Sunday Snaps And A Very Happy Birthday!


Today is the  birthday of someone who is very close to my heart.  Yes, it's daughter number 1's birthday today. 



"A daughter is a day brightener and a heart warmer". ~Author Unknown

"What the daughter does, the mother did". ~Jewish Proverb.  (She'll love that one. Hee Hee!).

"Daughters are like flowers, they fill the world with beauty, and sometimes attract pests". ~Author Unknown.  (True!)


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A LOVING AND CARING DAUGHTER.

I would like to wish all the dads out there a very happy Fathers Day.  I hope you get to be spoilt a little bit today!  Special mention, of course, to my own hubby on his special day.


Hope you're all having a lovely weekend wherever you are.

I love to look at your family's then and now photos, Thisisme. I already wished daughter #1 a happy birthday on her own site a couple of days ago but I am doing it again on yours. You can be so proud of both of your girls, your lovely grands and your fine husband. Have a wonderful Sunday, dear friend!

"What the daughter does, the mother did". I love this verse really much♡♡♡ I think I learned whole house-hold things from seeing what my mother did.
And also loved,inspired by my father.
Greeting to your lovely daughter from Japan, Love, Orchid.

Happy Birthday to your Daughter! :) :)
I have said it before, and I'm going to say it again- You post some of the best pictures ever. I can always imagine a beautiful story behind each one. I loved the last photograph the best. It was so sweet, and perfect for Father's Day.. :) :)

Happy birthday to your dear daughter and Happy Father's Day to your husband. And to be honest seeing the first picture, you do look a lot alike :)

Desiree said...

What lovely pictures! Priceless memories of times past. Happy Birthday to Daughter No 1...so glad to see you've been baking again! Hope your Hubby's Father's Day has been lots of fun, too...and that since you didn't bake him his own cake, he got a generous helping of hers!

Hope your hubs enjoys his Father's Day.

Shady - Hi dear friend. I do hope that someone is making your day a bit special over there in Florida. You certainly deserve it! Thank you for your kind comments.

Orchid - Thank you so much for popping by always from Japan! My daughters tell me that I am turning into their grandma. I just smile and say that, one day, they will turn into ME! Hee Hee!!

Jo-Anne Rambling - yes, that's a good saying, isn't it? Hoping that all is well in your part of the world.

PencilGirl - thank you so much, and I'm pleased that you enjoy the photos. We all missed you when you weren't around!!

Claudia - Hope you are having a relaxing weekend my friend, because I know just what a busy life you lead, travelling here and there for work! Thank you for your kind comments, as always.

Desiree - Hi there! Yes, I was up all night making those little cupcakes! I hope my daughter realizes that some of them have the Chanel logo on them, as she writes her own Fashion Blog! Thank you for always dropping by my friend.

SkippyMom - greetings from across the pond!! Thank you, and I hope that Pooldad has a special day too. Hugs.

A lovely family tribute, Happy birthday daughter No 1, great photos and love the new banner. If you have time sometime would you send me a simple lesson on how to do this as I always seem to make a mess of it when I try to change mine. :(

Linda O'Connell said...

The Kewish quote says it all! Love your photos. Happy birthday to your daughter. Enjoy this day.

Olive Cooper said...

Daughters are so special to us. I wish her a blessed and fine day♥

Thisisme. said...

LindyLouMac in Italy - thanks Linda! Yes, I will e-mail you later re. the banner. It really is very simple - otherwise I certainly wouldn't be able to do it!! LOL! Hope it's nice and warm over there in Italy.

Linda - yes, I like the Jewish quote as well. Lovely to see you here today, and thank you so much for your comments.

Olive - you are SO right = daughters are such a blessing, and I am doubly blessed with my two!

Looking at photo number 3, I'd say we're definitely like a fine wine and have improved with age!!

Odie Langley said...

A big happy birthday to daughter #1 from across the pond. I also enjoy seeing the pictures taken long ago seeing how my friends have changed. So far it has been a very restful and good weekend and I hope your week ahead will be filled with joy and happiness.

Gawgus-things - you were gawgus then, and you're gawgus now!!

Odie - thank you so much my friend. I really do appreciate how you always pop by to leave a nice comment for me. Likewise, I hope you and Linday (not forgetting little Rocky) also have a peaceful week. I do hope that Linda is a little more comfortable now after her op.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your lovely daughter. Is that you in the swimsuit? Love the quotations, especially the first and the last! Thankyou so much for your lovely comments and for taking part in my giveaway, and putting the button on your sidebar, you are most kind. Have a wonderful week. Oh, my hubby and I went to the Pub, then he spied a male neighbour, got all giddy and sent me home to make the dinner! (is that being spoilt?)Love Linda x
