Birthday Girl

Today my Daughter turned 28 years old. Oh my! Just how did this happen? Feels like just yesterday when I was carrying home a 7 lbs bundle of joy dressed in blue lace and ribbons.

We are very proud of how she has matured into a beautiful and smart lady.
She has always been a good child. We have had our yelling spats and made each other cry but all and all she was an easy one to raise. I always wanted a little boy but I'm glad God chose me to have a little girl instead. She is a lot like me and we are best friends. She has never been that teenager that didn't want to be around her mom and dad. At times she would rather sit around the table with us for dinner or go shopping rather than go out with her friends. She went on every vacation with us until just a couple years ago. But she still somehow shows up and that's ok.

She always made good grades, went to church and finished college. Shes a country girl living on her own in the city as a successful business woman. She still drives the little car her dad got for her and made her pay it off. She is proud of that and so are we. She seems to be conservative like us. She doesn't spend her money on expensive things but she does spend a lot on her hair and shoes. But hey, that's just a girl thing.

So later today, we will be meeting up with friends and family for dinner. She picked a place in Belmont called Nellie's. The Jonas Brothers started this place with the inspiration of their grandmother. I heard they have some good Southern Cooking. We have never been there but I'm sure we will all enjoy it especially if there is cake.

  2. WOW what a beauty. Takes after her mama. Happy birthday to a sweet one, FROM ALL REPORTS! We haven't been to Nellie's ourselves but will try it one day. I will look for your report.
    My girl is sorta jealous of you. She was close to her mama and wanted a daughter to pal around with, but it never happened.
    Love sent your way from 'Nellie's Town'.

  6. Happy birthday to your beautiful daughter. I was so sure my first boy was going to be a girl that I was stunned when the doctor said he was a boy. I thought- but what do I do with a boy? I know nothing about boys? (I was the girly sort who totally understands the need for clothes and shoes!) But you're right- God gives us what we need to make our lives complete. My boys have taught me so much about myself and life.
