let the festivities begin

Friday, July 15, 2011

i am feeling a little festive over here. the weekend is here and only just a few days ago did i realize that the month of july is my first blog birthday! it may seem not a big deal but it is for me!

i started blogging back in 2004/2005 when everyone was in livejournal, blogsome or blogger but i had to quit when i had to focus on being healthy and pregnant in 2006. only last year did i start blogging again when i wanted to document aston's birthday party preparations and stumbled a whole new inspiration along the way and that is YOU!

YOU ~ readers, friends, family and fellow bloggers who remained my biggest supporters are part of this memorable and exciting first year for me. i can't thank you enough for all of your kind and sweet comments. this blog has grown and evolved bigger than i had expected and i am humbled and thrilled that YOU are here!

i have a few fun things in store for everyone in the next few days and weeks leading to the end of july, so keep visiting us here, facebook and also in twitter for updates!

in the meantime, let's enjoy a few whimsical M&M cakes that i've been crushing on lately!

these images are part of a massive inspiration compilation of mine over at pinterest!
