When Mia was turning 7 she decided she wanted to celebrate in the garden at her grandparents house. I could not have been happier! I have so many wonderful memories in this garden and was pleased to be able to add this celebration to my list.
I am feeling nostalgic at the moment as this home of my childhood was sold many months ago with settlement looming in the next couple of weeks. While I am carrying an overwhelming feeling of sadness over the handing over of our family home I naturally understand the need to move beyond the bricks and mortar and am drawing solace from this quote by Sam Ewing:
“When you finally go back to your old home, you find it wasn’t the old home you missed but your childhood.”
While I will miss this home terribly I know it is my childhood I will always miss more.
This beautiful party in the garden was a wonderful way to celebrate Mia’s Birthday and add to the stockpile of happy memories in our Beautiful Family Home.
