Yesterday was Eve’s first birthday party, the forecast was set for cold and rain and final numbers were unknown.
The morning was perfect sunshine and not too cold considering it is winter, we spent that time cleaning running around for balloons and piñata stuffers and golf tees* and icing the cake.
Party time came and the sun decided to hide behind the clouds, the wind twisted and buffered the balloons but no rain came.
It was just perfect, not picture perfect like you see on the extremely styled (probably very expensive) and very chic birthday parties that float around on blogs, but real perfect friends and family relaxing together and enjoying Eve’s celebration.
All in all a day that had me saying the one thing that has constantly sprung to mind since we had Eve, we are truly blessed.
* a cool little pinterest tip that had the balloons staked in around the lawn, it would have been magical if it wasn’t for the wind.
