Happy Day!

First of all, it's Big Boy Finn's 3rd Birthday! That's right, folks. At 11pm on my birthday (after a particularly spicy Mexican food dinner), I went into labor. And Finn was born LOTS of hours later. How he's grown! We can't imagine our lives without Finn. What a bright spot in the world!

Also, Wes really came through for my birthday! There was a surprise cake (with surprise guests, to boot), modeled after my blog design (I am eating some as I type). It was a very special day—perfect in so many ways. A letterpress machine from my parents, a Steam Shark mop (to name just one) from Wes, and clouds spilling over the hills (my favorite). And check out that house: scalloped trim? That's awesome.

I hope Finn has an equally wonderful day! We're off to Ikea for lunch, and any toy he pleases. It's been rainy, so we're keeping it indoors:
Hope yours is a Happy Day, as well!

Happy Birthday Finn. Luke's 3rd Birthday is rapidly approaching and I'm not sure how we are going to celebrate.

That cake rocks! What a sweet guy Wes is. And Happy Birthday to the little guy! Peyton isn't far behind Finn; his birthday is March 2nd. If these boys lived near each other, they could be buddies! :-)
And I ♥ Ikea. Have lots of fun!

I never knew about your blog... until Wes came to my shop (Cupcakes & Co) to order your cake! I really hope you enjoyed it! ...and definitely Wes put so much thought... I think we collaborated for about 30 minutes... he wanted to make sure it was very special for you!

BTW... since then I've become a fan... seriously your page is amazing and all your photos are beautiful!

Best!
