6/365 + Happy Birthday Brenda

14 years ago today I gave birth to the most precious gift, my daughter Brenda. Unfortunately I dont have ANY photos of her day, since at 8:30 this morning, I dropped her at church for the youth camp, and she hasn't been seen or heard of since. We will have cake and a special dinner on Sunday when she gets back. It feels funny to have her birthday without her, lol, but I guess it is a foreshadowing of things to come.

Being summer in South Africa, and my town being one of the hottest places, I didn't think that I would come across much frost today, (lol) and was looking for a substitute photo to take today, when I noticed some FROST! Here, on the side of the strawberry daiquiri that I opened in celebration of being the mother of a 14 year old. I didnt have any pretty umbrellas or straws to add, so I took a picture of it next to the only Christmas Decoration that is still out. (I didnt think this guy would last the year in a box!) For, anyone who knows me well, that is huge. Mostly we take our decorations down on the 6th, but there are bits and pieces that keep getting forgotten and are sometimes out for months, in fact, sometimes they even last the year!

And, on another note, I got a phone call to say that this little guy started walking today. I only missed it by a day and a half.


  1. Oooh yum to your frosted drink! And how gorgeous he?! Congratulations to your daughter too :)

  2. Wow that drink looks good. Happy Birthday Brenda.

  3. Strawberry daiquiri is delicious. My youngest will also be 14 in November. Happy birthday and have a nice party.
