I began planning her party last summer. Yes, she was three months old and I was planning her first birthday party. That's how I roll. Well, I began planning early because I knew that once the school year started, I would be gogogo and I wouldn't have time to decide what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. So yes, the planning process began when she was three months old! I decided on a theme ("tweet one") and handmade all the invitations over the summer. From that point, planning was put on hold until about March, when Sophia was 11 months old! I already had the hard part figured out - the theme. And I had already done the time consuming thing - made the invitations. So now I had to put everything together. As you can see, I went with a rustic chic style to this theme. I wanted it to be girly and classy!

I know I said this wouldn't be emotional but I just want to say that can't believe how quickly we hit this milestone ... it all seems like a blur. I'm so thankful that I have so many pictures (on my hard drive and on my walls or in albums) and videos to look back on because these moments happen so quickly it's easy to forget them. We live in an age where people are constantly taking pictures digitally with their cameras or on their phones. It is so easy for those files to get lost and forgotten. The reason for capturing moments is to relive them every now and then.
So go ahead take a look at some old photos, I guarantee it will make you smile.
