Birthday Blessings

I'm so thankful for the birthday blessings I received this year.It was a special time of celebration with my family. I thought I'd share a few of my special gifts with you. I hope you enjoy. :)

I just received this special necklace in the mail from my friend Melissa yesterday. I absolutely love it Melissa! Thank you so much.

These are a few of the gifts I got from my parents.
Thank you so much to my wonderful mom and dad. I really appreciate it.

I am looking forward to reading these books. I have wanted to read the Jane Austen books for awhile as well as Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.

I love sending letters to my friends and sealing them with a wax seal. So thankful for my new stamps and parchment paper.

My cousin Holly went to London a couple weeks ago and surprised me with a lovely tea cup and saucer as well as a "London"keychain . While she was there she sent me a postcard from London. :) I can't wait to go there one day. Until then I can drink my english tea and dream.

Here is a gift from my brother Josh. :) He knows me so well. He got me the perfect wallet.

This is a gift from my brother Joe. It has a journal,stationery,and pen set. He also gave me a tea cup which is pictured below.

My grandparents gave me a "Paris" box full of writing supplies,cup, and book. I'm using the box to store letters. :)

Flowers..... Finally some color!

Hi everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday. I thought I would share with you some pictures I took yesterday. :) I have really been enjoying photography.

I really like the way this picture turned out.

I saved my favorite for last. This is a flower tree that only blooms in May. It has always been my birthday week but this year it is a little late. I have really been enjoying it.

I will be writing a birthday post soon. Sorry I haven't written one yet. Hopefully I'll do one tomorrow. :) Thanks to all of the girls who wished me a happy birthday. I really appreciated it . You are all so sweet. :)

Saying Goodbye....

To being 14. Tomorrow I will turn 15! I am so excited.

This past year I have gotten to know some very nice girls through blogging and letter writing. Including, Grace ,Liz , Kendra , Hannah , Anna , Laura , and many others.They are wonderful friends. It has been so much fun getting to know them .It has also been a blessing to get to know my friend Melissa more. It's funny that after being friends for 2 years we still find things out about each other.

Farewell to being 14 . Hello to being 15! :)
