THURSDAY POTPOURRI: FIONA THROUGH THE YEARS — HAPPY BIRTHDAY! — FEB. 21

389

Today is my granddaughter Fiona’s sixteenth birthday.  I have a potpourri of images that I love; they remind me of special moments over the years.  In this shot, Fiona is sitting amidst some of my dolls in my old house in the foothills.  Back then, she lived next door in my guesthouse.  I loved having her  close by.

She was about four years old in this photo.

And here are a few special ones that I cherish:

As a toddler, she loved the cat Sebastian.  Here they are (above) curled up in the laundry basket.

A favorite of both birthday girls, Fiona and Aubrey.  Yes, they are cousins, but birthday twins.  Aubrey was sixteen on the 13th.  In the photo above, we enjoyed a special time at the cabin in Big Bear.

And now we see a few of the versions of Fiona as a teenager:

And here’s one of my favorites.  I captured her while she was engrossed in her guitar playing.  A special weekend at my house.

I wish I could spend time with her today, but she and her mom moved to Texas earlier this month, which is a plane ride away.  But not possible right now. However, there is texting.  And we texted this morning and will talk on the phone tonight.

As much as I resisted the whole “texting thing,” I’m grateful for it now!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FIONA!!
