happy birthday, little blog! {day 365}

Today is day 365…holy cow, little bloggy is a year old! We celebrated with a candle in a scoop of ice cream-yum! I am grateful for my hubby who celebrates my accomplishments-even if its something random and silly like blogging every day for a year. He also planned a sweet fondue date night tonight, which was wonderful. I am so blessed.
What are you grateful for today, sweet friends?

sweet little buster {day 364}

Today this sweet baby boy turns 4 years old. I am, I think, still in denial. How could this possibly be true?
I am grateful for Riley, for his crazy silly little self that makes me laugh until I cry, and for his sweet and tender spirit that loves to snuggle and “writes letters” to his friend Harlow and tells his auntie that he misses her and wants to sleep over.
Happy birthday, little buster (even though you’re not that little anymore)! Auntie Beana and Uncle Drew love you tons!!

I’d like to introduce you to my godson and favorite preschooler (holy cow, how did that happen?!?!), Riley, also affectionately known as lb or little buster.
in my head he still looks something like this:

(I know, he’s precious, right?!)
but the truth is that he’s this tiny man now, totally full of personality, and now he’s in preschool! dang, time really does fly!

I’m grateful for his smiles, for invitations to come watch movies with him “auntie beana, please come over and watch my movie,” and his fierce head-butt hugs that I love. happy first day of school, lb!
