Happy Birthday Victoria!

20 years ago today, 29th May our sweet little daughter Victoria was born.
We were so happy.
I thought all along I was going to have a little girl and then the last month a friend said oh no you are going to have a boy.
My husband comes from a family of 5 boys so having a girl may have been a slim chance.

Victoria is now in her final year of doing a Bachelor of Fashion Design.
We are proud of her and seems only the other day she was the little baby girl that came into our family.
How easily we forget where 20 years went!

Happy birthday Sweet one.
We are going out for a Japanese meal for lunch to celebrate her birthday.

Have a great weekend

  18. Hi Carolyn...Happy Birthday to your daughter, Victoria. The years do pass by quickly...although, I am happy at this stage of my life. I don't know if I would have the enjoy to have little ones around all the time!!

    The suitcase in the previous post is gorgeous! Maybe I could find a very plain one and paint it like lovely.

    Hope you are well...Enjoy your day!
    Hugs, Nancy

  19. Thanks Nancy for visiting and wishing
    Victoria a happy birthday.

    I am with you there at not having the energy to run around after little ones.
    I am glad that they are at an age where they can drive the car and be more independant.
