On the weekend, we reveled in the joy and tenacity that is our girl - our girl who is suddenly three years old! Sweet little ladies Cora, Grace, Hallie, Lila and Hazel {and their beautiful mamas} joined us for a 'girls only' celebration in the woods - five minutes from our home and the most perfect setting for our eclectic, whimsical tea party...

Dearest Sage,

Despite the moon orbiting us for yet another year of your life, it's really the stars you hold in your palm. I lay in bed with you every evening and as your fingers entwine my hair, I whisper to you of life's possibilities. Perhaps you fall asleep and dream of tangerine mountains and magnolia oceans, but most certainly of a world where sentences always end in an ellipsis. Your wisdom and beauty transcends your short time earth-side, yet there are moments in our everyday where you are still very much my baby. You are a cautious danger-seeker and an intrepid gypsy - the world waits with baited breath as you plunge further and further into this wonderland that is your existence.

My spirited babe, life with you is a wild carousal ride, and I love you with all that I am,
Mama   xx
