This weekend was extra special since we got to celebrate the big #2!! I can’t believe how fast time is flying by and I’m not sure if I want it to continue at this pace (slow.down.please). However, this was by far my favorite out of the two parties this year. We were able to celebrate in our new home and we had a bounce house! Thanks to Mike (he truly saved the party this year) we ended up renting one out while I had a series of meltdowns since I was so far behind on planning.
Though I had a Pinterest board for this event and I had talked about it; I just wasn’t ready or prepared as much as I had hoped to be. I scrambled for a theme since Kai is into several different things. Would it be cars? dancing? wrestling? I just couldn’t decide until as of recently he has fallen in love with matchbox cars – AHA! So with a simple car theme we made this party happen from start to finish. It was a great combination of house welcoming and birthday party all at once. Our dearest of friends came and I realized just how grateful and blessed we are to be surrounded by authentic friendship. I even stepped out a little in style since I’ve been developing my eye for thrifted goods!
With lots of bouncing, laughter, and heartfelt embraces we celebrated the sweetest gift I’ve ever been given.
