Dear Lola, 

My hope for you is that you have a few people in your life where;

No words need to be spoken to understand exactly what you're both thinking.

Someone who finishes your sentences, or you both say the same thing at exactly the same time.

Someone you laugh with till there are tears.... everyday.

Someone you can be your whole & complete self with.

Someone you could spend all day with and still have things to talk about.

Someone who listens & truly cares.

Someone to get excited about seeing every single day.

A best friend.

For me, one of those people is my sister, your Auntie Jules.

Today is her birthday, and although we hope she knows how much we love her, we will say it again, because we could never say it enough. We love you Jules.... too much, as you would say Lola - and we can't wait to spend every year with you xxx



  1. Lovely post Ash! And Happy Birthday Julia! The pictures are great, your Mum looks so beautiful and you two are so cute! You're very lucky, I've always been envious of you and our Mum's for that sister kind of bond. Like being a parent, I'm sure you can't explain what it is like and what it means to someone to who doesn't have it. I'm sure Lola and Edie will be like sisters to each other! xox

  2. I think it's so wonderful that you can have that sort of bond with other people too, that aren't your sister. Like with your partner or your children. Just look at our Oma for instance, she has that special bond with her two daughters. I'm sure you and Joni will have it too. So much to look forward to with our beautiful daughters :) xxx
