summer's first birthday cake smash!

"A One-year-old child is so many things -- A tiny discoverer of butterfly wings, A hugger of Teddies, A sweet sleepyhead, And someone to dream for in bright years ahead"

We had Summer’s first birthday cake smash downtown. I biked over to the location (love living downtown), and noticed how pretty the weather had become. It wasn’t the terrible midwest humidity or oppressive heat from a few days before. It was just the perfect late summer afternoon. The little garden we were in was overflowing with Brown Eyed Susans, a million golden petals creating a visual symphony of summer delight.

We put together some vintage-y party decorations for Miss Summer, who was just darling in her white birthday dress. When it came time for the cake smash, she was a little uncertain, despite having practiced on a cupcake the day before, but before long she was digging in. She got a little help from her big sister, too (who had her own special cupcake).

Big sister Leah was adorable as well, and she was so excited to tell me about her new shoes from Target. Any girl who loves Target is my BFF. Later that evening I got a text from mom: “Just put Leah to bed and asked her what her favorite part of the day was (something we do every night) and she said ‘going to the park to take pictures with Miss Ashlee; she’s so beautiful.’” Probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard.

So glad I got to see this bunch (and meet dad!) again — Tracy had already come with the girls to share her story for Project Motherhood.

Biking home at sunset, the day had ripened into something even sweeter. The smell of due was in the air. A coolness was settling over the city. It was the prettiest evening I had experienced all summer. Truly a perfect day.
