Nearly a special day!!!

Saturday, March 21, 2009



Well tomorrow is my 43rd birthday!!! It is funny looking at these photos and thinking back at all the simple memories of growing up on a gorgeous little dairy farm just 20 minutes from the beach. It was truly idyllic. Having my mum and dad by my side every day and making every moment so special for me... I always get a little sad on my birthday (missing my mum and dad) but in my heart they are with me I know!!! and having my own gorgeous family here to celebrate is all I really need....Also want to say Happy Birthday for the same day to my friend Aina in Sweden.....xxxx

  8. Hi Cathy, I too always miss my mum on my birthday as she left a week after my birthday and more so now that I am getting closer to the age that she was when she went. Have a lovely day with your family.

  11. The happiest of birthdays to you sweet girl! How exciting it will be to look back this time next year & see all you will have achieved, especially with your exciting new venture. Not that I want you to be another year older too quickly!

  13. Cathy have a wonderful happy day.
    Surrounded by your family, no doubt having a great birthday.
    Last night we celebrated the eldest of my siblings - my sister Susan's 60th Birthday. I can't believe I have a sister that age. It only seems like yesterday that she was in Grade 6 and walking me to my first day of school.
