aya turned 7 a few days ago! i wanted to take some birthday photos of her and let her choose the location; a field, the beach, forest or the city and she said “city because I’m a city girl mom!”. half way through taking pictures we changed areas so it wasn’t all gritty and came so close to being in an accident. we had a green light and a car was speeding (going well over double the limit) down a huge hill. he ran a red light and hit the car in-front of us going the opposite direction which started spinning in our direction and stopped a couple feet away. if we had been in the intersection 2 seconds earlier we would have been smashed on the side we both sit on. close calls like that are a good reminder of how short life is. we celebrated ayas birthday the next day and it’s crazy to think we could have been in hospital beds or worse. it’s a reminder of how lucky i am to spend everyday with aya who is so positive and cheery, loving and funny! i love this little one who made me a mother!
happiest birthday aya!!
