Happy 23rd, to a pink loving girl....

It's my daughter's 23rd birthday today.  She is now the same age I was when she was born.

I thought that it's rather appropriate that today is Pink Saturday over at How Sweet the Sound since my girl is a lover of all things pink.... especially hot pink... fuchsia...

Like all little girls, her hat had pink stripes...

rosy, pink cheeks, with me...

at my brother's wedding in a little pink dress, made by yours truly, complete with hand smocking...

pink nose to match the pink jumpsuit

pink winter cheeks... look closely, there are cows on those sox, even at one we she was destined for Red Gate Farm...

a pink smile for her new brother...

tickled pink in the tub...

a pretty pink princess for Halloween...

pink Keds...

pink, sun kissed faces on vacation...

as my gift to her... we're skipping the awkward "tween" years... she'll thank me later... plus she wasn't feeling the pink during those years...

on grandma's pinkish sofa...

in the pink for a new puppy...

pink lip gloss and best friends...

visiting the University of Washington... with the pink cherry blossoms...

graduation day, from the University of Washington...

all grown up...

and happy with her guy...

wow... the years have gone fast...

Happy 23rd birthday, Krysta Brai.
Love, Mom

    Such a beautiful share. I love your birthday tribute to Krysta. She is gorgeous and what a precious little blonde she was as a little girl. I love the first day photo of you with her. It makes me think of my own with my daughter as well.
