A Unique Birthday Gift Idea

A couple days before Miss A's birthday, she received a small package in the mail. It was a birthday gift from a very caring friend Cathleen. We opened to find a small bag of Oxalis Regnelli, aka Lucky Shamrock bulbs.

The message said,
Happy 1st Birthday, Miss A! I hope you know how much charm you have brought to this world. Have Mommy and Daddy plant these shamrocks to bless you and bring you the treasures you brought them. XO Cathleen
This is such a unique birthday gift idea!

We will definitely be planting these soon in a cute little pot on the window sill above the kitchen sink. Perfect place to show off how lucky we are to have such a healthy, precious, happy little daughter in our lives. I honestly have a difficult time imagining my life before she was born. When I can picture how "fun and free" it was, I don't like my life as much as I remember. She has definitely added some significant charm and treasure to our lives.

We love you Miss A! <3

Thank you Cathleen once again for the wonderful birthday gift for Miss A's one year celebration. For those interested in a broad range of inspiring life topics and some strong, intelligent opinions, Cathleen is a passionate writer that blogs HeRe. She is someone that inspires me to be a better person, so I think you could learn at least a little from what she has to say.  :]


  1. Monica you made me cry! You inspire me in so many ways, too.

    1. I didn't mean to make you cry! Everything I said was true. :) Thanks once again.

  2. That's a really unique and thoughtful birthday gift idea! Kudos to Cathleen!


Thanks for reading!
