy 24th dear darling heart of my heart.

(PS... 24 will be an amazing year)


  1. Such a beautiful girl. Happy 24 years to your Googie. :)

  2. Happy Birthday Googie!
    And Happy Birthing Day Momma! ;)


Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
