Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have posted!  Between my new job, school and parenting it seems that my time is more precious than ever.  Trying to align life and school with my new job has been a bigger challenge than I expected but I think it is finally evening out.  Although at times it feel like there is no fun these days, this past weekend was a reminder that isn't true.  My daughter (my baby girl!) had a birthday so my youngest son and I spent the weekend with her and her husband to celebrate. 
Of course, we came bearing her favorite cake, Raspberry Elegance.  It is one my favorites as well.  She loves it so much her wedding cake was a bigger, more beautiful version of it!  Notice the candles?  That is what you get when the 16 year old baby brother is in charge of putting them on the cake!  No, she isn't 62!
One of the treats we had was being able to go see my beautiful, smart and talented daughter in action at her work. She also received some major brotherly love from the nefarious candle organizer!
The event we attended was sponsored by the hospital where my daughter works.  The day was kind of an end of the season/fall festival event which wrapped up with a showing of Beauty and the Beast during  "movie on the lawn night." It was fun to see my girl do her thing and see the results of her hard work.  Can you tell I am a little bit proud of her? 

The best way to describe what her birthday means to me is to say the day she was born, I changed...she made me a better person. She made me a Mom. I wouldn't trade that title or one single moment with my 3 amazing children for anything in the world.  I am blessed. 

Happy Birthday, baby girl!
You are so very loved!
