Birthday Memories

I can’t believe my sweet middle child is already nine.

This past Saturday she had some friends over for some birthday party fun…

  • we went for some frozen yogurt treats
  • splashed around in the pool
  • decorated cupcakes
  • and sang “Happy Birthday” (very fast and very loud)
  • ordered some pizza and yummy garlic rolls
  • had a slumber party
  • for breakfast the next morning… decadent cinnamon rolls.

Another year older and more grown-up with each day. My beautiful girl, with her pretty smile, bright blue eyes and sweet, sweet heart. So loved by all. But most of all by her daddy and I!!!

Susi is a wife, mom, photography lover and fan of all things social media, especially Instagram. She was born and raised in Germany, moved to the US with her family when she was 16 and (finally) became an American citizen in January 2012. She lives with her family in South Florida and loves the beach and never gets tired of watching another pretty sunset.


  1. Isn’t it amazing how fast they grow up?
    My daughter is starting High School this year, I can hardly believe it!
    That’s a great picture, looks like they had a wonderful time!

    • It is amazing. My son is starting middle school in the fall and I can’t quite believe it. Seems like yesterday I dropped him off for his first day of Kindergarten.

  2. My daughter just turned nine, too! It’s such a great age: grown, but still innocent and sweet! Looks like a great birthday celebration with some dear friends!

    • Yes, I kept it small… too much drama otherwise. This was a great group and they all got along really well. 9 is a pretty nice age… Thanks for stopping by. :)

  3. You couldn’t have done one more nice thing for her. That was a fabulous party! Happy Birthday to your girl!

    • Thank you, Liz. She did have a good time and so did her friends. I love doing stuff like this for her. :)

  4. It looks like she had an elegant tea party, too. How wonderful. And cupcakes are the best!

  5. PS — I had to backtrack here manually. I think something may have gone wrong with your linkup? Or maybe it’s just me?

  6. It sounds like the perfect birthday. What a beautiful memory to capture!
