happy birthday, sweet girl!
I love you, my little SJO
walking into Cracker Barrel…
seeing everyone for the first time!
she loved her balloons and table decorations

on to the next fun-stop of the day… downtown Saint Joe!

‘take my picture, Mom!’
we took a rest and took in the sights on the bluff

What a extraordinarily fun day we had! Birthday breakfast has become a treasured tradition–a day that I so look forward to in celebrating my sweet girl each year.
While the logistics of this year were undeniably different–we were in a restaurant, not our home, we still had a wonderful time and made sweet memories. I feel overwhelmed with gratitude for the family that we’re blessed with–and the daughter that God has entrusted Griffin and I with.
