Hi everyone, I hope you all are doing OK.
Today I wanted to share with you my weekend, as it was my oldest daughters birthday, she turned 18. I am the proudest mum, she has grown up to be the most beautiful, loving, caring, artistic, creative woman I know.
While most 18 years want to go out and party, she decided to have her birthday with just her family. She’s not one to go out she just likes to be with family, I am very lucky and so grateful she wants to be with me/us.
She decided she wanted to get a tattoo done for her birthday. I know some people don’t like tattoos, but I have a few and can’t be judgmental. Anyway, the tattoo she got was one I designed for both of us. It is her favourite song from when she was a child, I have the first part and she has the second part.
“You Are My Sunshine”. “My Only Sunshine”
This is the song we have along with a sunflower, the words become the stem of the sunflower. She wanted the tattoo to be done to keep our bond permanent. Our bond would never be broken no matter what anyway, she means the world to me. She just wanted something she could have with her everywhere she went, as though I was there.
The day started off with presents along with breakfast which was bacon on toast, then off to do the tattoos, then lunch at a Chinese restaurant, then off to her favourite place for a bit of relaxation the beach, then Pizza and a movie for dinner followed by a cake for supper.
I loved having the chance to spend the day with her, I feel like the luckiest mum in the world.
