This past weekend we went to a Hello Kitty Birthday Party for a cutie little birthday girl. There is a lot of excitement that goes into a one year old birthday bash. The first birthday party celebrates a little one who has changed rapidly before your eyes over a year’s time. So many things happen in that first year. The year is packed full of so many firsts: first smile, first laugh, first time rolling over, crawling, standing, first words… The list goes on. So the party is the time to celebrate everything that has happened. At Hudson’s airplane themed party we were surrounded by friends and family who had walked alongside us over the past year. This Hello Kitty Party was the same. We were all excited to focus on the sweet Ella Jane. She was a pro at opening her presents, well at least those that had tissue paper to grab.
It made me start thinking about how awesome it would be if we celebrated everyone in our lives the way we do with one-year olds. I love to see people truly celebrated and acknowledged. My birthday is quickly approaching and I have already been celebrating. I have been thinking about all the things that have happened over the past year. I am ready to turn the big 28 and I am excited to get this next year started. I think some new adventures are in store for me. I am planning on celebrating like a one-year old this Saturday. I am going to surround myself with some great people (my family). I plan to do some pampering or at least take a long shower, snuggle with my men (Jon and the little walkin’ man Hud), maybe a little shopping and definitely some delicious food. Who knows I may eat cake with my hands and make a big mess!
