scenes from a birthday…

See this girl.

This girl turned 17 today…

Only yesterday this girl was learning to swing on her own.

This girl is Courtney Anne Washington.

It has been a joy to celebrate our sweet Courtney…or as she is affectionately known as…Nee Nee or Coco or just simply Court…however you say it…everything’s golden when you spend time with this girl.

These were some of the sights of the past couple of days…

Oh how Court and I adore macaroons…we triedΒ  lavender, pistachio, coffee and chocolate…but of course.

Dinner out…at a favorite place…

A little something to make the wait for food fly…

Fun questions…like these…

Everyone got in on the questions…

The sisters shared some killer mac and cheese…we all
know what they will be having for lunch tomorrow…

We headed home and waited for “things” to settle before
we dove into this…

What lies beneath?

Oreo bliss…

Official birthday today…but it won’t end today…
tomorrow brings a midnight movie with Court’s
dear friend Liz…

May this year bring you nothing but joy at the most
simple and profound times and may your days be
full of revealed dreams…
I love you Courtney Anne…
I will spare you singingΒ  “your song”…but you and
I both know it…and it is as true as when I sang it to you
as a wee babe!

    What are you doing snapping? : ) This was the sweetest… I was sitting here reading and thinking about my children…. so wonderful that you are enjoying this time with them. Really appreciating and being in their presence. Love being even on the “fringe” listening and watching your story… song. xo
