Hudson's 1st Birthday!

Wow, Hudson’s first birthday snuck up so fast. I had so much fun planning his backyard party.  I knew I wanted to do a picnic theme because nothing says summer like a picnic! I also knew I wanted to do something I hadn’t seen before. I definitely use Pinterest to look at all different types of party ideas and party decor. I usually just take certain things I see and like and build off of that (creatively speaking). My brain gets to swirling for days—it is literally hard for me to fall asleep at night. Hahaha.

Seaside, Florida

 Wow. Let me just say wow. Seaside, Florida, quickly became one of my all time favorite places to travel. If you dislike perfect-picturesque-everything around every turn, then you might hate it. It truly is one of the most quaint and picturesque places I’ve been.

Beckhams's 3rd Birthday

Well here I go again, posting birthday party photos like a million years later. 
I’ve put this off because I was struggling to decide which pictures to post, so I thought I would just post them all. Haha.
Beckham turned three in December. I can’t help but get excited about birthdays. I always want to make birthdays feel extra special and celebrated in our home, especially for our children. I feel like going a little over the top on decor makes it feel festive and fun, and is specific to them and the stage of life they are in. I think it’s something they will remember forever.

Oh Darling.

It's been so long since I've put some of my deep thoughts into a post. Ever since my Instagram and blog were plagiarized by someone word for word and picture for picture, I have felt fear of putting my heart into words again. (Anyone remember that?) It sort of stole my passion for writing and sharing for fear that my words and thoughts would be stolen again by someone pretending they were original to their own way of thinking.

This is 27!

I have to say I’ve always feared getting older. Aging is such a funny, inevitable thing. I think it’s scary because it’s unknown. Picturing yourself old and grey knowing you will look like a completely different version of yourself after years gone by.
But I have to say 27 feels good. I like that number, it sounds semi mature. I’m in that late twenties category which is strange. It kinda feels like my ‘sweet spot’ of life right now. I feel like I’m settling into who I am as a person.

Cookie Class with @prettysweetcookies

Okay. Let me start by saying if you haven’t ever taken a cookie decorating class with Allison of @prettysweetcookies, what are you doing with your life?
This class was seriously so much fun! We all had the absolute best time. Trying to figure out when we can go again...and again...and again. You get it.

Our Family Christmas Cookie Recipe

Merry Christmas to you! I am sharing a very old recipe that has been in my family for generations. This recipe comes from my Grandma Lillian who was my Grandpa's mother (on my moms side). These cookies taste like nostalgia to me. I grew up eating these cookies every Christmas. My grandma would make HUNDREDS of them and have us all over to (stress her out) and decorate them. She had an entire system with sprinkle regulation and wet rags for hand wiping. That accompanied by a strict rule, not to lick your fingers. It was seriously always one of my favorite holiday traditions. We would each go home with a box of cookies too. She was (and is) the real MVP.
