This will be my last post on this blog. One day I might figure out how to combine my old and new blog. I have been on wordpress for two years, I’m happy with my new blog and am excited about where my blog is going. Here’s the link to my new blog.
Finally, here are the pictures of Alice Jane and Blake’s birthday party. The picture quality is not the best but I still wanted to share the pictures because we had a great time. We had a ton of pictures, so I had a lot to weed through. We did a combined birthday because Blake’s birthday had just passed and Alice Jane hadn’t had her birthday yet but we were moving. It just made sense to have them together and I think they actually preferred it that way. These cousins had such a good time, I’m so thankful for everyone that came and celebrated with us. These two are getting so big, It’s hard to believe sometimes how much they’ve grown.
I had so much fun making the cupcakes. I made unicorn horns for Alice Jane’s cupcakes and batman symbol for Blake’s. I’m going to do another post soon about how I made horns and batman symbol using chocolate.
My baby is 5 and I can’t believe it! It’s seems so cliche to talk about how fast time has gone and how big she is now but it’s just so true. I just can’t believe she was that little baby and now she’s basically grown. February 5th we had a fun low key day; I put up some balloons, decorations, baked a cake and got her the perfect gift, (a baby stroller) she was so excited. It was a great morning and I loved spending the day with our little family. I will be posting about Alice Jane’s party, that we threw for her before we moved to Miami. Plus a bonus picture of Adelaide, because, she’s too much!
I knew this day would come, and I thought I would be sad, but I’m not. This whole past year I’ve come to terms that I would be turning 30. I think it’s really helped me cope having a whole year to get used to it. Now that I’m here, and have looked back at my past 30 years, I’m happy. I’ve been through a lot, had a lot of love, grown stronger, been blessed, and at the end of it all, I’m happy to be 30. It’s true when they say that, wisdom comes with age. I’m not saying I’m super wise, but I can tell that what I’ve experienced in my life has turned to wisdom. I feel like life experiences is where true wisdom comes from: witnessing, living, loving; all of these things bring wisdom in life’s lessons. I’m happy to be older, wiser, and battered body. I also look at what I’ve been through physically, having two babies, and realize that it’s worth it. Extra weight gain, stretch marks; it’s all worth it. I’m so thankful for what God’s given me. I’m so thankful for my 30 years, and God’s help and love the whole way through, otherwise, I know I wouldn’t have made it.
On a less serious note, Miami just keeps surprising me. There’s so many layers to this city, I don’t know if I will ever get over it. This past weekend we went to Wynwood in Miami, and I was floored. I have never seen anything like it. I honestly can’t even fully describe it. It’s the most unique, interesting art scene I have ever witnessed, and I only saw a small piece of it. I am really excited to explore more of it. I think it’s safe to say that this lavender gate is the highlight of these pictures. This is actually a beautiful restaurant that I hope to try some time.
