Celebrating Olivia's 9th Birthday~
I have loved every minute of preparing for Olivia's 9th Birthday. She started preparing many moons ago for this day. She made her own Birthday calendar and religiously marked the days. Born here in our home 9 years ago seems even more special. Birthday morning was a special Waldorf tradition of gently smothering her in kisses and then taking a huge leap out of bed as we all sang out her full 9 years of age. Her beautiful crown still fits. I made it 5 years ago. Shame, can you imagine how large I must have made it back then.... We had a lovely group of friends and family visit. Our days have been hot so Elderflower cordial made the day before, cooled us down as we sat on the veranda watching the party unfold into raptures of laughter.
Our beautiful South African protea opened on Liv's Birthday morning...We also noticed the first pink blossoms on our courtyard tree. A happy Birthday Dear Liv, a happy Birthday to you~!
