i remember 22 years ago today hoping that you would be born on my birthday (23rd) but you had other plans and arrived on the 20th instead. we lived in beaudesert at the time and, while some thought i had named you after the town, you were actually named after a character from a romance novel i had read.
you on your 1st birthday with remnants of cake on your face

don't you look cute with your floaties on

you and your younger brother, reece, became inseparable as you were growing up. there is only 18 months between you both and you always looked out for him.
reece and you (around 4 years old)

you around 5 years old
YAY for turtle power!!!

you around 10 years old here

in high-school, you took up an interest in photography and won awards of excellence for your art and photographic work.

just like me, you adore animals and detest cruelty of any kind towards them

a recent trip out to the property to feed brutus

i'm so proud of the caring and responsible young man you are today.


love always, mum xo
