The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible. ~Vladimir Nabakov

Happy Birthday with one amazing camera!

While I celebrate the day my mom gave me life and brought me into this world, it has indeed became a day now that I'm older a day for me to do just that.  Sometimes we shift things around a little & have to do it a day before and yet it still feels just same.

Amazing how we 'grow' up and priorities change.  It isn't about gifts at all it is simply being able to have the privilege to be with the ones we love, while they are with us.  For me, on my birthdays, I celebrate my mom & her life too because if it wasn't for her, my life wouldn't be.

Being just a kid always resonates in the soul and even though I'm not a little girl anymore, my mom made me feel in absolute amazement today and so happy.  My eyes filled with tears.

This Nikon moment has been stolen by this amazing Canon and I didn't mind at all.
Her GIFT to me that I will never forget and - yes - it's a cake.

Incredible and amazing.  She poured 15 hours of labour love into this baby.  I'm the luckiest lady on the planet to have a mom like mine and she shows me every time she gets the chance.  I will never forget the joy in her face as I opened it.  For both, I'm sure it was priceless picture moment.

I think the universe is trying to tell me that this year will be pretty amazing.  

I love you so much mom.  Thank you for my incredible life.
