It all started 12 years ago today...

I'm sure it's a common tale, but 12 years ago today I gave birth to my darling baby girl which started it all...  With her arrival came my obsession with scrapbooking which later expanded to include a love for all paper crafts.
She's already starting to feel like a teenager to me with her entering middle school this year and getting her braces on.  They really do grow up too quickly... :(

Happy 12th Birthday Sweetie! I love you!
I remember celebrating her first birthday like it was yesterday.  Her party landed just days after September 11th... My husband had been traveling in Asia on business during the attacks and had been unable to return home when all the US airports closed. All I wanted was for him to be home safely by my side during that terrible time. It was stressful trying to plan a first birthday by myself, but he was lucky and caught literally one of the first flights allowed back to the US, arriving home 30 minutes before the party was scheduled to start. We have pictures of him with a party hat on and sleeping through the festivities on the living room floor due to jet lag, but I was just so happy to have him home...
This weekend we are celebrating her birthday with a backyard carnival theme (and a backyard camp out with her girlfriends).  It's supposed to be 95 degrees here so we'll see how long we want to stay outside.  Next week I will make sure to share photos of the invites and decorations I made.  ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by.

  1. Happy Birthday! What memories! Our son was just four months old and I remember being relieved that he was too young to try and explain 9/11. Thank you so much for the sweet comments on my blog and Bella's! It means a lot to me! :)
