I love birthdays. Scratch that, I'm obsessed with birthdays as hubby would say. The cake, the invitations, the party hats, the planning, the favors, the gift wrapping, finding the perfect gift - I love it all! And I love going all out to make sure the ocassion is just a perfect celebration of someone's life. Friends make fun of me because I write down all my party planning ideas in my little notebook and carry it with me just in case something occurs to me at any given point. Since having Grace, birthdays have taken on a new meaning. Not only a time to celebrate life, but a time to celebrate milestones, accomplishments and give thanks for the little things that matter most. Okay, before I get all sentimental and stuff, let me just say that as much as I love birthdays, I really, really, really, really, really (you get the picture) LOVE cupcakes! What's not to love about sweet little yummies decorated with sprinkles perfectly arranged in vintage cake stands and what not...oh, how I love cupcakes. Which is why I chose "cupcakes" as the theme for Grace's first birthday. How perfect, a little yummy for my little yummy! Grace had a blast as you can see. I think she had almost as much fun as me! And yes, I've already selected a theme for next year's birthday so let the planning begin!!!
