Happy Monday

Hope everyone had a good week!

This shot was taken yesterday while preparing for Fin’s very small 1st birthday celebration which is happening next weekend. Both Carl and I agreed that balloons and styrofoam centerpieces are out of the question, so I had to come up with other creative ways to decorate this very simple affair. A big shout-out has to go to my sister-in-law, Gabbi who made the cutest giveaways ever for the party!
