Dear Michelle ,
you didn't really think I would
pass up this opportunity to embarrass you, did you?
Not after doing the same to Sara anyway.

I hope you do have a lovely birthday,
either today or whenever you have time to celebrate it.
Have a great day at Uni. and remember that
even if it's a tiring day,
it won't be nearly as tiring as it was for me ** years ago.

No, I'm not going to write a 'Birth Story'
- I belong to the old school -
but I did enjoy your story about Shay's birth.
I love you and thank you for being the wonderful daughter that you are.

I love the way you posted the photos...very creative indeed. I wish I would have thought of that for my birtday post. I had such a difficult time choosing which photos to use this morning. I'll just have to remember this.

I've perused your site before, but I don't know if I ever stopped to comment. Thought I'd let you know that I have been here and like reading what you have to say...I also loved your lake photos...they were beautiful.

Photo collages are the way to go: a lovely way to give a "snapshot" of someone's life so far.

Happy Birthday, Michelle!

What a great picture collage...I've never seen this done before, Perhaps my daughter would like to make one of these for her son. She made a photo collage that is a collection of the baby's hand, foot..etc. This is a lovely tribute to your daughter's Birthday! So special.
