We celebrated Miles’s upcoming first birthday with a vintage circus party. I went overboard. And I am so happy I did. Everyone said, “Don’t go crazy – he won’t even remember it.” Well, I can tell you there was more reason for me to celebrate this year than any other, and it was beyond special for me and my family. So, yeah, Miles probably won’t remember this day if it weren’t for the photos, but it will be a constant reminder to me of how far he’s come. (See his birth day here and here.)I really just wanted to celebrate how much joy he has brought into my life. I should have a party like this every day.
I am so so happy that my brother and his family came (yay, Fleezies!) and so thankful for our group of friends who helped (esp. M+C and J+J) and who celebrated with us. Thank you for the gifts and for the donations to Ronald McDonald House!
Big thanks to Merrick Ales for some of the shots below.
