Happy birthday, wee Lucy. Five years old today. If you were here right now, I’d give you a big squeeze and let you touch ebony’s fur. But since you are in France, I’ll have to settle for thinking about all of the fun things we will do together in the summer. I baked these cookies for you this morning. And I’ve consumed about twenty-seven of them in your honour.

I hope that when you go to bed this evening, you will dream sweet dreams of all the magic that will be your life.

Know that I am sending you lots of love from my side of the ocean…

    She’s a lucky wee french lassie to have an aunt who is willing to bake her a bag load of cookies like that. And then eat them. All of them. Eat them all right down.

    Yep. Super lucky.

    I know your aunt movita baked you cookies, but you should know that I am baking you MORE THINGS on the Bakery Story game on my iPhone. Someday you will be big enough to have your own iPhone, and your aunt movita and I will be in our 50s and we can all play Bakery Story together.

    Hurry up and grow just a little bit more, because it’ll be a lot of fun.

    little tiny Lucy, happy birthday to you! You have the best aunt ever. And if you decide when you finally have your own iPhone that your aunt and Katherine aren’t cool enough to play Bakery Story with you, well. We’ll talk. because they are both super-awesome.
