Arrive before you’re ready and that’s the price you pay for having a really great weekend.
More tomorrow, friends.
At the beginning of the summer I put lettuce in this planter that sits on the railing by my kitchen door. It was super convenient to go out there and pick some for a salad or a sandwich but eventually it bolted (as lettuce does) and I yanked it out. I was at the nursery shortly after that and I grabbed a couple of 6 packs of cosmos figuring that they would be a nice pop of color in this spot. I came home and plopped the 6 packs in the empty container and forgot all about them. In other words, I never actually planted them. Whoops. When I did finally go to plant them the roots had grown right through the containers and they were pretty well set – I couldn’t have planted them properly without ripping the roots apart so I let them be. And clearly they aren’t any worse for it as they are blossoming and thriving.
There’s an allegory in there somewhere that relates to people and leaving them be to find their way, I think.
Here’s hoping you find your way to some fun this weekend!
Once again I appear to be without 3 things that are actually . . . cohesive. I do have three things on my mind, however, and I’m ready to share them with you.
If you wrote a post for today I hope you’ll include a link! Thanks for joining in on Three Things Thursday.
Our tiny person turned one last Thursday and his mom and dad threw him a terrific birthday party on Saturday. They all love the movie The Greatest Showman so they went with a circus theme and it was adorable.
I made the banner for his smash cake.
And a clown crudite platter.
There were cupcakes with lollipop balloons made by my friend Caroline.
And cupcakes with animal crackers made by my friend Sean.
And a smash cake, of course.
Hannah helped Jessica with the table settings and they were adorable.
Colorful and bright and completely on point for the theme.
The favors thanked everyone for making Jack’s birthday the “greatest show”. Soo cute!
Grampa came dressed as the Ringmaster and I think Jack spent a fair amount of time looking at him and trying to figure out how come he didn’t look like Hugh Jackman. (I’ve wondered that myself on occasion, I will admit.)
Everyone sang Happy Birthday but Jack only had eyes for that cake.
As my friend Leslie said, a baby and his first cake. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Happy First Birthday, little Jackie! Your family and friends love you so much!
