today she is 8













 During this past year Greta has spent time in 3 states, she learned to ride a bike, she lost her first 3 teeth, she learned to swim.  She's super smart, talented, and sophisticated.  I am so proud of all that she has accomplished and learned this year.  Her empathy and sweetness shines through in her relationships and interactions with others.  Her sense of humor and beauty brightens our lives.  She's my flower, my Greta Rose.

You recognize her very well,
what a boon... celestial bliss.

Love!

Happy birthday to your lovely girl. Mine is nine. It is such a sweet time of childhood blended with a deeper knowing. Her new haircut is very chic. Like mother, like daughter. X

Happy birthday to the brilliant girl!Crocheting? Looks like she'll be an artist like her mom is...

By the way, my little cousin loves the beach crystals you sent me from Marblehead and she began beachcomibing since she first saw them. Today she showed me a big jar full of them!

Big kisses, and have a lovely week you all:)
