Her first day as a teenager

Her first day as a teenager, the first day of Spring
She arrived on her due date, without too much haste
A perfect size, not too big not too small and a head of black hair
It's been amazing to watch you grow into the beautiful young woman you are today
To see your personality shine and your interests grow and develop
You love to read, to write and draw
To cook anything sweet, to create cookbooks, to edit pictures and dress feminine 
You are passionate about helping others and like to aid a good cause
We are proud of you Miss 13 and love you lots.
Happy Birthday!

  23. Happy belated birthday to your beautiful teenager... beautiful on the inside and the outside :)

    Catherine, all the party details look amazing. I can spy some decorating ideas I'd been thinking of for Sophie's upcoming party too (bunting, daisies, picnic blanket/pillows) and can see a few other ideas of yours I might have to borrow too. The party looks perfect for a 13 year old.

    Can't believe your big girl arrived on her due date... very rare! x
