Every year for Emma's birthday her Daddy and I are going to give her a rose
with a ribbon tied around it for each year she has blessed us with her beautiful smile.
Obviously this year's rose only had one ribbon tied around it,
and next year's will have two, and so on for each following year.
This year's rose is currently hanging upside down and drying out,
which I will do with each birthday rose we give her.
In just a few short years she will have a very meaningful bouquet.
I look forward to going through each rose with her when she is older
and telling her the special story that goes along with that particular birthday and year.
