Gabrielle is turning Vintage!

posted by Mommy

Twenty years ago today, I was awaiting the birth of my first child, in our little rented townhouse in Sunnyvale, CA.
It was a cool rainy day, but full of bright hope for this first-time mother.
At 11:19 p.m., the Lord brought her forth, and we named her Gabrielle Kara:

Gabrielle : "God is my strength"
Kara : "dear one"

From a tiny 5 lb. 15 oz. babe with a swath of jet black hair and large dark knowing eyes, she has grown to be such a lovely woman of God, filled with grace, ever growing, working with her hands in delight, organizing, managing, and creating within her family sphere.

Happy 20th Birthday, my precious daughter! I love you more than my feeble words can convey. How blessed I am to have such a precious arrow in my home.

Many, many happy returns of the day, Gabrielle!

Congratulations on your "vintage-hood" also. I'll be looking for the Etsy listing... : P.

My love to you on your birthday-

I recently sent you and your sister a note, but another one will be out shortly! <3

Much love and blessings my dear and would love to hear what y'all did to celebrate!

And congrats to the happy mother of this sweet spirit! :)
Are you sure you don't want to list her on Etsy....because I would buy her up in a heartbeat! hahaha
