Birthday Wishes

Birthday Wishes

The very first featured photo of this year had to be one of Grace blowing out her candles on her 9th Birthday cake. What I love about the top photo is the smoke billowing from the candles. To me, it is making patterns in the form of the wishes she might be making for this year – I can see a smiling face, a butterfly, ribbons and a swan.

    Happy birthday, Grace! I hope she had a lovely day. And happy new year to you all.

    Hi Victoria, I hope Grace had a fantastic Birthday. It can be hard having a birthday near Christmas when you’re a child, other children may not get shared Christmas/birthday presents, but neither do they get to have twinkly decorations up!

    I love that first picture, with the swirls of smoke and I love the idea of them being wishes!

    I was lucky enough to get a ‘proper’ camera for my birthday/Christmas (I didn’t mind as it was something I wanted and know they are pricey). At the moment I am clueless/petrified of it, but one day I hope to be taking interesting photos like you.

    Wishing you and your family a cracking 2016!

    Yum, her cake looks good. I hope she had a great birthday!

    Love the first photo with the smoke and idea it is capturing Grace’s wishes. Hope you all had a lovely time celebrating! #mysundayphoto

    BEAUTIFUL pictures – loving all that smoke. Looks like those candles were really picking up heat there! HAPPY BIRTHDAY & Happy New Year!
    Wishing you a year full of happiness Vic x

    I think your photo with the smoke swirling is beautiful and I wonder what she wished for?!
    You’re a year ahead of us as we’ve just had Mademoiselle’s 8th birthday. Where does the time go?!

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas and happy new year

    Love the way you’ve captured the smoke from the candles where Grace has blown them out and the pictures you can see in the smoke too. Hope that Grace had a wonderful birthday and wishing you all a very happy new year 🙂
