Just shy of one year ago today, we were checking into the hospital to get ready to meet our little girl. And in the blink of an eye, we are having her first birthday party. We are so thankful for this little surprise and the JOY she brings to our lives!

I’m happy to share more details on each individual idea but before she turned one tomorrow, I wanted to share with you some images from her sweet party. We are truly so thankful for each of you that came and shared in her celebration of this first year of life. God is so good and we are so thankful for this little girl!

One day, I pray she will look back on this day and recognize how many people truly loved celebrating with her!

She had such a great time and LOVED seeing all of her people in one place…until we tried to take her cake. 😉


Happy first birthday, Callie! We love you!

PS Thank you to Eva Higgins Photography and my college roommate, Night Owl Design, for the invitation!

PSS Most everything you see is thrifted or things we already had…from shower curtains I found at Goodwill to use as tablecloths to the Coca-Cola tray I may have paid too much for (but I can’t wait for you to see it in my Christmas tour!).  It was so much fun to add these tiny details and this truly would have been impossible without the help of so many of our family and friends. My brother and sister-in-law came early and she was a life saver as I forgot so many little things.

PSS Thank YOU for hanging around as we grow together as a family and learn something new every day!
