Happy Birthday Brooks

Today you turn 3 my dear Brooks, this is no news to me or you

You’ve brought more joy to my life than I even know what to do

Your spirit is like no other, uniquely created by our Heavenly Father

Some days seem long, but the years are short –

But even on the long days you could never be a bother

You see my sweet, each night I pray –

For all your hopes and dreams to come true

Because your daddy and I prayed for a child just like you

I don’t always get things right, but this much I know

To me, my little nugget, I will always love you so

Brooks’ 2nd Birthday

This year Geoff and I were both lucky enough to have the ability to take B’s actual birthday off. To celebrate, we took some purposeful family time to one of our favorite spots, Lower Lewis. You might remember our recent visit there for our camp story adventures. We had to go back to what might be our last time out there, especially with a bright sunny day like this! ☀️ While the water was fa-reez-ing, the sky was clear and the sun was shining bright. I basically did a polar plunge with my feet 😬, but was so worth the lack of circulation just to be there playing in the stream.

It was a sweet day for us as a family to celebrate B’s special day, pups included.

Two part blog! How lucky are y’all?? 😉 I really just wanted to show y’all the cuteness that is Maly Tross Paper Collective! She made these adorable signs to go along with our ‘Transportation’ themed party vibe. She was such a doll to work with, I sent her my ideas and sayings, and she came up with the rest! We worked so well together. So well, in fact, I’d love to continue working with her in the future. 🤗 *hint, hint Aly* I love supporting local shops, not to mention she’s a Vet and military spouse. Whaaaa?? I know. She’s pretty rad.

Anyway, I’ll let her work speak for itself!

If y’all follow my IG stories, you might’ve seen me struggling through B’s bday cake. #notabaker! 😅BUT, while my technique might be nothing short of sub-par, the chocolate butter cream frosting and double-layered yellow cake finale, was not…If I don’t say so myself. 🙌🏼🚂*toot toot* I also went easy p on the snack items with some good ol’ Southern flare from Chick-Fil-A. Mmm, reminds me of home! 🏡

I didn’t capture too many pics for B’s bday party, I just wanted to have the time to be with our friends who came over to celebrate his special day! And I really wanted to give a shout out to Aly with Maly Tross for her always stylish paper goods. *Not pictured: the super cute letters she created for a banner I was supposed to put together…but, sadly it did not make the creative cut during my day-of-party-setup. Only due to my inability to get my ish together, not because of it’s lack in bday party cuteness. 👌🏼

Also, as if this post didn’t have enough content…I’ve officially created a YouTube channel! Check out the video below and subscribe to my YouTube to never miss a vid!😱🎥📽

Thanks so much for reading and your love on Brooks’ birthday!
