I miss this girl...

Here she is...standing out in the pouring rain, leggings and boots and a funky dress. Silly girl! It's the rainy season in San Miguel.

This is such an interesting picture. She is sitting in front of the light over her bed in her beautiful room in San Miguel. She looks quite angelic, doesn't she? She is not perfect, nor am I, but she is one of the kindest, most nurturing people I have known...and she is my daughter.

I know she is hardly a girl anymore...but she is my girl, always. When we are together, we are every age. Young and silly, old and wise. There is something that is so special about having a daughter,

She will be back in a week, full of exciting tales and improved Spanish. Right now, it seems like a million years away.

Can I say it again? I miss this girl...


  1. I agree, it feels awful when loved ones are away - I always miss my daughter terribly when she's at summer camp. But luckily, they come back, and when they do...it's wonderful x's 10!

  2. Ohhhh.....I know, I know! I miss my daughter so much some times it hurts. But, she is 34 and been out of the house since college. But, we talk every day and get together as much as we can.....Your daughter is beautiful. I love the shot with the light behind her head. It is great!

  3. That's cuz she is fabulous!!!!!

  4. Awww, what a sweet, sweet post!
    I'm missing my girl too, so I know how you feel on that front.
    xoxo, Cerri

  5. such a fabulous girl she is, Suz!! Love the photos. So much personality there!!!!

  6. You are so sweet! I loved San Miguel when I visited while studying Spanish is college. Hope she is having a ball and gets back soon! ~Shelley

  7. Oh Suz,
    Such a lovely post...
    I miss my girl too, she moved to VA four years ago and my heart still aches.


  8. Sounds like a lot of us are missing our girls. Mine lives in New Jersey and I don't get to see her nearly enough! What a sweet post-she will feel very loved when she reads it.
    You are one of the kindest people in Blogville...your comments are always so thoughtful and sweet. Thank you for taking the time to visit..I really love it when you stop by.

  9. I am sure you miss her tons...it is hard when our little chickies are away...especially that far!

  10. Absolutely precious post in every way Suz!

    I only have sons, but I AM a daughter and treasure each and every moment with my special Mutti/Mom!

  11. Mmmmmmmmm, daughters, yesssssssss. I so get this post about being every age with your girl. Sigh...I love you Suz.

  12. A week is not so long. She will be back before you know it. I love the jewelry you make. I am especially enamored of the bracelet you made with chain and the steel cut buckle. Just lovely. I also found the concept of the barefoot sandals interesting kinda like jewelry for your feet. a great idea. I wish you and your daughter all the best in your new jewelry venture. Thank you for stopping by to say Hello on my blog.

  13. Aww so sweet:) I have Four girls I miss all the time.........well one is still home (age 13)and we are pretty well "joined" so it's such a blessing:) We just did an overnight trip in fact to a nearby community ~theatre night and some heart to heart time.....nail painting too:) These kids need us Moms~ I'm so glad you are one who knows it doesn't end at 18, and us Moms need these kids too, don't we??!!!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and yes, I do remember you from Silver Bella. Truely look forward to seeing you both again!

  14. This post is soo sweet! And so is your relationship with your daughter!

  15. Beautiful and sweet...and I don't just mean the picture of your daughter! Lucky girl, Lucky mama!!

  16. Oh the LOVE! It's good to be back home and read about all this love between mothers and daughters!
    My mom (Suz) is right- we are able to be every age when we are together. This is something that she has taught me and that serves me in every walk of life to connect with and bring out the best in others. I use it in my therapy work with families and children. I even carried with me to San Miguel- where I charmed and was charmed by many wonderful people!!

    I missed you, too, momma me bear!
