Happy Birthday to a Real Princess

Ava, I can’t believe you’re five-years-old today, and what a wonderful little girl you are. You’re smart and clever and funny, and you do love princesses.

It’s only appropriate that a big, old royal wedding is taking place today. I’m surprised you weren’t wearing a tiara when you entered the world. I wasn’t surprised when I heard that William and Kate chose your birthday to tie the knot. Never forget! Kate will become a duchess today, but you were born a princess.

Pink is your signature color. Pink, pink and more pink! There simply isn’t enough pink in the world. If we could only paint the White House pink, or the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building, the world would be a better place.

No one should be mistaken. Just because you love pink and princesses does not mean you’re weak. You are not a wimpy princess. Oh no! You are powerful, and I hope you keep that for the rest of your life.

Grandpa and I feel joy every time we see your face. We can not believe our great good luck to have such a wonderful granddaughter. May there always be something in your life that stirs as much passion in your heart as pink and princesses do today. It is the secret to staying forever young.

Here, Joan Baez says it much better… We love you, little girl!

  1. That was great. Thank you very much. We didn’t get to celebrate much on the day because of moving but she still got to see the royal wedding:).
