Lydia Turns One!


Most people spend months planning their little one’s first birthday party. Now, while I admire those people, I am not one of them.  I put Lydia’s small, family celebration together in exactly 2 1/2 hours, and that includes invitations, grocery shopping and cooking! No, it was not my original plan, but due to a few unforeseen circumstances we had to reschedule her first birthday bash so we scaled back and kept this one very low key.  And do you know what?  She loved it (well, all but the cake!) Here are a few pics from “The World’s Most Simple 1st Birthday Bash:”
