Whew..I did it!

So, I made it through the first year being the mother of two. There were days when I wondered whether I could truly climb this mountain successfully {that being the key word!}. Cole is now 1 as of yesterday and we celebrated in style on Saturday, June 25, which was my 35th birthday. Or we can call it 29th, you choose. I think I have mentioned before that along with both of my children I, too,  have a birthday in June. What a month!

So, before I started Libby Lane Press I had been planning Cole's birthday party. I had my ideas, printed papers neatly organized into my 'Cole's Party' file, Pinterest board quickly filling with 'pins' and the to-do list in hand ready to go. And then I decided to embark on this graphic design journey and my own personal party planning seemed to take a back seat. So, my grandiose plan may not be as elaborate as I had initially dreamed but we had a wonderful day with family and friends celebrating the milestone birthday for my sweet boy, Cole Everett. Enjoy the pictures and know that true love is poured into each and every detail.. even if it was at 3am days leading up to this sea creature soiree.
