happy birthday, beautiful

Esme is a year old today!

Part of a song that keeps playing in my head goes…

Oh, undeserved sweetness and light,
stay by my side.
We will go out in the morning now,
a crown of maple leaves, a crown of flowers
circling your sweet head.
Happy birthday, beautiful,
in the streets of this day
play a song, play a song.

(By The Innocence Mission.)

    Happy Birthday Esme! I love that song–and all that it expresses about the gift of one year with your beautiful Esme.

    Happy Birthday, Sweet and Dear Esme! 🙂
    One year! I’m sure you are a very philosophical girl, so think: A YEAR OLD girl! For me it’s hard to comprehend… How beautiful!
