Happy Birthday, Mavis, darling!

on June 25, 2014
My baby girl breaks all the "norms" when you think of girl vs. tomboy - she wears boy clothes, loves to climb, is rough and tumble - her room is painted pink, she adores Lego Friends and Disney Princess movies/dolls.

My baby girl breaks all the “norms” when you think of girl vs. tomboy – she wears boy clothes, loves to climb, is rough and tumble – her room is painted pink, she adores Lego Friends and Disney Princess movies/dolls. This cake is going to blow her mind, she has NO IDEA that when she cuts into her pink glitter cake she is going to find camo! lol

My wife is on a plane this morning and my tummy is a little twisted with that knowledge. She is flying to Nashville for a work meeting and will be flying back tonight – just in time to celebrate my beautiful Mavis, darling!’s tenth birthday with the family. Ten, our youngest daughter is ten. My heart flutters when I write it and my eyes tear up a bit. I’m not sad for her, I am happy for her. She has become one of the coolest little people I know. She has a sense of humor that is distinctly her mother’s, handed down from her Paw-Paw Chris. She has a sense of style that is absolutely her own, pulled from the skater shirts and cargo shorts of Goodwill and Walmart with a twist of glitter tennis shoes. I love her and I am thrilled to be her parent, she is one of God’s biggest blessings in my life.
