Happy birthday

My DD is turning 19 today. My little girl is becoming a grown up. I still remember the day she was born. A beautiful warm june afternoon. I was so happy when I got to hold her in my arms. And now she is a beautiful independent young lady who I am very proud of. Happy birtdhay dear.
We always had the tradition to wake up the birthday child with gifts and food in the morning. Singing the birthday song. Today it was only me singing for her (poor girl listening to me singing LOL).
I had made her this make up purse. And it was very convenient because her old one was destroyed yesterday. And I filled it up with some makeup and money. She is saving for a new computer.
And some cakes are ready. Her favorite is "Verdens beste", it's a cake with meringue, almonds and vanilla cream. I also made a strawberry crem cake.
Saying for today:

Childhood should be a journey - not a race

Happy Birthday Lena...Hope you have/had a wonderful day.

May Britt those cakes look soooo yummy, it's not right to make my mouth water so early in the morning. Love the makeup bag you made for her and those flowers are beautiful.

She's beautiful -- She looks about 14-- that's a compliment... when she's 30 she'll look 25... When she's 50, I'll bet she'll look 40...
Tell her Happy Birthday....
