Today is a VERY special day!! It is our eldest son's 20th birthday!!!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARAN!!!!
It seems only yesterday that I held my new born baby son in my arms and he winked (yes winked!! as his new baby eyes couldn't keep both open at the same time - it was sooooo cute!!) up at me with those adorable big blue eyes!! Oh yes, from the word go he was a charmer!!
The night of Aran's graduation
They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree!! Aran has just finished first year in College - guess what he's studying??? Furniture Design & Manufacture!!!! The College had an exhibition of the all the student's work at the end of the year, we had a great night and I was SO excited to see Aran's pieces having seen the work in progress throughout the year. I LOVE them!!!!!
Aran's Floor Lamp (it's about 6 foot high) - isn't it cool!!!
Aran's side table - sycamore with walnut inlay and bentwood legs . . . I LOVE how this piece turned out as I saw how much work went in to each step of the process . . .
Aran working getting the new shop ready . . .
Twenty years has flown by and that little baby has matured in to a wonderful young man. We are SOOOOOO proud of him, he is a loving, caring, mature, loyal, dependable and hard working. I won't embarrass him by gushing any more but our family has had a tough few years and Aran has been a rock through it all and has gained respect and admiration from everyone who knows him. So, hope you have a VERY Happy Birthday Aran - you deserve every happiness Life has to offer!
