Olivia Michelle Turns One

Has it been a year, already?!?!?

(Actually, it’s been over a year and I’m just getting around to this post, but shhhhh….don’t tell anyone)

My sweet little girl has turned one. She actually turned one on the 20th of last month. I shed tears in my little secret corner, then got up and dusted myself off and threw one heck of a party. Olivia had her best girlfriend over – Sophia and enjoyed her first piece of cake (courtesy of Fat Girl Cakes, shoutout to Kristin!) – along with pb&j, pudding cups, fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, and delicious punch. She walked. She ran. She talked. A lot.

Time flies and I wish it would just slow down, but at the end of the day, I am so grateful that God saw fit to bless our family with such a beautiful and amazing little gift (in addition to my other sweet little man – who will get his own post come his birthday next month!). My sweet friend, Terri Baskin, did me a HUGE favor when I got down on both knees and BEGGGEEEEDDDDD took some time out of one of her days to entertain Olivia and I with a cake smash session. Ya’ll. When I say that she’s sooooo awesome and what she does and how she is able to capture such beautiful moments. 20, 30, 40 years from now, I will be so grateful for these moments. I decided to come and share a few with you all. I know that you, too, will be captured by her sweet spirit (until she realizes that she’s a bit too cute to be covered in cake – haha!). Enjoy!
