this week, with a mingled sense of excitement, grief, happiness and disbelief, i put the invitations for arty’s first birthday party in the post.

(excuse my dirty fingernails – i’d just been doing some gardening!)
 
i found the invitations on etsy – they’re vintage, dutch, and about fifty kinds of cute.
s-j is planning his cake, and i’m collecting bits and pieces for some fun party bags.
this day is going to be upon us before we know it, and we’re going to do our best to make it special.
