Sweet 16...

It's Kitty's sweet 16th and it's been such a busy time that both our birthdays this year have kind of flown under the radar.  I don't mind that for myself, but this birthday for her is a special one and I'm feeling kind of sad that it's quietly floated passed.  We wanted to do something special for her, so we headed out to her fav spot in Cape Town, Kalk Bay and bought her her very own old typewriter that she's been dreaming about for ages.


I must say hearing her tick away at it is rather enjoyable, rhythmic and comforting in some strange way.  We have a writer in the house, after all.

As for celebrating this milestone, we have banked this special day and hoping to do something special for her with her friends in the coming month.  I'm so grateful that she's handled that with such maturity and grace.
