I’m Back! Plus An ABC Party


November 10, 2016 by branchingfig

Two and a half years since my last post and… I’m back!

Quick recap of my last couple of years: bought a house and then moved back from SoCal to NorCal to live in it, remodeled the house, had a kid, took an extended hiatus from employment to raise the kid, made new mom friends, went on a few domestic and international trips, and celebrated plenty of weddings and happy tidings with family and friends.

Upcoming posts will include (in no particular order) adventures in bread baking, remodeling and decorating the house, new recipes, kid stuff, party ideas, and whatever else comes up along the way.

After last night’s election, I thought some light-hearted cuteness was in order, so here it is:


The future of our country, ladies and gents ;)

Coming at you tonight are some photos from Baby A’s first birthday… only took me 3 months to post. I had maybe a little too much fun going all out baking, crafting, and decorating for the ABC themed party.

Thanks to my wonderful sister at ShirfulDesigns for these beautiful photos!

Let me know if you want any more details on any of these and I’ll provide more info or step-by-step instructions. What are your favorite party themes (baby or otherwise)?
