Of Birthdays and Backyards

Birthday girl I wanted to share a picture of Sierra on her birthday, and the cake I made for her and Buelo. Everyone seemed to enjoy the cake. It was chocolate buttermilk with buttercream frosting.

Birthday Cake

Sierra looks so beautiful and calm in her picture. It's funny how you can look at someone and not notice how they are changing and growing. I'm so busy with my wild child I don't always stop to take a close look at her. I usually notice how stunning she is when I watch her dance or see her in a picture.

Speaking of pictures, Sierra found this beautiful star shaped flower in the yard. She took a close up shot of it.

It is pretty special, don't you think? Especially when you consider it's roots.

Star Flower

Yes, it's a dandelion. A wildflower that most of my neighbors yank up before they flower. Isn't it wonderful how the things we take for granted can suddenly surprise us and make us look at them in a new way?
