Like Bill, I said screw it and had a good old cry when Stan handed his precious gift to our girl at dinner.
He had made this wooden bowl for her from a 148-year old special tree that has since been replanted from the tree's own grafts.
The bowl is absolutely beautiful just like our girl (of course I am biased.)
May her life be as remarkable as the tree's life and may she give joy to as many people as the tree has.
