While I’m busy working away on decorations for Chloe’s 1st birthday party, I may hold off on sharing too many sneak peeks before the big day. Let me just say, though, that all of this crafting and designing is a blast for me. Crafting and creativity is in my blood, and it does far more for me than a massage or pedicure ever could. For real. Don’t tell my husband, though. I may still want that massage!
So about this birthday party thing…well, not only do I have an excellent outlet for my creativity, but I’m also having a blast designing party supplies that are lovely and unique for my little girl’s special occasion. Okay, so admittedly, we all know the first birthday party is really about the parents. The kids only care about smashing the cake, and even that is likely beyond them, but still…us big kids might as well have our fun, too. 🙂
In the meantime, I thought I would share a little recap of my weekend in photos. If you’re a personal Facebook friend of mine, you may have already seen some of these pics. I hope you don’t mind the recap.
If you’re from Minnesota, it goes without saying that this past weekend was absolutely gorgeous. For my husband and I, we adventured up to Duluth for the Northshore Inline Marathon that my husband races in every year. He placed 4th at this race, which is excellent, and I couldn’t be more proud of him.
My handsome hubby is the hardest working, most-dedicated man I know. He trains HARD day in and day out, and his drive to succeed continues to amaze me. Did I mention that he’s a pretty wonderful husband and daddy, too?
In other business, we hit up the apple orchard. This is hands down our favorite activity of the season. We never miss it. It’s no secret that fall is my favorite time of year. Throw in a little apple picking, a hay ride or two, and we’re talking good stuff!
Here Chloe is with her cousin Juliet. Juliet is just 4 months younger than Chloe, and it’s been so fun for Ron’s sister Jenna and I to have these two little sweeties so close together.
Check out this adorable, hand-knit sweater that a friend of mine gave Chloe. How cute is that?!
And, of course, one of my favorite pics from the weekend is Chloe greeting her daddy after he finished his big race. She adores her daddy, and it shows!
I’m off for now, but I hope you all have a wonderful day! Stay tuned for more tutorials and party crafting ideas coming down the pipeline.
