I probably started thinking about my baby girls first birthday party when she turned about 6 months old! Now that doesn’t mean I started planning it than (contrary to what my husband thinks) but I started throwing ideas around and I kept coming back to the idea of Bohemian but with lots of wood and natural elements in it as well. So I came up with a Bohemian Woodland theme and than I had to start planning. Colours, menu, flowers, gifts…. the list was endless what needed to be done so once the list was made it was just a matter getting to work scratching things off! The colour palette I chose was blush pink, coral, gold and white! (All eyes are probably rolling thinking of course she went with those colours but there is more to it than just the fact I like the colours) I needed to get a hold of a few key elements – a tent, dreamcatcher, flowers and lots of yummy food! I started my research and ended up working with the most amazing shops to put together what I think was the cutest first birthday party! My dad always teases me that I put too much work and effort into the parties I through but the truth is I just love doing it I just don’t always have the budget to go with my dreams and ideas! The best part of a lot of the items I used as decor at her party is that I can now incorporate them into her bedroom decor. A special thank you to all our friends and family as special those of you who drove from far and wide to be with us to celebrate our special girl! And a BIG thank you to all the shops that I had the pleasure of working with – without you all this party wouldn’t have been what it was so THANK YOU!

PS her floral crown was a labour of her mommy’s and auntie’s love. We may have stayed up way too late the night before trying to figure out how to make one even with Pinterest’s help we struggled and we weren’t even drinking wine but I am happy with how it turned out not perfect but definitely made with love.

For a full list of all the shops and products I used in hosting this party please see the list below!

  • You my girl are going to do great things - you already are! This girl never ceases to amaze me and make me proud to be her mama! Her teacher asked to speak to us yesterday - we had no idea why -  her teacher started to share with us  about how kind Gray is and how proud she is of Gray. There is a student in their class that has special needs and Gray has taken such good care of of this little boy since the beginning of the year - she plays with him at recess and make sure he is always included. Her teacher was so impressed by how kind and loving Gray is and of course I wasn’t surprised but The tears did fall as I looked at my girl beaming with  pride. You see this sweet girl has an ability to see people for who they are on the inside. She has been talking about this little boy for the past month and a half when she shares about her day and I had no idea he had special needs or that he was any different than she was cause she doesn’t see him that way she sees him as an equal. How different this world would be if we all treated each other as equal and shared love and kindness with each other!
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall...
It doesn’t matter if I’m short or tall...
If I have skinny legs or my hips are wide...
It only matters who I am inside...
Blue eyes, brown eyes, black or green...
What makes me most beautiful can not be seen...
When you look at me, don’t judge me by my parts...
The most beautiful about me is my heart  #myhomesense
  • Happy Thanksgiving! I hope however you’ve celebrated whether today or this weekend you spent it verbalizing to the ones you love how thankful you are for them! It would be silly of me to try and tag the ones I’m thankful for but I truly feel blessed and I hope those of you know who you are!
  • Fear: feeling induced by perceived danger, a response to a specific stimulus occurring in the present, or in anticipation or expectation of a future. Fear of heartbreak? Fear of the diagnosis? Fear of abandonment? Fear of judgment? Fear of peoples perception of you? Fear of your bank account number? Fear is everywhere and I for one struggle with it! I find music to be a powerful tool in my life and these lyrics have been repeatedly playing over in my head this past week- I wake up singing them I sing them all day long and yet they aren’t just lyrics they are a declaration of truth that I am holding onto “There is no fear and no shame
Your love won't rise above
Every failure sealed within Your grave
For love has overcome”
  • Canadian Thanksgiving is days away and as much as this dreary rain would love to drag me down I can’t help but feel so grateful for so many things in my life! I have started keeping a running list of things throughout my day that I am thankful for like not just the obvious big things but the little ones too like a hot cup of coffee and a warm fuzzy blanket - do you know what that does for my thought process when I focus on all I do have to be thankful for!! What are you thankful for today?
  • Kissing another weekend goodbye but it was a good one! Anyone else wondering  where September went and how is it October tomorrow already!? Exciting things are happening in October so I’m not complaining but I feel like I blinked and September was over!
