it has been quite some time since i've had the energy and space to write and it feels like a treat to be able to do so this morning. so much has happened in the past weeks, so many stories and new ideas and big, beautiful things. some of which i have on film, others, just experienced, kept only for us.
we kept gus' birthday incredibly simple and sweet and i think he was quite pleased. we had our immediate family over, my mama made a cake, i made two different kinds of enchiladas and spanish rice and i decorated his high chair from clippings from our backyard to make him feel like a king.
there were bubbles and flowers and airplanes and a new radioflyer and pianos and a beautiful speech from my husband (my sensitive, beautiful man) i happened to catch on film.
i don't believe in "pinterest" or "blogger" parties but i do believe in special, heartfelt ones and i truly hope this is what my sweet baby felt.
