Turning 4 and my first published article!

Two blog posts in one week....who am I? Actually, it could have been one long one but I decided to break it up into two.

Much to my chagrin, Brooke went and turned four. It is not that I don't want her to grow up, it's just I don't want her to grow up. Oh, motherhood and it's ever changing emotions. It is breathtaking to watch her grow into her own little person but I can't help missing that sweet, little booski that was cooing at me just yesterday.

Brooke is very into music and dancing right now so we decided to do a dance party to celebrate her big day. We had it at Love2Dance and it was perfect. Because life is so crazy these days I was not able to create a one of kind design for her invite. (What kind of graphic design mother am I?!?) We did a cute invite via paperless post and it was really nice to have a way to track the attendees and not have to deal with printing, etc. I did enjoy it but did feel a little guilty. 

I did create adorable little favor tags that worked perfectly for the dance theme. We bought bubble wands in the shape of a microphone and tied on a glow in the dark ring, beaded necklace and Hello Kitty tattoos to match the Hello Kitty theme of the room we rented. The day was amazing for Brooke and I was thrilled with how smoothly it all went.

 B LOVES Hello Kitty right now (and yellow) so she was pretty stoked on this.

 FOUR!

FOUR!

In other news, I was approached by SMMC (Southern Marin Mother's Club) to write an article on traveling to Yosemite for the SMMC Crier. I love the ladies that work on the Crier (especially since I used to be one of them) so I was thrilled to do it!

Here it is: Yosemite

 

Until next time,
