My own: Party prep

It’s still surreal, really.  I have to remind myself frequently where I’m at in life.  I’m a daughter. I’m a wife. I’m a mother.  I’m a photographer.  It’s so crazy–you dream about things in your future for so long, and they always seem just that, dreams.  And then they happen, and it’s such a surreal feeling.

My baby turns 1 this month.  August 20th is her birthday.  But since my mom and dad are in town, we are having a birthday bash this weekend.  And party planning is SO fun.  Especially for this birthday.  One is a milestone for all babies.  And it’s deservedly celebrated as such.  But to us this one is so special.  Our baby didn’t come into the world screaming and eating.  And her birth wasn’t the day of my life I’d always imagined.  (you can read more about it here)  So to me, this is a milestone I want to do right.  I really want to celebrate and scream “WE DID IT!” “LOOK AT MY BEAUTIFUL BABY GIRL!”  And so we will.  And I can’t wait.  I am so happy that my parents will be here to celebrate with us from Florida, and that my in-laws will help us party as well.  It will be perfect…did I say I can’t wait?

I’ll share some details from the party in the coming weeks–so check back 🙂

Hope you all have a great week, and hey, hug someone you love today okay?
