I do not post many personal photos here but when your daughter turns 1, wears a crown and throws herself on to a new stuffed teddy bear that is her size, it’s an easy instinct to want to share it with the world.
I went into this year thinking that I would have all this great wisdom to share with my daughter. That I would be perpetually teaching. Boy was I wrong. And oh, how lucky am I. This little sprite has been the greatest teacher I have ever had and in one trip around the sun with her, I have learned more about myself, my love, this life, this earth and all the things that inhabit it, breathing and not.
My gift to my daughter on her first birthday is my eternal and profound thanks for allowing me to be part of this blessed year with her and to experience all that she has to offer. My heart if is full each and every day and my laughter is deeper and my body wants to dance whenever I am with her.
It has been a year of magic.
Thank you, Wish! Thank you @satyabunny for supporting our daughter so selflessly this year to allow her to blossom the way she already has.
