We returned to Warkworth today to help celebrate Mandy’s birthday with Nathan and her friends. It is lovely to receive an invite to return to a household, and the girls loved the buzz of the party atmosphere and (of course), the cake and candles!

It was lovely to come back to Warkworth to celebrate Mandy's birthday with Nathan and their friends.

Mandy and Nathan, July 2011
Happy birthday, Mandy! The coming year will be full of many blessings.

We enjoyed meeting more of Mandy’s friends and Nathan’s mother Bonnie Low, an acclaimed musician who is still developing interesting projects. We’d heard so much about Bonnie from both Nathan and Mandy that it was very fulfilling to meet the woman behind the legends!
