On Saturday Evee turned 3 years old.  I know it's right, but it's still almost unbelievable.  To think that I have a 3 year old with another on the way sometimes surprises me and it yet it seems perfect.  So blessed.

Evee is such a sweet soul...that is my very best description of who she is.  She is a gift and one that we treasure.  She has a tender heart, loves people and yet needs space to be who she is, she is stubborn, thankful for and surprised by the smallest of things.  She is ultimately a beautiful person.  I look forward to all the years ahead that we have to get to know who she is even more.

For her birthday she wanted friends over to share cupcakes with, flowers, and to be outside.  Easy enough to make happen.  It was a fun afternoon with friends around and lots of skype conversations with family throughout the day.  It is a great joy to be her mom...


  1. Love it! SO wish we could have been there to celebrate with you. She has got something coming in the mail... please let her know we love her and miss her!

  2. I wish I could have been there too! I hate missing all the birthdays. I miss you guys.

  3. I agree with the rest of the family. Wish we could have been there! Looks like it was a beautiful sunny day to be outside to celebrate.

    I noticed the cupcake papers... what is that?

  4. It's just parchment paper...super easy idea from Real Simple and I've seen it at Whole Foods too (they make their muffins like that). I just cut out some squares. A bit more work, but I didn't have enough cupcake holders for all the cupcakes that were made.
