a celebration

Monday, May 20, 2013

this weekend we celebrated olivia. she's turning four. the party was small, easy, and very low key. i didn't go for pinworthy details, complex menu items, or labor intensive decorations, not that i don't choose that route frequently. but sometimes, burgers, a simple craft, homemade cupcakes the kids decorate themselves, and my sanity still intact, perfectly fits the bill.

this week is a busy one. i'm wrapping up a few projects and i'm moving my blog over to wordpress. i've worked in wordpress for years and build client sites there, so it's a lot easier for me to use. i'll let you know when i make the switch. the energy and stress i saved on the party will be used up on the site design this week, i'm sure. 

hope you have a great week ahead!


  1. what a sweet girl olivia is! she is lucky to have a mama that plans a fun party complete with a rainbow pinata. can't wait to see your redesign!

  2. It all sounds absolutely perfect!

  3. I had this article open in a tab for awhile and I finally read it yesterday. It really hit home with me because I get myself very wound up when participating by hosting or being a guest at an event (it's the virgo in me), but I've been working on it.

    I have realized that that perfectionism makes me not present, which makes the details not worth it. I'm slowly allowing them to fall away.

  4. gorgeous! happy birthday beautiful girl xxx i tried wordpress and could not figure it out at all! xx
