final secret

We kept one final birthday secret until late in the day yesterday: a gathering for Ella and her friends today.

Full of balloons, cake, squeals and was a special afternoon for the 8-year-old...and a simple one for this mama to plan.

(I always make things more complicated than they are. A "goal" for my responsibilities is to make them the most special and the most simple at the same time. I'm finding the combination can work quite well together. I might post more on this topic later.)


I love a loud house when its full of children's sounds!
