Our baby girl is ONE!!  I haven’t been on this blog in FOREVER, but Quincy’s first birthday needs documenting :)  I had no theme but wanted it to be dainty and sweet and beautiful, just like our girl.  We celebrated with a small family party at home with the best donuts in town (VG’s) and cake!  My friend Esther of Wallflower Inspiration made the most beautiful flower arrangements for the table and she left me with some extras that I used to decorate the cakes!  I made a tiny little cake just for Q that she barely ate, but oh my was it cute to watch :)  And we got all the perfect paper goods and balloons from Witty Bash.  It hit me after her party that this is the last first birthday party I’ll ever throw.  It’s crazy how fast this season of life is going.  The years keep passing by quicker and quicker and it honestly blows my mind that Quincy is already one!  I feel like I blinked and here we are.  Bitter sweet emotions for sure.  But this girl….she has been such a joy in every way.  She is honestly the happiest baby I have ever known.  Always smiling and laughing and making everyone’s day.  It’s been a tough year for me physically dealing with some health issues and I think God knew what he was doing when he gave me her.  She brightens the day of everyone around her.  She does this little thing when she is in a silly mood where she scrunches up her nose and purses her lips and I never ever want to forget it!  I can’t wait to see all that God has in store for her life.  We love you Quincy Mae! You are everything I could have ever wished for!
