The Birthday Girl

So it was Hope's 18th birthday 
a couple of days ago.
I know it's a bit of a cliche to say it,
but really, where have the years gone?!

Family Urbani went out for a lovely meal
to celebrate.
Unfortunately, the birthday girl had a bit
 of a cold but she soldiered through.

(blurred/soft focus works best for me these days!)
(me and my girl)
There was much laughter
(especially when Hope noticed that I'd
tipped head first into my handbag -
alcohol not to blame!)
lots of reminiscing 
talk of the exciting times ahead.

Looks like a fab night - but you'd tipped what head first into your handbag Jo - or was your bag so big that you physically tipped yourself!

I was reaching down to my handbag, which was on the floor, and lost balance, toppled over - literally falling head first into my handbag :D

Sorry...I had to laugh at you tipping head first into your bag....thought I was the only one who did things like that!
Congrats to Hope on her 18th and that looks like a wonderful evening out.
Hugs xx

Yep. Sat here chuckling at that mental image.

Blimey but you two are so similar - you could be sisters! Which must mean you don't look much older than 18 Jo ;)

I can't believe my baby will be 18 in April. Doesn't seem possible. I still feel about that age in my head!

Belated birthday wishes to Hope.
Lovely family photos.
It'll be that falling over juice that made you topple over into your handbag :)
