With Much Love

After nine months + 10 days
and 38 hours of hard work
you came into my life, in Dublin, Eire. 
My first child.
Today you are 14 years old.

You are such a joy, and I am
so glad to know you.

Happy Birthday Danika!


  1. What a pretty, pretty name! Happy birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter! She has the loveliest smile!

  3. Thank you so much, Rodi!
    Oh and I received your lovely package yesterday!
    I simply love it, and thank you ever so much for the extra wee house.
    My children might be demanding to have them, and create a little village with little people :)

  4. Happy Birthday to Danika! I love that name!

  5. Thank you Christy... The eating of cakes will be happening soon :)

  6. Oh, it took long enough to reach you considering it didn't have to travel that far :(
    But I'm so happy you liked it!!

  7. 14. when did that happen? happy birthday!!!

  8. I know, isn't it shocking Ramona. You must have the same with your children. I remember being pregnant with her. It certainly does not feel that was 14 years ago (!!) x

  9. Happy Birthday to the Party girl!

    (And as they do in holland: Congratulations to mom! ... isn't it the sweetest thing that they congratulate the whole family when a child has its birthday?!)

    Light up the candles on the cake!

  10. Oh yes, they do in Holland. It is always such a large family gathering, and the congratulating goes round and round each time a new person comes in (It is very sweet, and I really miss it)

    ((thank you for your comment!))
