Our dear Beatrix Gracie has now completed her first trip around the sun. How quickly the time has gone; how much we’ve all grown and changed!

I keep thinking that last year at this time, this was happening…and now I’ve been a mom for a year! Wow.

Happy first birthday to my very beautiful, sweet daughter – my greatest gift and best teacher. I love you so much.

Here’s our beautiful day in pictures…

Carrot cupcakes!

A special card and message from our lovely cartoonist friend

Cards from the grandparents

Bunting! Bea loves bunting.

Our special marigold fairy

A bee for Bea from our lovely next door neighbour

Pondering the past year…here’s to many more joyous ones to come, my sweet pea!
